Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Ministries
"If you want to win with money or life, you need to take a good look at other people who are winning. If you want to know how to win over the long haul, you need to talk to people who have a lot of life experience under their belts and who've still come out ahead. That's exactly what you'll get in Celebrate 100."
Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
"Anyone who has ever listened to old men tell stories in a town square or heard grandmothers and great-grandmothers chatter in the kitchen knows the sheer joy and fascination of it. Now Steve Franklin and Lynn Peters Adler have brought us a book that cracklesand cackleswith just such an experience. Their compilation of centenarian stories, 'secrets' and advice is a touching and helpful gift to our youth-obsessed age."
Stephen Mansfield, New York Times bestselling author
"Steve Franklin and Lynn Adler have helped inspire my dad, Truett Cathy (founder and CEO of Chick-fil-A), to up his game. He now wants to live to 110, thanks in part to Celebrate 100! Read this book."
Don M. "Bubba" Cathy, Executive Vice President, Chick-fil-A
"This book is an incredible treasure. Steve and Lynn have given us a well-organized look at many who have lived and experienced over 100 years of life. These men and women have experienced remarkable change, probably like nothing in the history of the world. I was impressed with several things. First of all, what wisdom and perspective they have. Secondly, how positive their attitudes are and finally, how fundamental their advice is. We hear all the time how 'this time it's different.' These wonderful people tell us that while the circumstances may differ, the response remains the same: 'Follow principles, not fads.' Thank you, Steve and Lynn, for giving us a book that should be on everyone's reading list."
Ron Blue, founder of Kingdom Advisors and author of the national bestseller Master Your Money
