The Joy of Retirement
IN THIS SUMMARY
When people reach the age of 50 they begin to consider retirement and often assume that this means taking on a passive life style, simply sitting around at home or in a retirement community. In The Joy of Retirement, David C. Borchard and Patricia A. Donohoe redefine retirement in terms of making a decisive life change, which does not always mean the end of a person’s working career. Throughout the book, they ask thought-provoking questions designed to help older individuals determine what life vision they have for their golden years. They list activities that pertain to the various types of retiring persons and encourage readers to look deep within themselves in order to ensure that the last years of their life will be full of happiness, meaning, and fulfillment.
