A social worker from New England . . . a Texas airline pilot . . . a homemaker from California . . . a lawyer who has lived everywhere . . . a quilter in Oregon. What do they have in common? All are on the adventure of their lives.

Like many others among the 77 million baby boomers, these men and women don't want to retire from contributing when they retire from their careers. So they are using their time, skills, and resources to make a difference. Written in conjunction with Finishers Project, an umbrella organization that encompasses more than 100 mission organizations, this book will help baby boomers discover a second-half adventure that fits them and counts for eternity.
My Take
This isn’t your typical book about retirement.  This book address the human side of things, it gets to the heart of the matter and the person.  I found this book to be a good read and interesting.  It made me think and reconsider how I originally thought about retirement.  Although, I am not currently at the age of retirement, it never hurts to think about it and make plans.  This book is not for you if you are looking for help in planning your retirement financially etc.  This book is written from a more spiritual standpoint and is about living a full and fulfilling retirement.  I enjoyed this book and will keep it on my bookshelf for when I can finally look forward to retirement.
