These stories and photographs of amazing supercentenarians, ordinary people who have lived extraordinary lives spanning three centuries,are inspirational and captivating. The interviews illuminate the life experiences of these hardy individuals; their portraits show visually a glimpse into their souls; the essays have lessons for all of us. This is an amazing book with a message for everyone on how to live life to the fullest. Bravo!!

I enjoyed the book very much. The essays in the beginning of the book were outstanding and reading a short bio of each of the supercentenarians was fascinating. Though they were from all over the globe, they all shared many of the same habits and spirituality. And since the book was edited by a photgrapher, the pictures really captured the essence of each elder. Overall, a very life affirming, positive and spiritual book.

Format: Hardcover
Great book. I couldn't put it down. Very inspirational. Each of the stories were only a few pages long which made it nice if you didn't have a lot of time on your hands at one sitting. The author gives you complete freedom to come to your own conclusions as to why these special people lived so long. I never write reviews, but went on-line to buy another book like it and just decided to brag about it. It is a super book to put in your on your coffee table or guest room.

Very good book. Worth the read but I had hoped for more. I would have liked to hear more insights on what each wished they had done in life (regrets), what they were glad they had done, maybe more advice to pass on to us. I realize many were failing in health but still maintained their spirit. I suspect interviewing subjects "over 90" instead of 110 may have offered us more. Good photographs. Again, worth the read and touching at times.

Format: Hardcover
I really like this book. It is as I expected. The rules of living a long life are easily garnered from the stories of the elders. I save the stories for when I travel from my island home on Bell Island ,NL. They help pass the time as the boat rolls along... I don't enjoy the boat so the elders' keep me so interested I forget where I am..
