On the mark

I have spent a lot of time considering the subjects that Ken Dychtwald so appropriately summarizes in his new book. I have spent my career in the financial services industry. I find his conclusions and advice to be on the mark. If you are concerned about or interested in the aging process (how it impacts your own life, your investments and your family) as well as the paradigm shifts that have occurred from times when wealth, longevity and health were significantly different) this book should be of significant assistance. In addition, the book is written in an easy to read, conversational style.

A MUST read

After reading this book, I feel like a kid again - like I can do anything with my life. Dychtwald and Kadlec have inspired me to think about how I REALLY want to spend the rest of my years. I don't know if I'll be joining the Peace Corps anytime soon, but I'd love to give back by volunteering locally. I've also started thinking about taking some art classes. This book is for anyone who wants to get their creative juices flowing and be inspired to "mix it up" a bit.

A Must Read....

"The Power Years" is an incredible book that really opened my eyes to the myriad of possibilities available in later life. Why not travel the world? Learn a new skill? Start a completely new career? The real-life examples were particularly inspiring, as was the "Leaving a Legacy" chapter. Highly recommended for anyone over 40!!!

The Power Years NOT just for boomers

My wife and I just finished reading (together) Ken Dychtwald and Daniel Kadlec's new book The Power Years. I started reading it and was so entertained by many of the anecdotes and insights that my wife got sick of hearing me, so we took turns reading it each night. It soon became the centerpiece of our morning coffee talk (between strapping up our youngest daughters diaper and doing 3 rounds of pony tails for the 4 year old.) So much of what the book discusses is what I believe Gen Xers (perhaps even more than Boomers) want and seek from life, the power to have flexibilty. Spending time with family while also having a successful career; refining our talents while exploring new skills; forging new relationships while remaining committed to the ones we have; making the most of the precious things we own and keeping our desires (and debt) real not material. Most importantly, Dychtwald and Kadlec offer REAL insights and strategies on how to achieve your dreams in a funny, personal and VERY readable context. I HIGHLY recommed this book and it will be even more enjoyable when read with your partner, friend, or whomever you have that first cup of coffe with.

Power Years Has the Right Stuff

Dychwald's Power Years is a first rate, highly informative and immensely important book for anyone who intends on thriving in retirement. As a futurist I am always trying to get people to think more intelligently about predicting their future--this book does an excellent job at getting that important message out. Dychtwald has provided a clear set of suggestions that anyone can follow in preparing today to meet the retirement challenges of their future. I have personally gained from this book's insight and will take action to better my future--I strongly recommend you do the same. James Canton
