Older and Wiser! is the inspiring new sequel to Older and Happier!, Dag Sebastian Ahlander’s joyful guide to turning retirement into a time of self-exploration. For many men, the years after sixty-five become the best of their livesand with good reason. The office is left behind, the children have grown up, and you’re healthy, alert, and free to do what you want. Still, as with any big life change, you may be looking for some words of advice and hope.
Older and Wiser! reflects on the big things in life and the little ones, and contains practical suggestions as well as reflections on aging from the world’s greatest philosophers, writers, and thinkers. With thoughts like You’re too old to die young,” You’ve retired from your job, not from life,” and Be careful when you spend more time at the pharmacy than at the wine store,” Mr. Ahlander guides older gentlemen along the golden years of retirement.
Baby Boomers are again defining a new age group, just as they once invented the modern understanding of the teenager. Now, they’re proving to the world that old age will have to wait. This is your time nowto accomplish what you’ve always dreamed of, to do the things you like best. Live as you want to be remembered and enjoy the journey.
