Why would anyone not invest a few bucks to get as much information as possible before making such a large investment in money and retirement decisions! I can’t get down to The Villages as easy as some, so your information is very helpful from afar. So far your research is answering questions that I did not even know to ask.”
– Richard E.
I’m truly enjoying all the info you’re providing, it’s making my upcoming retirement have a great vision! I can’t wait till my next visit to TV!

We live in Iowa, plan to retire in the next 12-18 months. The Villages is first choice, based on all of the activities. Other communities have better home pricing, but less to do. We want to retire and enjoy all our life’s work, and this is a way to get the insight into helping us make the best decision. We can’t possibility do all this research on our own from the mid-west.– William A.
My downtown Chicago condo is on the market and I am looking forward to a move to the Villages. Your book is terrific and a big help for those of us who are mobilizing to move there in the future. Thanks for putting it together and, of course, adding to it every couple of years is a great bonus for all of us. Glad you are so dedicated to your work!– Jean K.
We just closed this week on our new villa in The Villages and I want to stay current since we will not move in until the Fall. Your book has been our constant reference guide, it’s great, thank you. Can’t wait to get there and start having fun!!– Marilyn M.
Ryan, just a note to tell you how happy we are to have found you and your book about The Villages. My husband and I have been visiting the Villages over the last 2 years, and are thinking seriously of make The Villages our retirement destination. We’re headed down to spend some time this summer to experience what it will be like in the heat of the summer. Your book, monthly newsletters and useful information have been immensely helpful to us. – Joan T.
We wanted an unbiased assessment of The Villages and that’s exactly what we found in the book. Inside the Bubble provides a realistic view of the average life in The Villages without hype or the very biased media reports one might find. We found the real estate purchasing and average monthly budget section very helpful. I wouldn’t buy in The Villages before reading this book. Inside the Bubble is a must read for anyone considering The Villages. You will find all the information about fees, CDD bonds, etc in this book to help you make an informed decision about Villages life and expenses. We’re buying here without reservation because of the book and the newsletter. – Rocky H.
My husband and I are both enjoying your book. It was recommended to us by an acquaintance who built a house in The Villages in December. They said it was very helpful to them before, during and after their process. We have definitely learned things while reading. – Linda J.
My wife and I did a lifestyle visit at the end of January. We fell in love with The Villages. We have friends that have lived there for six years and they love it as well. With that said, we are not naive or gullible enough to only read and listen to their marketing. We want to read and hear about what it like to live there full-time. We want to make an educated decision. We also will explore other retirement communities. Thank you for providing valuable information about The Villages both good and bad. I asked my wife to give me your book for my birthday. – Brad T.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of buying, or renting a home in The Villages. This book covers everything! – Nancy B.
We just closed on our new home in the Village of Dunedin. We could not be happier. Read your book, Inside the Bubble, on our flight down from Philadelphia. One of the most informative books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. There were several of your points that we brought up to both our Realtor and at The Villages Orientation Rep in Brownwood. Our Rep there was very interested when we told them of your book and thought it would be a great welcoming gift. Likewise, our Realtor and Freedom Title expressed the same sentiments. Thank you for taking the time to write it in the first place and, more importantly for us, updating it on an annual basis. – Ron and Frances L.
We were strongly considering moving to The Villages. Your book is full of very useful information that helped to reaffirm our decision to move there. We will use it as a reference in our process of moving in the next month or so. Thank you. – Ronald D.
My wife and I are trying to decide if The Villages will provide the kind of retirement opportunities we are looking for. But it’s more than just activities. It’s day to day living and all those other things that have to be considered. Your book not only gives details of the everyday items but helps us understand many of the items that tend to be an afterthought! – Michael B.
Inside The Bubble is filled with useful information! Well worth the money, and a very easy read.Thanks Ryan! – Mike C.
I have enjoyed reading Inside the Bubble and am getting ready to order Florida for Boomers based on the information I have read in your book. An honest unbiased look into The Villages, your book has provided me with many answers about purchasing a property in The Villages. Without your book I would have never thought about several items your book has touched on. Thank you very much for proving this behind the scenes view and insights to this very interesting community. – Ed P.
I wish I knew about your book four years ago when I bought my first house in The Villages. Now I am in the process of buying my second home and your book has proven most useful. Because I am a snowbird, your book really gave me real insights about “The Bubble” that I needed to know. Thanks Again. – Von F.
If you’re looking to retire in The Villages, you owe it to yourself to purchase this book. Found it very informative and interesting. I am about one year away from taking the plunge. The section on what the various fees covered was very informative and the additional websites you included for more information in several of the chapters is also helpful. – James M.
I ordered this book to get a better idea of what it would be like to live in The Villages – and I got that plus so much more. I not only learned more about the fabulous Villages, but Ryan also pointed out the pros & cons of moving anywhere – some things that had never entered my mind. From what he tells about The Villages, I am ready to sell this house and move to Florida … if I can ever convince my husband to leave this house in Kentucky! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone considering such a move. – Marjorie W.
