Summary: Bill Novelli doesn't believe that retirement has to mean rocking one's way into the sunset. As the head of the AARP, Novelli believes that retirement can be a time of action and influence rather than one of illness and decline. Here he speaks to the growing number of Americans age 50 and older about what they can do to shape the national debate about aging and influence government policy towards retirees. And the tide of change is potentially enormous: when the Baby Boomer generation ages to the 50- year mark, they will create the largest group of retirees in the history of the country, solidifying a powerful constituency for major change in ways beneficial to the entire nation. Novelli believes that this group is capable of just about anything.--From publisher description
