I'm Not Goin' There! Cover

-- All books are important, at least to their authors. My book, I'm Not Goin' There! is important because it addresses an immediate, pressing and potentially devastating problem faced by boomers: how to successfully manage the aging process to sync with their teenage declaration "We'll never get old." Boomers meant it then and mean it now but most have no idea what it takes to achieve their goal.
Boomers know they are aging but insist they are different -- they will defy old age. Their intention is valid but they don't know how to turn that intention into reality because old age is something that must be experienced in order to understand and avoid the lures, traps and pitfalls that lead to decline.
Most boomers declare their retirement will be different from their parents and grandparents, and for many, that will be true to the extent that their lifestyle will be different -- at least, for a couple of years. After the "retirement honeymoon" dissipates and reality sets in, they will be living their parent's traditional retired lifestyle. It takes an extraordinary amount of preplanning and awareness of what's really ahead to avoid it because tradition and the culture are skewed toward the traditional retired mindset and lifestyle. It's difficult to avoid doing what everybody else is doing or is expected.
At 83, I've been where boomers are now. I've seen and experienced the lures, traps and pitfalls boomers need to avoid if they want to achieve their intention to "never get old". ("Getting old" has nothing to do with the passage of time -- it's a choice -- something allowed to happen by default.) I've beaten the babushka off of Mother Time and boomers can do it too, if they take seriously my experience and advice.
authors, usually not yet "old," give all kinds of advice about aging, but the only advice of real value is based in experience and can be replicated by readers. To that end, my book, I'm Not Goin' There! is important because it offers real world advice and workable solutions for boomers who insist they will never get old.
Available on Amazon and other readers for $1.99. I am literally giving away my priceless knowledge and advice because I believe every woman deserves more in her "golden years" than decline and regret about what might have been.
