Your Next Chapter

Our latest book, The Retirement Boom: An All Inclusive Guide to Money, Life, and Health for Your Next Chapter is available on and and in bookstores everywhere!  It is packed with expert advice, insight, stories, exercises and more on all aspects of thinking and planning a robust next chapter.  Published by Career Press.

Baby Boomers (76 million!) have not always done things conventionally, and now they are breaking new ground in the way they are “retiring.” It’s not their grandfathers’ or even parents’ retirement. It could be thirty years long! But, the path is not always clear. Longer lives, financial strain, lots of opportunities, multi-generational issues, health challenges, and more create the need for everyone to have a good plan for their next life chapter.

For anyone thinking of retiring and changing their lives, this is the book for you.
— Billy Crystal, Actor, Comedian, and Grandfather

THE RETIREMENT BOOM is a book by Baby Boomers for Baby Boomers about the transition into a new phase of life—not to retire, but to reboot and reinvent. It’s about actually designing the next chapter the way they want it. The book recognizes that people want relevance, fulfillment, identity, and self-esteem. And it recognizes what they fear, including financial inadequacy. The book is much more than finances, though — it’s about life.

These topics and more are covered in THE RETIREMENT BOOM:

  • How to plan for the life you want
  • Creative and fulfilling use of your time
  • How to keep making money and other ways to make your money last
  • Ways to improve your health
  • Where’s the IT desk? and other challenges
  • Changes at home
  • Sandwich Generation issues — caring for parents and grown children
  • Building and leaving your legacy
  • Simplifying your life and living a life of passion

In writing this book, the co-authors — Catherine Allen, Nancy Bearg, Rita Foley, and Jaye Smith — did extensive research, interviewed hundreds of individuals, and talked to many corporations. They also drew on their own experiences and the experiences of attendees at their Reboot Your Life Retreats.

The book is a road map for each person to design and plan what’s next. It is full of practical information, insight, helpful stories, exercises in every chapter, new ideas, and a robust appendix.

Note: The Retirement Boom replaces our book Revolutionary Retirement

The book includes real-life stories and exercises to help the reader figure out how to plan for and take a sabbatical, or how to use unexpected time off.

More Americans are choosing to take time off from work to relax or re-examine their priorities, so they can return to work energized. Many companies offer formal sabbatical programs, but how can the average person take time off to evaluate their direction, explore their passions, and make time for the things that are really important? Whether you’re disillusioned with your career, yearning to follow a dream, or taking time out after a layoff, now is the time to step back and reboot. This book will show you how you can give yourself the best gift ever–the gift of time. People who take sabbaticals report feeling happier, and they return to their jobs refreshed, reinvigorated, and ready to tackle new challenges.
Reboot Your Life draws upon the experiences of the four authors and their interview subjects: 200 people who have taken sabbaticals and 150 organizations offering sabbatical programs. The book includes real-life stories and exercises to help the reader figure out how to plan for and take a sabbatical, or how to use unexpected time off caused by job loss.

A JOURNAL FOR INSPIRATION is available on and

In response to overwhelming requests from our readers and retreat participants, we published A JOURNAL FOR INSPIRATION. With one specially chosen quote from our personal collection on each page, the journal offers a place for readers to both reflect on their journeys and find inspiration along the way. It perfectly complements the process of reading REBOOT YOUR LIFE and is a great way to start thinking and planning with THE RETIREMENT BOOM – also, a great stocking stuffer or inexpensive but loving gift to a friend, family-member, or colleague!
