In a world that has gone from 9-5 to 24/7 in a generation, our ability to lead a professionally productive yet reflective life is increasingly challenged. A time of professional disengagement offered by a sabbatical is invaluable. The chance to cultivate personal interests and family and friends free of the demands of the office and Blackberry leads to a richer life and thereby a refreshed perspective when returning to work. These four writers understand this and offer wise counsel. Take their advice and take a sabbatical. –Peter H. Darrow, Senior Counsel, Cleary Gottlieb Steen and Hamilton
THE RETIREMENT BOOM is both down-to-earth and also future-focused—practical as well as aspirational, the hallmark characteristics of the Boomers as a generation. This book fits the moment we’re in. It is what we need, exactly when we need it. We are in a time of change and opportunity, a time of personal reinvention and social revolution. In other words, it’s a great time for discovery, innovation and self-imagination. It’s a great time to get to work! –Alan Webber, Co-Founder of Fast Company Magazine and Co-Author of Life Reimagined: Discovering Your New Life Possibilities
