Alive and Kicking is an engaging, even entertaining and uplifting, book about a subject most of us who are getting on in life often avoid: arranging our affairs for our latter years to avoid medical, financial, and legal troubles. I will use it myself and recommend it to patients, friends, and loved ones. --Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging
The best way one can prevent themselves from becoming a burden on their families as they age is making sure the money they saved for their retirement stays saved for retirement and is only used for that purpose. Alive and Kicking: Legal Advice for Boomers grants legal advice so you can keep your money so when you finally do go and kick that bucket, your family has something other than massive debts to remember you by. Tips on living wills, scams and identity theft, caring for your own parents in your own advanced age, issues involving age discrimination, driving, sex, and more are covered. While treating itself as a law book first, Alive and Kicking: Legal Advice for Boomers isn't afraid to crack a joke or bust out a poem now and again, giving a different and attractive flavor, making it highly recommended for anyone who is rapidly approaching retirement age and wants to be prepared for it in the modern world. Also recommended to community library law shelves. --The Midwest Book Review
An encyclopedic legal reference with the down-home philosophy and wit of a Will Rogers. Astoundingly exhaustive in its range of subjects, the book provides accurate, to-the-point legal advice wryly enriched by poetry, humor, and existential musings. --Charles Sabatino, principal author, American Bar Association s Legal Guide for Older Americans
