This easy to read book helped me to understand my feelings and how to approach the very scary subject of helping to down size. It gave me insight as to how my mother-in-law is thinking about her home and possessions and how to approach the "it's time to think about moving" talk.
How to start to prepare myself & my attitude and how to say things that open conversations and not slam doors were all here and all very helpful. I have recommended it to a friend. I even wrote about it on my Facebook page. Relocating parents is very tough but I don't feel so alone on this journey now.

"No Ordinary Move" points out that the sooner boomers help aging parents consider their future living options, the more and better choices they will have. I very much related to the a parable of a fairly typical family working through their dynamics and conflicts, which were brought into sharp relief as tensions mount between the three siblings as their parents' needs -- and denial -- increase. Best of all, the authors walk readers through the practical issues, physical challenges and emotional trigger points, and offer a plethora of resourceful solutions. I plan to purchase multiple copies, to give as holiday gifts for many boomer friends and cousins who are confronting the issues "No Ordinary Move" addresses with such compassion and wisdom.

The way this book is written, it seems more like a therapy session for the author than any sort of "how-to" for the reader. Worst of all, it SELLS "move coordinator" services worse than a 30 minute infomercial. I had a hard time reading it for "pointers" while trying to overlook all that.

... at how normal, regular, everyday families in this day & age are going to have to deal with aging. As I have experienced this myself, the book documents much of what has to happen. BUT, because it is a written work, it provides an outline that can be referenced repeatedly through the process - and help to keep things from getting overwhelming. I am sure I will need to read it again - and I will definitely refer others to it!
