Barbara Morris, 85-year-old pharmacist and anti-aging author is not shy about stating her beliefs about anything. She is especially critical of traditional retirement,

calling it a "toxic " lifestyle because she believes it contributes to premature decline. She wants boomers and new retirees, particularly women, to avoid that disaster and instead, enjoy a non-traditional vibrant and youthful rock-star second life.

As an alternative to traditional leisure oriented retirement Ms. Morris is promoting balanced lifelong growth and productivity as a preferred lifestyle choice. She points out that the lifespan has increased by 30 years and many retirees are enduring those "bonus" years in poor health and are financially impoverished because they chose a retirement lifestyle that no longer makes sense.

To help boomers nearing retirement as well as new retirees have a more fulfilling second life, Ms. Morris is giving away a free copy of her new book: The Expert's Guide To Strut Your Stuff: How Boomers and New Retirees Can Stay Youthful Longer and Live The Life They Really Want. Download it here:

The feisty pharmacist laments that, in addition to contributing to decline, traditional retirement throws away the retiree's accumulated wisdom, experience and education. "Not only that," she adds, "every healthy retiree living a traditional leisure-oriented lifestyle has untapped skills that will never blossom, grow, and contribute to their community and the world. Tragically, that unexplored potential winds up six feet under or burned to ash and stored in a cookie jar on the fireplace mantle."

Ms. Morris insists, "Healthy people can enjoy the kind of exciting second life many bored retirees secretly yearn for. My book doesn't leave any doubt about what it takes and how to achieve it. Making it happen is not rocket science."

"I urge healthy boomers close to retirement, or in early retirement, to read my book now and learn how they can enjoy and prosper in what can be the most rewarding and exciting years of life." Download the book here:

The Expert's Guide To Strut Your Stuff! is also available on Amazon.
