F*ck Retirement: Don't Settle for a Lesser Life in Your Later Years
John Windsor's career arc is impressive. From Broadway star to Global Marketing Director, then to novelist, VP of Marketing for a Silicon Valley startup, presentation coach and top blogger, then successful app developer, and finally executive coach. He has weathered the storms of ageism to bring you insights on how to create your best life at any age. His mission is to help you get the most out of life to your final days.
F*ck Retirement is both a no-holds-barred manifesto against ageism and a detailed self-help book for people who want to reinvent themselves at any age.
People in their 50s and 60s who don't want to settle for a typical retirement, but rather who want to keep learning and building and contributing to the world.
Book cover type
This needs to have impact, like a fist on a table that says, "No fucking way!" So many people, when they reach their 50s and 60s (and 40s and even 30s sometimes), whine about getting "old" — this book is designed to snap them out of those defeatist mindsets. This feels like it should be a text-based treatment, but I'm open to including an image.
What to avoid
Don't go for things like a walker with an X over it or similar. This isn't about banishing "old age" — it's about seizing the reins of your life at a time when too many people are stepping to the sidelines.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
