  1. I'm New at Being Old

    I'm New at Being Old


    I’m New at Being Old is a picture book for women. Offering wit, whimsy and vibrantly fanciful art, Lucy Rose Fischer captures the essence of what it feels like to be “new at being old.” At first, she wonders: Is she ready for this journey toward an “alien universe”? She frets about what might happen to her—the “breakdown of movable parts” and, possibly, the “unraveling of my mind.” But she also celebrates her vitality, creativity, and “richness of years.” She comes to understand that she is joining a burgeoning sisterhood and that her new life is just beginning.

    Women of the Baby Boom generation will recognize themselves in I’m New at Being Old and draw inspiration and courage from this honest and engaging book. Learn More Add to Wishlist

  2. The Best of Our Lives

    The Best of Our Lives


    Are you ready for the best of YOUR life?

    Attention Baby Boomers!

    Have you wondered what you want to be when you retire? Where you want to live? And how to do it all? In The Best of Our Lives: Sharing the Secrets of a Healthy and Happy Retired Life, authors Trisha and John Parker, a married couple going through the retirement process themselves, present current research, expert advice, and personal insights into the joys and challenges of retired life.

    The Parkers provide useful professional recommendations along with their unique solutions, suggestions, and experiences regarding topics such as managing retirement finances, attaining mental and physical health, planning budget travel, starting second careers, and making a home safe for the retirement years. Several helpful original checklists and forms are included to assist the reader in making an informed and painless transition to retired life.

    Written in an honest and conversational style, The Best of Our Lives reflects the authors’ passion for life, family, and friends.

    "An extremely well-written, understandable, and comprehensive book on organizing and managing your retired life in an increasingly complicated world. The practical advice on mental and physical fitness, as well as nutrition, makes this an essential reference book for today’s seniors."--Herbert M. Schub, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine

    "I’ve had the good fortune to travel with the Parkers who are, in the classic formulation, boon companions. The travel chapter alone is so laden with useful (and often overlooked) money-saving tips, a single trip would likely save many times the cost of the book. I make this recommendation from a background of a quarter-century of ownership of a chain of Chicago travel agencies and as travel editor for ABC Radio, San Francisco. The Parkers know how to enjoy life!"--Lee Rodgers, ABC/San Francisco Learn More Add to Wishlist
