The title sounded so promising ....
on September 3, 2013
About to turn 80 next year, I was looking for some truths and advice about how to handle the pre-existing condition of aging with good humor and acceptance which is the hard part. This book just isn't about aging, not when I look at it from my aging point of view. There are a few mentions of it but more or less in a throw-away manner, nothing that sticks with me and most of the mentions are superficial. It is more about reminiscing about the author's youth which, to me, is a different subject.
I got more knowledge in one sentence from my mother when I was about 50 years old and her words still ring in my ears because they are true! She said: You will get about 365 ailments a year, every day a different one but the good thing is most of them will only last a few hours or a few days.
I think the author has a lot of fans and friends and that must have a lot to do with all the 5 star reviews. She must have lived her life right.
