3.0 out of 5 stars Building the Boomer library, July 20, 2007
This review is from: Leap!: What Will We Do with the Rest of Our Lives? (Hardcover)
Sigh! what a great idea for a book and what a huge disappointment. Did EVERYONE from the 60s wind up living in Aspen,inventing pagan "rituals" for post-menopausal friends, hawking overpriced vitamins, selling "alternative health modalities" to the very rich or having a "pick me up" face lift/boob job? What's with all of these self-indulgent, narcissistic publications...."eat,pray and love", "leap", etc. It's amazing that people like the author who admit to "not really being into politics" during the anti-war movement and "not really going all that deeply into spirituality" during the time so many teachers came from the East and "not living in a commune" during the whole hippie era, suddenly becomes an "expert" on that same era from her overpriced New York apartment. God save us from the coming flood of these books. I shudder to think what we're in for. More power to Jane Fonda for at least attempting to think about something other than herself in her old age. I would love to have heard something from people who are struggling with the issues most folks are facing in their "golden years"...something other than, "how can I get people to still pay attention to ME!!" It's hard to "Leap" when you are living on social security.
