Comments about Dr. Cooper and the book:
"Sherry Cooper is a dynamo - bright, savvy - and literally redefines the
way we view retirement and what lies ahead for us in this groundbreaking
Don Tapscott, bestselling author of Wikinomics
"As expected, the estimable economist Sherry Cooper provides sage
financial advice to baby boomers contemplating their retirement. But
surprise: she also draws from the latest literature in psychology and
gerontology to offer wise counsel on how boomers can live the second half
of their adult lives productively and in good health. Turns out we don't
have to be millionaires for the best years of our lives to be the ones
ahead of us."
Michael Adams, bestselling author and president of the Environics group
of research and communications consulting companies
"With her usual combination of trenchant analysis and creative insight,
Sherry Cooper draws a portrait that will redefine retirement and, indeed,
society as we have come to know it."
Allan Gregg, Chair, Harris/Decima Research
"As one would expect, Sherry's latest book is crisp, clear, focused, and
laser-like in its ability to answer the questions that all of us had
better start asking. The New Retirement offers just the kind of analysis
and insight that both informs us and jolts us into taking action."
