The Rainbow Years: The Pluses of Being 50 Plus

At the age of 65 I have decided that it is about time that I began blogging on my own. Mike Scally and I have a new book being published by Middlesex University Press at the end of November called, not surprisingly, The Rainbow Years: The Pluses of Being 50+.

This is accompanied by a website We were the subject matter experts for this site which was launched by learndirect earlier this year and is aimed at all the areas of mature living that we discuss in the book. The site is freely available.

One of the frustrations of publishing a book is that from the moment it is printed it is out of date, and these days faster than ever, so I have decided to use this blog to update people interested in this topic with the latest news, stats, viewpoints and even gossip relevant to this age group.

We really are a generation unique in human history - healthier, wealthier, happier, fitter, more long living than any previous generation.

Watch this space as we will endeavour to prove this from here on.
