The Baby Boom Generation is reaching Retirement age in massive numbers, and thanks to increases in longevity, most are likely to live 30 years or longer in retirement.
The other stages of life have established blueprints which have been handed down through the generations. However, no prior generation has ever experienced a 30 year period of "retirement", so we have no established road map for navigating the challenges and opportunities of this stage of life.
Traditional language identifies this stage as "The Retirement Years". However, it appears that a new definition is required to describe the emotional, physical, and psychological changes which are experienced. The term "Retirement" implies an ending, but it is now becoming clear that this stage of life is actually a new beginning – a complex, uncertain but exciting stage of life.
This book is intended to help provide a clear vision for these years, and to anticipate what is likely to come.
