December 20, 2012

I am excited to announce the publication of LIVE SMART AFTER 50! The Experts’ Guide to Life Planning for Uncertain Times—the result of generous collaboration of 33 experts on positive aging and members of the national non-profit Life Planning Network.

It has been my privilege to work with this rich array of professional over the last two years to help write and produce this indispensable life planning handbook for all adults entering midlife and beyond. The book — available for pre-order now — has already received a stack of praise.

It is filled with thoughtful essays on how to find and create purposeful second acts, discover encore work, forge critical conversations to deal with diverging views in relationship on how to live the rest of life, extensive resources for care-giving, critical information about preparing end-of-life documents, and encouraging advice about finding creative and spiritual renewal. It is also filled with provocative, useful self-exploration exercises and nuts-and-bolts resources.

Here’s what the book’s own promotion says,” LIVE SMART AFTER 50! offers friendly, focused, forward thinking and action-oriented help to the challenges of aging in the 21st century.  Rich in practical experience and wisdom, self exploration exercises, and diverse resources, it’s a companionable guide for planning and preparing for the second half of life.

In a unique collaboration, thirty-three of the nation’s experts in life planning and positive aging distill the most critical issues.  From finding work, community, creativity, purpose and legacy to financing your dreams, making sure your voice is heard, anticipating challenges of aging, and living with purpose and vitality, LIVE SMART AFTER 50! will help you get the big picture, identify and reduce risks, expand choices, and prepare to take advantage of—rather than fear—the future.
