Book News
That elephant-inside-the-snake in the graphic describing the tabulation of the baby boomers is moving tailward, and the generation that changed education, working, marriage, and even giving birth is now heading toward retirement and the elements of health care associated with aging. Journalist Weisman (from radio's A Touch of Gray takes on the challenge of explaining to boomers how things stand at present, starting with money. He describes retirement plans, investing, annuities, income taxes, reverse mortgages and the effects of age discrimination, then covers planning for long-term care, including home care, assisted-living facilities, nursing homes, and insurance. The scariest material is on government programs such as social security, Medicare and Medicaid, followed by that on advance-care health directives, but knowing boomers, even then the party of intense personal preferences will go on.
