Not if it is a fictionalized story based on facts because it creats confusion about what is true and what is not. I listened to this book with great interest and enjoyed it very much as I felt that I was learning a lot about the historical figures of India about whom I read in my high school. It is my fault because I did not realize until the end that it was a fiction.
It was a big let down. Every day after I came home driving from work, I would tell my wife and the kids about what I learned about Nur Jahan, Sha Jahan, Jahangir and so on. So, I am now embarassed to admit to them most of what I told them may not be true. It actually made me very upset.
She points out that the "retired" life of a baby boomer will be very different from someone in an earlier generation. We are living longer than the generations before. Therefore, it is very imprtant to figure out what we really want to do after we "retire" from our jobs. We cannot sit at home and watch TV, play golf and just travel all the time. There has to be another purpose for the final phase of life. Figuring what that is the challenge.
She read her book very well. I enjoyed listening to her and it reminded of the days I used to listen to her in the mornings on NBC TV in the 1970s
The career may have been a distraction for something you really wanted to do in life
