Just one look at the photos and all your excuses for being a couch potato go out the door. This book is filled with inspirational photos of senior athletes. Helen Zechmeister, age 91, works out 3 days a week, deadlifts 200 pounds and can do the full splits. A competitive swimmer, Marie Wilcox-Little at 73 has a much better figure than I could ever hope to have (I'm merely 30). My favorite: Ivor Welch,(Volume 1)was never active until 83 when his wife his wife passed away. To mourn her death he started walking, then running, then running marathons. By the age of 90 he ran five marathons and 2 half marathons! If Ivor can do it, by golly, so can I! A must have for anyone who wants to enjoy life to its fullest!

I've bought the first book for so many friends as they've reached landmark birthdays, (50's) I decided to get book II for our friend's 75th! Both books are great reminder of just how much ability we have at all stages of life. It's about how much you can do, no matter what your age, instead of viewing age as a limitation.

This book is a must for anyone who works with older adults. It is a photographic essay of some very special people....people who embrace the robustness of life, and who are disciplined to maintain their capabilities as long as possible. Our world is steeped in ageism, that is, believing that older people are only capable of doing things that are "appropriate" for their age. This book shatters those beliefs and provides living examples of people who continue doing what they love to do physically. I wish that Etta Clark would revise this book with a new set of photos every year! I have seen some of these photos over and over again in lectures that people give about aging. It is a book to be owned, not borrowed.

As a professional photographer, I can really appreciate the beautiful and revealing black and white portraits of Etta Clark. Yes, the writings match the quality of the photographs as well.

I bought this book for my parents (72 and 75 years young) and my mother loved it!!! She started taking Yoga this year and feels like "a new woman." She said to me "I don't just get out of my car now, I BOUNCE out of my car!" She thought it was as inspirational as I did. Can't seem to find version I of this, though. Can someone help???

Etta Clark scores with Growing Old is Not For Sissies II. Her book is filled with beautiful photography and a second look at some of the subjects from her first book. With frank honesty, she captures the essence of her subjects once again. An excellent book of art for any fan of photography.

This book is an inspiration to all! Great pictures of senor athletes who are in fabulous shape. If we all could look this great at advanced age!
Just goes to show that physical excercise can keep you young and fit!
Looved this book and think it's a great gift item.
