A Baby Boomer's Guide to Their Second Sixties
Turning sixty is not for the
faint hearted. There are issues ahead. The first thing we
all face is taking care of aging parents or what the author
refers to as helping your parents check out. Then there are
our own Boomer health issues. The quirky economist author
finds humor in all of our aging experiences. This book
covers Boomer issues, all in the context of our Boomer
culture. We Boomers thought we would be young forever. Maybe
that is why it is so amusing.
|Do Not Go Gentle: Successful Aging for Baby Boomers and All Generations
By drawing on his own
transformational experience, the author offers readers a
role model for healthy aging. Yet he never glosses over the
difficulties inherent in his plan: his methods are simple,
but they require serious commitment to combat decades of
poor lifestyle choices. As living proof that we're never too
old to be healthy, Dr. Kownacki challenges baby boomers, who
once defined what it meant to be young in America, to now
define what it means to age well.
|The Retirement Maze: What You Should Know Before and After You Retire
This book investigates the
struggles faced by retirees in building a new life outside
of the workforce. It provides an honest assessment of
retirement, based on the not-always-acknowledged fact that
it is a difficult transition with pitfalls and obstacles to
be overcome. By reading about the experiences of their
peers, current and future retirees will come to understand
that others share their difficulties adjusting, and that
tactics are available to improve their comfort level in
retirement as well as their overall well-being.
|The Art of Growing Old: Aging with Grace
In this timely and
essential book, the author offers a fresh perspective on the
art of growing old. She confronts head-on the inevitable
grief we sustain at the loss of our youth and explains how
refusing to age and move forward in life is actually what
makes us become old. Combining personal anecdotes with
psychological theory, philosophy, and eye-opening scientific
research from around the world, she shows why we should look
forward to embracing everything aging has to offer in terms
of human and spiritual enrichment.
|Growing Up: Retro Nostalgia & Humor of the 1940's & 1950's
A hilarious novel that
chronicles the universal journey of growing up during the
Golden Age of Innocence in a series of short, easy-reading
chapters based on the embellished life of the author's alter
ego, "Chip." Whether you grew up during the 1940's, 1950's,
early '60's or later and are from the Silent Generation, a
Baby Boomer, Gen X'er, Gen Y'er or a young adult or teenager
who wants to experience a wonderful, simpler time, this is
an "every person" book which relates to the benchmark
moments of our lives.
|Europe on a Dime: Five-Star Travel on a One-Star Budget: The Tightwad Way to Go
The author points out that
the recent sharp decline in the value of the U.S. dollar has
made apartment living the only practical alternative for
many cost-conscious American travelers.
Baby Boomers, especially,
crave five-star luxury on a one-star budget. The hostels
they frequented in their 20s won't do any more. They want en
suite bathrooms, not a shower room down the hall, and a
suitcase on wheels, not a pack on their backs. This book
tells the largest demographic in American history exactly
how to travel Europe in a systematic way designed to
maximize enjoyment while minimizing cost.
