Second Wind, by Dr. Bill Thomas

The Baby Boom generation is starting to burn out. A frenzied lifestyle of career, parenting, striving, and constant doing is having a ripple effect on future generations. Dr. Thomas, an expert on aging, warns that we are "living in a way that calls for another way of living". In Second Wind he traces the beliefs that have led to our current imbalance, beginning with the Postwar Generation. Through four composite characters he dramatizes the turning points in life, and the effects of history, society, and demographics on shaping a generation. Boomers are entering a third age, beyond adulthood—an opportunity for renewal and deep healing. Dr. Thomas shows how to "navigate the passage," rebalance one's life, put a positive spin on aging, and pave the way for a healthy cultural change.
