By Geraldine TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 31 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent guide to reinventing yourself after 50, if working is part of your overall plans.
I was really impressed with the work that went into this guide, author Nancy Collamer did a better than average job with this book.

Some of the (detailed) suggestions she brought up about second act careers I was already aware of, but many were new and very helpful too. For example, choosing to work on a seasonal basis in later life is a great idea but one I honestly had never really thought about before reading this book.

I also appreciated the many true life stories/interviews in this guide, that really set it apart from other career manuals I have read for the over 50 crowd. They were interesting and encouraging. I found myself highlighting many a page and web link as I read along and that is always a good sign, knowing that i will actually come back to USE a particular passage, not just forget about it when I've finished the book.

Highly recommended, especially if you had given up hope of ever finding work in your later years. This guide will encourage,inspire and give you many many ideas for what can be next, career-wise.

Life can keep getting better! Thanks Nancy. :-)

Geared to US readers, this book still manages to get the soon to be "retired" person to think about possibilities for his/her next phase of employment. Lots of links and ideas to mull through. A valuable use of your time, even if you skim through the parts that aren't so applicable to you.
