Launch Your Encore Finding Adventure and Purpose Later in Life by: Hans Finzel, Rick Hicks
A lot of our society in the United States is bent towards staying young. We have creams, potions, foods to eat or not eat, exercising, and even having surgeries.
In Launch Your Encore, Finzel and Hicks believe that just because a person ages does not mean that their usefulness diminshes. In fact, they would suggest that a "second career" should take place.
They show that maturity is greatly needed today and that such people should take the initiative to find adventure and to live with purpose in the later stages of life.
What I liked about this book is that getting older is not something to fear but rather be enjoyed and then shared with the next generation. Would more seasoned people take this approach I believe our society would greatly benefit.
