Exceeded expectations! This is an easy to read but high-impact book that really speaks to the challenges faced by many professionals with 20+ years of experience. The author’s description of executive search is brilliantly funny…..and accurate. The book is direct and is willing to take-on topics that are often brushed under the carpet or considered to be “too sensitive”. Well done. An inspiring and prescriptive read for anyone at this mid/advanced stage in their career, whether they have been “fired for age” or not.

If you’re among the millions of baby boomers long on life, short on wealth yet a truncated career, Reynold Lewke’s new book is a great guide to add to your “re-boot your life” tool kit.

The real genius of “Hired For Youth-Fired For Age” is how it goes beyond its practical professional advice. I love this book because Reynold encourages you to see with fresh eyes the big picture: Your finances. Your health. Your relationships. Your faith and moral compass.

Hired for Youth, Fired for Age serves up life lessons for those who feel age is a disability, and teaches them that age is a asset. This book is a must read for people looking to revamp their career or enter the workforce.
Reynold Lewke redefines the career path from a sprint to a marathon. This requires a new way of thinking about the way you prepare yourself, pace yourself and define the goals you want to achieve. While the title seems to focus on individuals who are well along in their career journey, it is also valuable to people who are just starting out.
Hired for Youth, Fired for Age is tremendous for professionals looking to transform their careers at any age. Engaging, concise and thought-provoking, I highly recommend this for anyone looking to take their career into their own hands and make a difference.
