Summary
"The old idea of 'retirement'--a word that means withdrawal, describing a time when people gave up productive employment and shrank their activities--was a short-lived historical anomaly. Humans have always found meaning and motivation in work and community, Farrell notes, and the boomer generation, poised to live longer in better health than any before, is already discovering unretirement: extending their working lives, often with new careers, entrepreneurial ventures, and volunteer service. Their experience, wisdom--and importantly, their continued earnings--will enrich the American workplace, treasury, and our whole society in the decades to come"--Amazon.com
Summary
An optimistic report on how aging baby boomers are positively contributing to the economy argues that an avoidance of retirement through new careers, entrepreneurial ventures and volunteer services has brought motivation and purpose to countless Americans
