These are just a few of the reviews of a new book written by our very own Sandra Lee Scott (known to the MidCal group as Sandee Archer, Ken’s better half). Sandee has highlighted the lives of 191 leading-edge Baby Boomers* “Bloomers” and their profound impact on popular culture as well as the planet. The book covers their insights on life, success, aging, mortality, and creating legacies.
Just a few of the Bloomers highlighted in Sandee’s book include Diane Keaton, Dolly Parton, Donald Trump, Sylvester Stallone, Cheech Marin, Linda Ronstadt, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Sally Field, Ben Vereen, Patty Duke, Steven Spielberg and Jimmy Buffett. Sandee’s latest book includes a concise decade review of 1940 – 2010, which is sure to evoke nostalgia while providing the world context in which the Bloomin’ Boomers bloomed.

Seventy-six million American children were born between 1945 and 1964, representing a cohort that is significant on account of its size alone. As a group, they were the healthiest and wealthiest generation to that time, and amongst the first to grow up genuinely expecting the world to improve with time.
