Leslie M. Harris, editor

Baby boomers are an incredibly lucrative market, but in their rush to appeal to youth, many companies have lost contact with boomers as they mature. Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964, with the height of the baby boom in 1957. That means a substantial number of boomers are still in their forties and fifties.

The experts who contributed to this book find that boomers refuse to think of themselves as old, even as they seek some of the comforts of mid-life. As they move through their peak earning years and begin to think about retirement, they still have a sense of fun and self-confidence.

  • Leslie M. Harris, Mature Marketing and Research, Connecting with the Boomers
