BOSTON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Through inspirational stories from Road Scholar participants, supported by the latest research in the fields of psychology and neuroscience, author Peter Spiers, senior vice president of Road Scholar, shows how to build an enriching lifestyle on the foundation of favorite activities in the new book "Master Class: Living Longer, Stronger, and Happier" (Center Street, June 2012).
"With most of the 78 million U.S. baby boomers now in their 50s and 60s," says Spiers, "many in this generation are asking whether they will control their next phase of life or it will control them. The good news is that they can learn in my book from the pioneers who have gone before them."
According to Spiers, anyone who follows a few rules gleaned from five years of research can lead rich and active lives in their 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond. His book, with a foreword by NBC's Brian Williams, "reverse engineers" the lives of some of the most active, happy and intellectually engaged older Americans who exemplify healthy aging, and offers a structured program that showcases their secrets for successful aging and retirement.
Peter Spiers holds a bachelor's degree from Harvard University, a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics, and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
