Editorial Reviews

"It's exciting to witness the youthful approach these seniors take transitioning beyond the traditional 9-5 workday world. Wright did an excellent job compiling writers who are energetic, vibrant and hopeful."
"Walt Wright has provided a pathway--a pathway with inestimable upsides. As I read, images danced in my heart of conversations prompted by his provocative questions and carefully crafted exercises that will empower thoughtful readers to identify midcourse corrections that will allow them to make the most of their third third. Read it reflectively. Discuss it in community. And be ready to move into the best chapter of your life!"
"As thousands of boomers are reaching the third phase of life each year, this book is timely. The Third Third of Life is a guide to living life to its fullest. It helps individuals and small groups question and examine what has been learned and experienced in the first phases of life. Those insights can then be intentionally applied to the third phase of life. This can be the time of greatest influence, investment in the lives of others, creativity, learning and enjoyment. This book will encourage and inspire the reader to truly engage the third phase of life."
"As a third-thirder who is having the time of his life, I rejoice in the publication of Walter Wright's latest book, not only because his personal mentoring has had a transformative influence in my life but because The Third Third of Life addresses a critical issue in the twenty-first century. Is there life after work? Should we work until we die? Or play until we die? Or both? Wright offers more than helpful advice or a quick-fix formula. Based on research, personal interviews and his own spiritual journey, he has crafted a holistic and comprehensive guide for people facing future retirement, or retirement from retirement. This book is too good to miss!"
"A few years ago Walter Wright visited me with a question: "How should I think about leadership transition, retirement and the third third of life?" . . . . With this guide, Walt invites you to enter our conversation, to check out your own experience, to design a third third that releases your potential, continues your opportunity to learn, to grow and contribute to the health of the world. I hope you find the questions provocative and the group process rewarding."
