Former Senior Writer and editor of People magazine, Bruce Frankel stops in to share inspirational stories from his newly released book, "What Should I Do With The Rest of My Life". In his book Bruce discovered average people of all ages and backgrounds who found their passion after the age of 60, and are now living active, successful, and extraordinary lives. Bruce also went through his own personal transformation at the age of 51, after serving for several years as the New York-based national reporter for USA TODAY, where he covered terrorism, organized crime, major trials and politics. From co-author in 2001 of the New York Times best seller, "LIFE: World War 2", to a prize-winning investigative reporter for Gannett Westchester Newspapers, Bruce's background is impressive to say the least. Caroline Leavitt's Boston Globe review of "What Should I Do with the Rest of My Life": Sometimes the pursuit of happiness can feel like a rat race, but a spate of new books can show you better routes to finding your bliss. Journalist Bruce Frankel’s “What Should I Do With the Rest of My Life?’’ ebulliently argues that joy doesn’t have an expiration date. At 53, Frankel got his master’s degree in fine arts and went on to become a poet, and his book is filled with inspiring stories of after-60 successes. From an 89-year-old psychologist to an 87-year-old woman who became America’s oldest park ranger, the stories celebrate people who refused to let illness, stereotypes, and assumptions about aging stop them from realizing their dreams. Our brains are plastic and can change at any age, studies show, and working longer and having a purpose not only can have a profound impact on happiness but can make you feel as if you’ve tapped into a fountain of youth. Even better, this wise and inspiring book hands down an important message: Happiness is abundant at any age, and only you can limit your options.
