Taking the reader from early history to the information age, Nickerson points out why some work habits we have followed for years bear re-examination in light of an older yet healthier population that can contribute greatly to our country's growth.
Each chapter focuses on one area which requires a fresh view, from reasons to repeal the age discrimination act to tips for boomers, both workers and job seekers.
This easy to read book is an important addition to the dialogue, just warming up, about the creative role that makes the term, the "Golden Years", referring to older citizens, as old fashioned as a black & white television set.
The largest population group in America is aging into retirement years, what does that mean for the economy, the workplace and the next generations.
Cash Nickerson asks probing questions and offers a conversation starter for employers, employees and the country.
The book flows well and provides documentation and sources for further study at the end of each chapter.
Cash does a great job discussing the challenges that surround this aging working population and puts forth ideas on how we can help them transition into retirement gradually. He addresses the attitudes, biases, and laws that need to change in the workplace. He suggests a true phase out approach that provides flexibility to this population. He does an incredible job pointing out what this population means to the current workplace and how the sudden loss will affect our economy and future generations.
The is an important book to read that will change the way you look at your retirement and the people you work with.
My message is this simple: BOOMRangs is not just for those already in their mid 60's or beyond -- it is for anyone contemplating their own tomorrow. At 42 I found the book to be directed as much at Generation X as it is to any I am inspired by Mr. Nickerson's research and method, and I think other readers will be too. An encouraging and value-added read that I highly recommend!
