Review:

“It’s not about staying young, but aging well. Rosensweig and Liu, a finance professor and a business journalist, respectively, offer a “holistic approach to aging smart,” just as the Baby Boomer generation begins to reach retirement age. The authors artfully combine factual health and financial information with spiritual and inspirational suggestions (as seen in chapters like “Practice Optimism” and “Nurturing Your Soul”) to comprise a comprehensive strategy for getting the most out of your senior years. Incorporated into the text are the perspectives of aging experts, including psychologists, anthropologists and medical scientists. More interesting are the inspirational stories from successful and famous people–including Jimmy Carter and longtime Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown–who are still creative, energetic and productive at age 60, 70, even 80+. Readers will also benefit from the solid financial advice in the closing chapters, which include practical information on saving, investing taxes and more. Those in their middle and upper years will appreciate this upbeat guide to aging happily and healthily.”
