Book Description

Feb. 12 2010
This is where it all began. How and why the idea came to be, and how this book shares two titles. Both, "Boomers to Groomers" and "Sixty From The Sixties" are the same book but with titles reversed. It's all in how you look at it! A book about helping out the grandchildren's generation, (or the "Re-generation") and some much needed reassurances about the good life we all appreciate now more than ever before, but not by some drab self-help written text book. Instead, this book is best to be read on a relaxing afternoon near a sunny window. It is more like talking with a good friend than listening to a boring lecture. Once you start reading it, there is no doubt that it will be difficult to put down. The Baby Boomer has come of age. We are now the generation the newest generation will look up to. We have come to the head of the line, we ARE the older generation. Hopefully, many already or will enjoy a time in our lives when we get a chance to spend some with our grandchildren. The magical bond that only exists between Grandparent and Grandchild is a wonderful opportunity to open their world to things that can have a positive affect on their lives. With so many words being redefined everyday, Groomer has joined that list. Groomer has naturally developed a double meaning; first as an abbreviation of the natural progression from Baby Boomer to GRandparent bOOMER then GRand bOOMER and finally GROOMER and second as someone who inspires and grooms the youngest generation with wisdom and memories of a quality of life that, once again, may be realized. Without our patience and understanding, they will never know any of the wonderful things that truly matter. If we do not show them, how can our children show them, they tuned us out a long time ago. Rebuilding morals and values that seem to have crumbled with time is first and foremost, remembering the life we still live inside is paramount but keeping our sense of humor is what really matters. That is why this book is so enjoyable. With humor, determination and always looking for the brighter side of things to come, this book is one that you will enjoy. When the author seems to get off the track, go for a ride together, it'll be fun! "If we are not instrumental in the rejuvenation of the elements which can make the quality of everyone's life better, then we are not living up to the reputation that has become the icon of our generation!" Stephen LeBar

Product Description

About the Author

I grew up across the river from Manhattan in the early fifties, in the city of Newark, New Jersey. I have always been interested in what is happening in the world around me as well as away from me. I can say that I have never been someone who readily accepts the facts at face value, and I do not believe that I am alone in this respect. After sixty amazing years, somehow, I can still remember the humor, happiness and peace of mind that we all enjoyed and I re-live it everyday through the curiosity and honesty of the youngest generation today and especially my Grandson. In my book, I offer my take on the whole picture as I see it. It would be impossible to do so without getting that warm, fuzzy feeling at some points along the way, a good thing. Given that we are part of a very large group, worldwide, at the same juncture in our lives and with similar circumstances, I review the past that has shaped us and propose the future that, hopefully, will come. If we are instrumental in the rejuvenation of the elements which we all grew up with and valued, then we can make the quality of everyone's life better, especially those of the youngest generation. If we are not, then we are not living up to the reputation that has become the icon of our generation. I am terminally optimistic and perpetually seeing the lighter side of things. Maybe I missed my calling to have been a standup comedian. I once heard an Uncle suggest that to me when I was young. Could you really make a living being funny? Who knew?
