Our life span has been on the rise over the last two decades still, that has not enabled most of us to grey gracefully. Hardly, a few make a post-retirement plan for old age happiness. This volume is an outcome of several workshops and post-workshop interactions that the author, Dr Siddhartha Ganguli, had recently conducted through his brain-body management organisation Learning Club, deliberating on these aspects of an individual' life.

In preparation for retirement, we are often urged to build up our financial portfolio or perhaps down-size our home or move closer to family. Often neglected in this process, however, are the psychological ramifications that come with the transition into retirement. It is important for retirees to make a plan for their retirement financially, but also to take stock of their psychological portfolio at the same time. This means taking an honest look at how your sense of identity will change with retirement, how your relationships and support systems may change, and how your sense of purpose will be affected. Revitalizing Retirement gives unique guidance on how to create a happy, fulfilling retirement. Nancy K. Schlossberg, a counseling psychologist and author of Retire Smart, Retire Happy, describes the secret to a happy retirement. She encourages readers to reshape their identity, relationships, and purpose. She discusses several coping skills that deal with accepting change and help retirees continue to feel that they are vital members of their community and that they matter. Each chapter contains stories from actual retirees that demonstrate the numerous ways of pursuing an enjoyable retirement. There are short quizzes and discussion questions at the end of each chapter so that readers can reflect on what they have read and see exactly how it relates to their own lives. This book is a must-read for anyone considering retirement in the near future as well as current retirees who may be struggling to find happiness in their daily lives.

This important new book documents a major breakthrough in the treatment of the three most widespread learning disabilities--ADHD, dyslexia, and dyspraxia ("clumsy child syndrome"). Although these conditions have reached epidemic proportions, treatment has been limited to ineffective behavioral therapies or the controversial prescription drug Ritalin. Now Dr. B. Jacqueline Stordy, a leading researcher in the field, reveals a stunning new treatment based on a simple nutritional supplement: LCP (long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids). The LCP Solution is the first book to describe this new natural treatment and to explain how children (and adults) can incorporate it into their daily lives. As a member of a family with a long history of dyslexia, Dr. Stordy discovered in a pioneering experiment that dyslexic and dyspraxic children who began taking a dietary supplement consisting of LCP experienced dramatic transformations in the quality of their lives. At the same time, parallel studies conducted at Purdue University came up with similar results with children who had ADHD. The effect of this dietary supplement was nothing short of revolutionary: after only a few weeks, dyslexic and ADHD children became calmer, more focused, easier to teach, while dyspraxics improved significantly in dexterity and balance, showing markedly less anxiety. In The LCP Solution, Dr. Stordy documents how this life-changing treatment came about and explains step-by-step how sufferers of each of the three major conditions can use it to change their lives at home, at school, and at work. Illuminating, vividly presented, and authoritative in its findings, this book will revolutionize our approach to learning disabilities. LCPs are natural, simple to use, and amazing in their benefits. If you or someone you love suffers from a learning disability, this book is essential reading.
We face a lot of choices as we cross the threshold into the wide-open but sometimes-scary world of retirement. That's why some five years ago Tom Sightings started the blog, Sightings Over Sixty, which covers "health, finance, retirement, grown-up children and ... how time flies." He has now collected the best and brightest of the posts, adapted them and organized them into ten categories focused on retirement. The information and advice go beyond the obvious. The observations are amusing and a little offbeat. As Sydney Lagier of Retirement: A Full-Time Job says, "Sightings Over Sixty is my favorite blog. As a fellow retiree, I appreciate his often humorous take on retired life. And as a fellow writer I appreciate the wonderful writing." Sightings is a baby boomer, one of millions who are now starting to retire. Boomers are hitting their 60s. They will live longer than any previous generation and have 20, even 30 more years ahead of them. Some Type-B boomers may simply want to hang around home, read books, putter in the garden. And as Sightings says, "There's nothing wrong with that. You've earned it!" Those who are a little more wired might continue to work -- or volunteer, help raise grandchildren, hike the Pacific Crest Trail. As long as they have the energy, they'll just keep charging ahead. Welcome to the world of retirement. Remember, you only retire once, so you might as well do it right, and live long and prosper.
