Format: Paperback
While I am not even close to being 60 yet, I found these stories inspirational, funny, and enjoyable. It made me realize that life doesn't end when you turn 30, I mean 60! The stories are from real men and women over 60 who have taken on some crazy adventures and decided to make the most of their lives. They are all short stories (2-3 pages) that you can pick up and read anytime.

Format: Paperback
The Chicken Soup For The Soul series is by far one of the best literary experiences I have enjoyed as well as a life-altering experience for the reader. In this new installment INSPIRATION FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART I feel as though individuals of all ages will enjoy the lessons, the stories and the inspiration that comes from it.

So many times as we age we feel as though we are automatically unable to do some of the things we have enjoyed in the past. There are even some instances where we want to continue to enjoy certain aspects of life, but others might feel as though we have lost that spark or right to do what we feel like we still can. For those people this book will not only open your eyes, but hopefully widen your appreciation for those who have age and wisdom on their side.

The big lesson? We don't have to let age stop us from growing, from experiencing life and more importantly stop living! There are so many things that are better with age, and when you have come to be comfortable with the skin you are in, there are few things that will limit your appreciation for each day and those that you meet.

The writers of CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL and those who have contributed their stories to this book understand though you might not always be at your best, it doesn't mean your best days are behind you.

This is a book that people of all ages will be able to read and see that inspiration comes in many forms and from people of all walks of life. It's just up to us to be open to it.

Format: Paperback
If you're of retirement age, you'll find that these tales well illustrate a sea change in senior citizenry since your grandpa collected his gold watch. These contributors wholeheartedly embrace the opportunity to embellish their lives with new experiences, from river rafting to studying Dickens at the University of Cambridge to getting a story published at long last...and one even sports radiantly purple hair as she sheds her chameleon suit. This would make a great Thanksgiving gift for everybody you know who has been dreading growing older.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. For awhile I could claim to have read every one in print (in English) - but then there's been an explosion of volumes. Some are mostly original stories, and many are primarily reprints of stories from prior books. I'm enjoying this one, but not feeling the need to consume is at warp speed. No regrets about the purchase, there are just others in the series that I enjoy even more. Who knows - maybe I haven't yet found the most important gems in this one. Somehow I'd gotten the mistaken impression that these stories focused on middle aged on up (i.e. 40's or 50's plus). It seems to focus on over 60. Still pleasant and worth reading, just not quite what I expected. Perhaps in a few years when I can better identify with it I'll appreciate it more.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A Goddess of Literature on February 27, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting more bible passages and religious theory. This book is filled with humorous, uplifting stories that encourage the older generation that while retirement may mean the end of life as they know it, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Retirement can also mark a new beginning. An era where the kids are grown, and exploration of the things one always wanted to do but never had the time is possible.

A lot of the stories though, pertain to those who have the nest egg saved up to travel or spare no expense in their endeavors. While some do give ideas and examples of more localized ways to spread one’s wings, I got the impression that seniors who need to be more frugal in their retirement, may find this book more apt to inspire yearning, rather than hope. All in all it is very entertaining and had me chuckling out loud several times.
