Boomer alert

by rmf on 12/9/2007

"Encore" is a well-written, thought-provoking, timely book addressed to the demographic "mouse through the python" that is the Boomer generation. Marc Freedman's thesis is that we are living longer, and that many somewhat early retirees will face up to thirty years after the first career, in many cases longer than we worked. This represents a vast reservoir of experience which could be redirected into other ventures which would benefit society and give a sense of self-worth to the individual as well as provide income. He states that if everyone delayed the initiation of Social Security drawdown by two years, the system would be self-maintaining. His emphasis is on second careers which lead to paid executive action with little emphasis on part time volunteering or being a lower level employee after what may have been many years as an executive. However, the book is well written with profiles of several people who have taken different approaches to the problems of a second career. If you're looking to volunteer part time, travel, and play with the grandkids, look elsewhere for advice.

Product Overview

From the author of "Prime Time" comes this description of the competing visions of work that are capturing the hearts, minds, and the time of baby boomers who are not content--or affluent enough--to spend their next 20 or 30 years on the golf course.
