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.
When we have more time to spend on what’s important to us rather than what is important to others, Getting Old Is A Full Time Job recommends exploring the work of: Strategist, Script Writer/Editor, Director of Physical Planning, Training and Development Manager, Residential Relocation Expert, Pain Consultant, Office Manager, Money Manager, Relationship Coach, Demolition Expert, Purveyor of Pleasure, and Soul Catcher, to name a few.
What People are Saying
[quote]I’ve just finished reading Getting Old Is A Full TIme Job. It is, in my opinion, one of most readable, wise, sincere, direct and useful books on the changes, challenges, and transitions that often come into many, actually most, of our lives. Reading the book is like having a personal conversation with the author— the reader can easily say, ‘she’s talking to me.’[/quote]
