There's no doubt that today's younger generations will benefit from current and future technological advances, but today's older generations are already seeing the biggest lifestyle improvements ever. We are living longer, more active lives than our parents and grandparents. Our ancestors went from youth to middle age to old age. We, with a new mentality and the help of technology, have added an entire epoch to our lives--the Great Age! Everyone knows that the term baby boomer refers to individuals who were born after World War II. This group is generally recognized as encompassing people who were born between 1946 and 1964. The boomers' older siblings don't have a moniker associated with their generation, but along with the boomers, they are often referred to as zoomers because they are not ready to be relegated to a rocking chair. Boomers and zoomers are zooming into the latter part of their lives, zooming into technology, and zooming into everything they do. They are vibrant individuals who deal enthusiastically with all aspects of their lives. They are ready to enjoy the Great Age that they have created.

Can someone please tell us just what we need to know without the complicated mumbo-jumbo? That is exactly what this series does. It is explicitly geared for the needs and wants of baby boomers and beyond. It tells you just what you need to know--no more and no less. It uses the winning formula of need-to-know information along with easy-to-understand explanations. Over the past decade, I have helped many
