|Schofield’s game changing book about successfully navigating life after 50 is available to readers on October 4, 2012 through Amazon.com
LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla., Oct. 4, 2012 – According to author George H. Schofield, PhD, people over 50 are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities: getting older, living longer, redefining retirement, and navigating change in a chaotic world. Challenges include having enough money, working for many more years than planned, taking care of elderly parents, living with adult children, and creating a great life after 50.
According to Schofield, there will be 77 million people over 50 in the United States by 2015. This represents 27% of the total population. By 2030, the number of people over 65 will double to about 71.5 million people.
“After 50 It’s Up To Us, Developing The Skills and Agility We’ll Need” gives people over 50 the tools they need to create their best possible lives, reach their goals and dreams faster, enjoy great relationships, and get ready for the future, even when life doesn’t go according to plan.
According to Schofield, the book offers people a revolutionary learning framework with exercises, reflections, and real life examples which are designed to help people over 50 create their best possible futures.
Schofield reminds readers that their personal identities have been driven by circumstances (roles, family, work, achievement, etc), and shows how this identity needs to change as they move into their 50s and beyond. He has also created a new vocabulary to help people over 50 understand and deal with the transitions they are certain to face while getting older.
“After 50 It’s Up To Us, Developing The Skills and Agility We’ll Need” is based on Schofield’s experience and expertise in aging, psychology, lifelong learning, human development, and interviews with people ages 50 to 97.
