The patient on the floor with cardiac arrest is the American economy, and close by are retirement plans, the futures and medical care of millions of older Americans.

However, according to Mary Lou Parks, RN, the author of "Taking the "E" Ride Through The Golden Years--What Can Boomers Expect?," and a gerontologist with considerable professional experience in caring for older Americans, there are many things we must do to lessen the pain in order to enjoy our Golden Years.

No matter how many birthdays you have in your future, you better read this book, particularly, if you are a Baby Boomer born after 1945.

This is Mary Lou's second book, and she minces few words in her exploration of the past, present and future of human care and retirement. What the headlines don't seem to understand is the current generation of those already retired and on the "E" ride in their journey, as she explains it, sometimes referred to as the "Silent Generation", could be the last for a while to have it so good. She describes in a very readable and caring way what we can do to help improve this picture.

Today, Boomers face critical events such as congressional stalemates on the reformation of our nation's healthcare system. We all face the loss or deterioration of programs depending upon the support of payrolls and jobs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

This book makes a loving present for the iPod generation to give their elders to wake them up, urging their parents to reject the blind death culture we have of not planning or talking about serious last illnesses, infirmities and death, and by making sure we at least make a Health Care Directive.
