The helpful information in the Handbook for Boomers comes from author Franklin Ross Jones's personal experience, original research, and teaching on human development that is relevant to the lives of the baby boomer generation. The Boomer designation encompasses anyone born in the United States between 1946 and 1964, a group that has seventy-seven million members living today!
The most salient features of Handbook for Boomers are those that most Boomers are likely to need at some time in their lives. Whether it's advice about marriage, health, divorce, work, or caring for our parents, Boomers who may not have the time, wherewithal, or knowledge of where to turn for assistance in resolving these problems can find their answers here. Jones offers a discussion of the current status of the Boomer generation by reviewing their cultural circumstances, longevity prospects, societal expectations, and developmental tasks. Addressing stress, health, love, sex, recreation, caring for parents, second marriages, second careers, and how to live the good life, this guidebook offers a comprehensive overview of the issues facing Boomers today.
