Baby Boomers are reinventing retirement just as they have so many other aspects of their lives. They will live longer and be healthier than their parents and grandparents, and they plan to remain relevant, be fulfilled, and leave legacies. Many will continue to work well into their 70s and 80s, some because they want to, others because they need to.
The Retirement Boom is a practical roadmap for making your "retirement years" a time of reinvention, excitement, and fulfillment.
The coauthors of this practical guide are four Boomer professionals who have walked the walk and transformed themselves from corporate executives, CEOs, consultants, and national security policy experts into a range of new careers that more closely hew to their passions. They interviewed more than 300 people and 30 organizations in the writing of this book.
The Retirement Boom includes tips, stories, exercises, and techniques to help you:

A useful, empowering and enjoyable read packed with stories and information. I'm 25+ years from retirement, but I had heard about these co-authors' style and it's never too early to start thinking about or planning on this topic, especially in view of semi-recent economic events. So much on this topic can be scary or dry. This book, however, is story-filled, information-packed and an enjoyable and empowering read. I hadn't really thought about it before, but especially enjoyed the "Leaving your legacy" chapter-- defining and acting on your values, gifts to your family and/or society, of time, money or being a role model - eye-opening, compassionate, very thought-full. I highly recommend it for all boomers, but also for us GenX-ers who like to think ahead. I may pick up a few for holiday gifts.
This is a "must buy" for anyone entering their retirement phase, and who want to reinvent themselves and reboot!
