In one of the most significant social trends of the new century, and the biggest transformation of the American workforce since the women's movement, members of the baby boom generation are inventing a new phase of work.

Encore tells the stories of encore career pioneers who are not content, or affluent enough, to spend their next 30 years on a golf course. These men and women are moving beyond midlife careers yet refusing to phase out or fade away. As they search for a calling in the second half of life and focus on what matters most, these individuals stand to transform the nature of work in America. They also hold the potential to create a society that balances the joys and responsibilities of contribution across the generations - in other words, one that works better for all of us.

    " Book is overly focused on ideas of the late Peter Drucker. Introduces concept of a "Third Age" career shift, but then repeats this idea over and over. Introduces but does not clearly explain career of "social entrepreneurship." Good online references for retired job seekers in last section of text. "

    " Kind of a tedious do-gooder book about finding fulfilment in second, post-midlife careers. The theme is the statisfactions of moving from a life of success to one of significance, through socially beneficial work. What if one is more interested in reversing the trend? "

    " This was a great book for all of us 'boomers' trying to figure out what's next in our lives. It presents a wonderful vision of our generation returning to our roots of trying to make a difference in the world, but this time with more financial backing, wisdom, experience and time! "
