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:

  • Design your own “retirement” and plan for it.
  • Use your time creatively and well.
  • Understand what's changing in the workplace and the workforce today.

  • Make your money last.

  • Renegotiate life at home.
  • Improve and keep your health.

  • Build and leave a legacy.

  • Simplify your life.

  • And much, much more.
