Master Class Road Scholar

Tuesday December 11, 2012
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM

Peter Spiers has authored a new book entitled Master Class: Living Longer, Stronger, and Happier.

Master Class reverse engineers the lifestyle of some of the most hale and hearty older people in the world, the participants in Road Scholar’s educational travel programs, and lays out a holistic program, targeted at people on the cusp of retirement, for a life of engagement, enrichment and fulfillment.

Master Class identifies 25-30 core activities—from volunteering and joining Lifelong Learning Institutes to gardening and educational travel—to which Masters are drawn, and explains why their blend of socializing, moving, creating, and thinking are a recipe for both successful aging and cognitive health. Master Class carefully integrates the latest in academic and internal Road Scholar research, but it’s the testimony of the Masters themselves that makes the most compelling case for the lifestyle, and which will motivate readers to get on the road to becoming Masters themselves.

In this presentation, Mr. Spiers will illustrate what healthy aging looks like based on new academic research, focus groups and personal interviews.

Peter Spiers is the senior vice president of strategic outreach for Road Scholar. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University, a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics, and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
