In this book, Brian Murphy, baby boomer advocate, recounts his life story. From his simple beginnings growing up in the inner-city suburbs of Brisbane, through his tumultuous experiences in work and life, Brian recounts how he became involved in improving the working lives of fellow baby boomers.
The baby boom of the mid-twentieth century was the catalyst for dramatic change. Changes to tradition, government, societal expectations, war and peace, education, the arts, sciences and culture would conquer the world over the next 50 years.
It was a period of history that would allow the baby boomer generation to achieve more as a group than any previous generation. A period of stability, peace, free education and liberal thinking.
But not all baby boomers achieved greatness. Some just went along for the ride, living their lives, achieving small things, dreaming big dreams – but what a ride it was for the boomer generation.
Brian is the current editor of BONZA (Baby Boomers of NZ and Australia), an online resource for boomers. He is a life mentor and an educator to hundreds of thousands of boomers about preparing for their future in an ageing Australia.
This is his life story.
