In Master Class, author Peter Spiers shows the 78 million Baby Boomers in the United States how to “live longer, stronger and happier.”
Spiers is the Senior Vice President of Road Scholar, and interviewed many members of that organization as part of his research for this book. Comments from interviewees are included throughout the book.
The premise of the entire book is based on four simple ideas as the elements of the “Master Life:” “socializing, moving, thinking and creating.”
In the first part of the book, Spiers explains the “master life” theory and expounds on the four elements as mentioned above. The remaining four sections helps the reader create their own Master Life. The reader completes assignments for each of the four elements. At the end of each section, the reader takes a final exam.
The ideas in this book are inspiring and exciting and I’m ready to embark on a journey to “live longer, stronger and happier.” Every baby boomer should read this book, keep it close at hand for reference, and implement this program in their life.
Master Class: Living Longer, Stronger and Happierwill publish on June 26, 2012.
