Launch Your Encore: Finding Adventure & Purpose Later in Life by Hans Finzel and Rick Hicks is based on the premise that those in the “60-80 Window” age range of life can still have a powerful and necessary impact on the world. The topic is relevant and needed for many, especially as the Boomer Generation approaches and fills up that life-stage bracket.
The full impact of the book, along with its most directive suggestions, are encapsulated in the final chapter and the conclusion. The rest of the book – with its introduction to the topic, assistance in reimagining your future, and inspirational stories – all seem to be taking the reader on a slow journey to those last few pages.
The reader may get help from the main body of the book, but the most practical help in launching your encore is found at the encore of the book.
