An estimated seventy-eight million baby boomers will hit retirement age in the coming decades. It’s an exciting time, but many retirees miscalculate their retirement readiness before leaving their jobs and seeking a more carefree life. In Don’t Eat Dog Food When You’re Old! author Roger Roemmich—who has more than forty years experience in the field of finance—presents a big-picture look at what you need to know to plan for your retirement or to better manage the various components of your financial life if you already are retired. In this guide Roemmich first looks at whether you can afford to retire and then discusses retirement planning and financial management. He introduces his unique CAMP score methodology—considering cash flow, aging, medical needs, and purchasing power—that both provides a basis for quick evaluation of retirement readiness and serves to identify remedies for inadequacies. He also identifies the most important aspects of six key areas and helps show how they factor into having excellent cash flow throughout retirement. You can calculate your retirement readiness accurately if you know the right questions to ask. Roemmich’s guide—which assumes little or no prior knowledge but a keen interest in doing the right thing—helps you move forward carefully and confidently so that you can enjoy financial peace of mind during your golden years.

No-nonsense, wryly self-deprecating, and totally persuasive, You're Old, I'm Old...Get Used to It! unabashedly exalts the virtues of aging. Virginia Ironside wants you to know that getting old is a good thing-and not in that dreadful “sixty is the new forty” way. At sixty-five, she has no interest in pretending to be young and neither should you. Virginia celebrates all the “issues” that she and her fellow oldies embrace, including: • Talking about ailments (and the fabulous meds that come with them) • Grandchildren (the reward you get for not killing your children) • Wisdom (random disorganized knowledge you get to put a fancy label on because you're old)

Publisher: Quid Pro Books
Named 12/1/2014 by the Wall Street Journal as one of year's six "best books on making the most of later life," Cicero's classic On Old Age is now adapted, explained, and updated to today's world. “Getting old is not for sissies”: the mortal words of Bette Davis. And somewhat the theme of Marcus Tullius Cicero's On Old Age. Except that Cicero did not believe in denying aging or hiding its effects. What he believed has been passed on for generations and still speaks to a modern world. Now De Senectute can be read with a real understanding of it, explained and presented to the contemporary reader. Adapted by Richard Gerberding, a retired professor of history and director of Classical Studies at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, Cicero's essay makes sense and is lively and witty. More than sixty clever illustrations by Lance Rossi add to the enjoyment. Part of the Journeys & Memoirs Series from Quid Pro Books. Also available in new paperback and hardcover editions.

Their voices are set in the context of what literature, art, religion and medicine over the centuries have said about ageing. The result is an acclaimed and compelling reflection on an inevitable aspect of our human experience.

Author: Winston Graham
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Set in the last years of Elizabeth I's reign, Winston Graham's The Grove of Eagles seamlessly blends historical fact and fiction in a rich tale full of unforgettable characters. In 1588 the Spanish Armada had been defeated in the English Channel and the whole of Elizabethan England was alert for the revenge that surely had to follow. On the Cornish coast, men like John Killigrew - in charge of the castle at Pendennis - were vital to the survival of the country, and on their backs rested the trust of those defending the nation. His eldest but base-born son, Maugan, emerges in the novel, through his loneliness and his love, as a touchingly honest and believable character who is, above all things, a man of his word.
That's your first mistake. Don't let it get you down or you'll have everyone

Old Path White Clouds presents the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha. Drawn directly from 24 Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese sources, and retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in his inimitably beautiful style, this book traces the Buddha's life slowly and gently over the course of 80 years, partly through the eyes of Svasti, the buffalo boy, and partly through the eyes of the Buddha himself. Old Path White Clouds is destined to become a classic of religious literature. Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk. His life long efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King, Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. He is the founder of Van Hanh Buddhist University in Saigon, and has taught at Columbia University and the Sorbonne. He is the author of Being Peace, The Miracle of Mindfulness, Peace Is Every Step, and 75 other books. ''I have not avoided including the various difficulties the Buddha encountered, both from his own disciples and in relation to the wider society. If the Buddha appears in this hook as a man close to us, it is partly due to recounting such difficulties.'' --from the author's afterword
