Summary
"'When I'm 64: the new retirement' is about what people think, feel and do in retirement in the twenty first century. Society views retirement as something to be celebrated, even envied, a time when you are finally free to do your own thing. But it also sees it as the end of the road, a time when you are on the outer, no longer of real significance. This book considers the subject from the point of view of those not yet retired, those newly retired, and those who are further down the track. What do people do with twenty or thirty years of life without the structures and restrictions of work? This book looks closely at some answers to this question, touching on previously uncharted territory in a personal and engaging way. Interviews with people in Australia, America, Canada, the UK, Japan, Malaysia and elsewhere, offer a window into the nature of the new retirement with all its contradictions and complexities - its upsides and downsides; its challenge to your sense of identity; the issues that arise whether you live alone or in a relationship; and the different ways people deal with this new phase of their lives."--Provided by publisher
