Most North Americans are overspent, overtired, overweight and overworked and believe that more money, more stuff, more time, more of everything will lead to more happiness. In this anti?retirement guide for the boomer generation, Bruce O'Hara dismisses this idea and offers seven keys to happiness in the second half of life. Instead of working too much now so you can stop entirely later, why not enjoy retirement's best benefits ? spare time and financial freedom ? immediately, while avoiding the ennui and loss of purpose that can cloud your golden years?O'Hara looks at research on the happiest and longest?lived seniors to understand how it is some people manage to live comparatively long, enjoyable, and useful lives. He peppers this engaging, lively and grounded call to arms with accounts of himself, his friends and neighbours to point out the kind of lives we could be leading ? and why we don't.
Bruce O'Hara founded Work Well, Canada's first work option resource centre. He has worked four or three-day work weeks for nearly 20 years and he reports that it is every bit as wonderful as you might think. He lives on Vancouver Island with his partner Adriana.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Life As A Free Bean The concepts in this books aren't new - some harken back to Thoreau - but they are nicely reinterpreted for the 21st century. After all, we can't all live in a shack on the shores of Walden Pond. In this motivational book directed at the baby boom generation, Canadian Bruce O'Hara coaxes, inspires, wheedles and argues us into letting go of the overworld where most of us reside. Overworked, overspent, overstressed, overtired and overweight, we dream of retirement while ignoring the possibility of leaving our jobs today for the simple, frugal life of free human beings - free beans, as O'Hara would put it. If you want step-by-step instructions on the conserver lifestyle, read Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin or How to Survive without a Salary by Charles Long. If you want a cheerleader to see you into your new life, O'Hara's your man.
