Unretirement: How Baby Boomers Are Changing the Way We Think About Work, Community and the Good Life by Chris Farrell

Chris Farrell is a journalist and economics commentator. He began his working life as a merchant seaman, before attending the London School of Economics and later contributing to radio, TV and print media.
