There are lots of words written about retirement but few as warm, wise and helpful as those in Getting Old Is A Full Time Job: Moving On From a Life of Working Hard. Susan Lieberman does not pretend that aging is always sweetness and light, but with 18 additional years added to the average life span, we are offered a second adulthood. Here is insight into 12 jobs awaiting us as we cross the bridge from work to what s next. Along the way, Lieberman explores opportunities to become more fully ourselves, with joy, release and revitalization. Practical and light-hearted, the book has been described as both an invaluable guide and an enormous gift.

Review:

Susan-- I really enjoyed the book and felt I learned a lot from it. I also really like the concept-- I think more men will read this one than some of the others in this subject area, as it gives us jobs, which many of us like. Dick Goldberg National Director Coming of Age --Dick Goldberg, National Director, Coming of Age

Getting Old is a fine book. Crisp, well-written, practical, and wise.....can't get better than that. --James Hollis, Ph.D., analyst and former director of the Jung Center of Houston

Susan Lieberman has written the perfect handbook for those contemplating retirement, already retired or simply getting older. The book discusses pertinent topics and issues with easy-to-understand language and keen insight. It made me re-think certain aspects of my life, as well as provide a checklist of items that need follow-up. I have recommended the book to many of my friends. --Sandy Wotiz, retired attorney
