Shifting Gears: 50 Baby Boomers Share Their Meaningful Journeys in Retirement is based on interviews with retirees and tells how they are shifting gears into their retirement. Sometimes the shift went smoothly, sometimes the gears were grinding; often it took the retirees time to hit their stride. The stories reveal the rich abundance of retirement ventures, from the exotic to the mundane.

Author Richard Haiduck says his own retirement has been hyperactive. He learns new things through weekly interactions at Stanford, in person or online; he reads about 100 books each years and bikes more than 3,000 miles. He mentors organizations serving refugees and small farmers in Ghana, and enjoys family time during domestic and international travel.
