Six Thousand Sunrises: Making the Most of Every Day in Your Senior Years by Robert Emmons

When we look at today's life expectancy tables, we discover that the person who retires at age sixty-five can expect to live to eighty-three years. The challenge we face is how to maximize this marvelous gift of extended life. How can we make the most of each of six thousand days that this represents? How can we enrich these potentially abundant opportunities of all that life has to offer through community involvement and personal exploration? This book is about making the last two decades of life the most fulfilling.
