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.
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.
Life does begin at 60...the freedom, the excitement. If you are at or near this wonderful age be sure to pick up this book whether just for amusement or to get some really great ideas to make yourself feel invigorated.

I have loved the Chicken Soul collection for many years. The stories are unique, some bring a tear to your eye, some provide a great belly-laugh and others evoke contemplation. Read morePublished on August 18, 2013 by Bella

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. Read morePublished on May 31, 2013 by S.J.
I have collected the Chicken Soup books since 1993. Only a few that I still don't have. Always thought the very first book was the absolute best. But it has now been upstaged! Read morePublished on February 14, 2012 by lohmalinda
