Time to reinvent retirement! The best is yet to come for Boomer men, says researcher and author Thelma Reese.

Retirement and aging expert Thelma Reese says many retired men’s identities have been so tied to what they did for a living, that they lost their sense of self once they stopped working. And this has often led to depression, boredom, marital strife and ill health. "Men deserve a better road map for navigating the rest of the journey—and getting the most out of this next phase of their lives." She offers inspiring stories of men from all walks of life who are redefining retirement.
