Joan Fitting Scott is the author of Skinning the Cat: A Baby Boomer's Guide to the New Retiree Lifestyles.

Background Information

Starting in January, 2006, every eight seconds a baby boomer will celebrate a sixtieth birthday and contemplate the days ahead. That's eleven thousand people daily or four and a half million a year. What will these new 60 year-olds, the leading edge of a 78 million-member generation, do next? Will they pick up their golf clubs and head to the age-segregated links, as did Dad? Or choose a path more in keeping with the boomer character? After all, this is the generation of sex, drugs and marching in the streets. Award-winning writer Joan Fitting Scott, who specializes in baby boomer issues, wanted to answer the question. Skinning the Cat: A Baby Boomer's Guide to the New Retiree Lifestyles is the result of her extensive research, including interviews with dozens of baby boomers. Scott offers a look at boomers' trailblazing idea of retirement. Her book provides cutting-edge options for life's second act, whether that means continuing full-time work, not working, working part-time or cyclically. Also covered are options like returning to school, philanthropy, travel and sabbaticals. Personal examples shed light on all these choices. The book also offers resources for making lifestyle decisions from among myriad choices.
