Editorial Reviews

Review

This short book wonderfully takes the reader into a world of companionship among our fastest-growing segment of America: those over 65. Every day since Jan 1, 2011, 10,000 baby boomers are reaching golden pond and at 65 they all strive to be active and functional. By delving into what drives people together in relationships, Regina has succeeded in opening our minds and hearts to the needs of older adults to have friendships that have meaning. Older adults need not be remarried to have love and intimacy but rather they need to bond in their zest for life and share their deepest thoughts. Love & Successful Aging When You're 70+ and Single has achieved its goal of educating society what the norm should be for older individuals: to nurture and develop meaningful relationships with each other. By doing so this book has awakened the public never to judge how and where their older relatives and friends should live but rather open their eyes to the beauty and importance we all must place on meaningful relationships at ANY AGE. --Joel S. Ross, M.D., Pres./Founder/CEO Memory Enhancement Center of America, Inc.

Love & Successful Aging When You're 70+ and Single is a welcome antidote to our youth-based culture's attitude toward aging. Older people are too often stereotyped as over the hill, irrelevant, and, to some extent, invisible. The older folks in Regina's book shine from the pages as real, live human beingswith complex emotions, thoughts, and capabilities, including a desire for love and romance. --Carol H. Behrman, Educator, Lecturer, Author of Writing Skills Problem Solver, Andrew Jackson, The Indian Wars, and Freedom Passage

Regina has written a thoughtful book that will make those over 70 feel they are not alone in their desire for companionship and love. --Alexis Abramson, Ph.D., Gerontologist, The Caregiver's Survival Handbook

I thought the book was well written and demonstrated the fact that aging does not preclude fun, romance, and even as the author found, committed relationships. The author tackled a subject that is not written about too often and did a fine job. I rated it with four stars because I thought we could have enjoyed more interviews with an ever expanding 70+ population. Maybe a sequel?

A great read for ANY age. Love nourishes all of us and the 70+ are no exception. If you've had enough of how to stay young forever with secret Sanskrit recipes or Egyptian ointments, read this unique book and you will KNOW that you are ageless. The true meaning of life is in our hearts, not in that darned painful knee. This is a work of few words but much wisdom. Give Regina a chance to enrich your life, no matter how old you are.

Well written and easy to read, "Love & Successful Aging When You're 70+ and Single" is a thought provoking and eye-opening account of romance among the senior crowd. It's also a how-to or, more precisely, a where-to manual, addressing, among other questions, the most pivotal: where do I meet my special someone? There's a particularly intersting section detailing the experiences of mature adults as they navigate the quirky world of online dating.Peppered with lots of lively anecdotes, "Love & Successful Aging" is an informative and entertaining read that should have resonance for anyone, regardless of age.
