Older Men's Business: Valuing Relationships, Living with Change
"Speaking with clarity, passion, and humor, older men address issues such as work and retirement, family relationships, deteriorating health, sexuality, spirituality, loneliness, and depression. A compilation of interviews, letters, and focus groups, this thoughtful book features real men explaining real obstacles they face after middle age. The three most prominent changes in an older man's life are retirement, the death of a spouse, and relocation, yet this book reveals that the three topics of greatest interest to them are their father-son relationships, the spiritual aspects of living, and adjusting to feelings of irrelevance to society after retirement. This guide explores major issues faced by older men, including some darker issues such as depression, suicide, and alcoholism, and addresses their need for support networks at this critical period of reevaluation."
