By Richard J. Leider and David A. Shapiro
More than 10,000 people turn 50 every day in the U.S. How do they handle this shift? This book invites this group of “new elders” to ask four key questions:
- Who am I? New elders synthesize and transfer the wisdom of the past into the present.
- Where do I belong? They have a powerful sense of where they have come from, where they are, and where they are going.
- How do I bring my passions alive? They rejoice in rediscovering their life’s work, their calling, their vocation.
- What is my life’s purpose? Freed from imposed schedules and demands, new elders now find the freedom to create their lives anew.
This timely book describes how new older adults can rekindle the good life, relight the fire within, and share that warmth and light with others. 150 pages. September 2004.
