Recommendation

Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager, and geriatric psychologist Morton Shaevitz combine their impressive talents and admirable ideas to explain how older people can use the principles of “refiring” to infuse their senior years with zest. This accessible parable offers sensible, helpful ideas for readers, old and young, who want to get more out of life. The story may seem somewhat saccharine in places, but perhaps that’s unavoidable fallout from its stated mission: to share ideas that can bring positive change into people’s lives, organizations and society. getAbstract recommends the authors’ practical, spiritual and easily applicable approach to anyone seeking a richer, more engaged existence.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to reinvigorate yourself by “refiring” your zest for living;
  • How refiring addresses your “heart, head, body and soul”; and
  • How to help others refire.
