The authors of this book acknowledge that older individuals today are generally healthier, more financially secure, and more independent than previous cohorts. They have therefore designed a book to help identify ways in which leisure might contribute positively to later life. Rather than leisure being seen as just a substitute for loss of activity engaged in earlier in life, the book espouses the proposition that leisure can provide new pathways for growth and development. The subtitle, Ulyssean Living in Later Life, reflects the idea that the elderly should be open to new ideas and opportunities just as Ulysses was when he embarked on his epic journeys of adventure in the later years of his life.
