You Only Retire Once: A Baby Boomer Looks at Health, Finance, Retirement, Grown-Up Children ... and How Time Flies by Tom Sightings
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


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.

Author Biography

Tom Sightings is a baby boomer, part of the pig-in-a-python demographic group that has brought so many changes to America - and will continue to do so until they cash their last Social Security check. Sightings had a typical baby boomer career. He graduated from college, went to business school, worked for several companies, then in his mid-50s was unceremoniously laid off. Meanwhile he got divorced, and his two kids left for college. Now he lives with his significant other, Bee, who has two children of her own. They live in the New York area, a convenient stopover for their four peripatetic 20-somethings. He writes and produces Sightings Over Sixty which covers health, finance, retirement -- and all the concerns of people who realize that somehow they have grown up.
