I thought this book might offer a more personal "how to" about navigating life after 60. To me it was more about societal changes and that was an informative read as well.

Joanne has given us a road to travel in this book. She has told us where the road goes and what to expect along way and has even given us a map to get where we want to go. If we need help along the way, we are shown where and how to get it. It is a must read for anyone over the age of 21.
