Reviews - What do customers think about Purpose And Power In Retirement (PB)?

Inspiration, informative, fascinating  Dec 25, 2003
As a person getting ready to retire, this is a treasure trove of practical information that has been very helpful. Not only is it informative, it is also inspirational and a fast and easy read.
Restating Earlier Books and Falling into the "culture trap"  Nov 14, 2003
Koenig has certainly made great contributions to the field of spirituality and aging. That makes this book even more disappointing. He does warn the reader that he is of the judeao-Christian tradition and in this publication makes some token statements about cultural and religious diversity. Even these are disappointing because they seem disparate in subject and give the appearance of bing hastily added. I also believe that he falls into the trap of "prescribing" what "successful retirement' looks like. I also thought his identification of the philanthropist, who funds his publisher, as the most generous person he knows a bit too much

His "Spirituality in Patient Care" is alot better. For a good read on culture trap ty "Learning to be Old: Gender, Culture, and Aging" by Margaret Cruikshank. It is harsh but reallly makes you think.

On reaping the most out of our retirement years  Jan 3, 2003
Purpose And Power In Retirement: New Opportunities For Meaning And Significance by Harold G. Koenig (Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Associate Professor of Medicine at Duke University Medical Center) is a straightforward, "reader friendly" guide that dispels common retirement myths, and offers invaluable, practical advice for making the most of one's "golden years", including reaping the benefits of volunteering, learning to live healthy for a better quality of life, reducing personal stress, and more. An excellent and very highly recommended instructional and reference guide to reaping the most out of our retirement years, Purpose And Power In Retirement should be a part of every community library Retirement Preparation and Personal Growth collection.
