Many "youngsters" not yet age 65 -- doctors, researchers, educators and experts -- write anti-aging books. Because they lack first hand "old age" experience, they present their own research and opinions and regurgitate research and opinions of others.

When writing an anti-aging book designed to help avoid pitfalls of the aging process, experience reigns supreme. The person who reaches 65 and beyond knows what it takes to outsmart father time. You cannot argue with wisdom that comes with "been there and done that."

And that's what makes "How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of your Life" by Art Linkletter and Mark Victor Hansen the absolute best tool to help you achieve victory over the aging process. You may not know that Art Linkletter is ninety-four. Retirement claims no place in his busy life, nor will it ever. When he tells what you need to do to stay ageless and productive, you hear the voice of experience and you "listen up."

"How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life" gives more than you can possibly imagine. In addition to Art and Mark's own experience and expertise, the pair called upon other "ageless wonders" to add to the most valuable accumulation of knowledge and experience you will find anywhere. I am proud that Art and Mark invited me to contribute some of my expertise and wisdom to help boomers and those younger reach my incredibly "ageless" age, now seventy-seven.

Want to know what truly dynamic ageless people know and do? Want to know what vibrantly ageless people know about dietary supplements, and which supplements keep them young and healthy? Want to know what kind of mental attitude works best to manage the aging process? Want to know why most successful older people don't retire, and what they do instead?

As a senior myself, I was elated to find this book so practical and encouraging to anyone who does not see themselves as an "old fogey", ready to be shelved until the grim reaper comes along. Older adults have a wealth of experience, wisdom and knowledge to share and this culture has worshipped youth for far too long. The authors have coined a wonderful new word, "re-fire" as an excellent way of describing the process of finding a new path to the "Rest of Your Life!"

From finances to health and sex (yes sex!), the authors offer excellent advice and wonderful ideas for making the "Best of Your Life" meaningful, productive and thoroughly enjoyable. It should be required reading for anyone who wants to have an energetic, exciting and productive life after retirement age!

There's nothing bad to say about this book. Everything in it has been said before by many other people in many places. The non-religious may be discomfited by this book's stress on religious and near-religious beliefs.

What's refreshing in its way is the upbeat attitudes of authors Linkletter and Hansen. Both men have had full, rewarding lives and large fortunes, which may affect their attitudes. Not all have been as fortunate as they.

Their advice, as noted, is nothing you won't find elsewhere. There are chapters on the "myths" of aging, taking care of your aging body, are you "sageing" or "aging", sex, spirituality, attitude, creativity and so on. Nothing that hasn't been covered someplace else. The book is up-to-date and "with it", so to speak: there's a section on web resources.

All told, there's nothing really bad to say about the book: it's the same advice you'll find in dozens of other places.

I love the positivity of this book and it has a lot of great advice. However, after reviewing it and being retired, I can tell you that everyone has their own path that they must forge. Continuing to work if great if you have careers to continue like the authors had. Also, your spouse has to be your first consideration.

I found this book incredibly encouraging. Having zoomed past 60 some years ago I am still very physically active and not looking to slow down. This book encouraged me in my goals and my desire to live until I die. Anyone who desires to live the last decades of their lives with fiscal responsibility, ongoing goals and a sense of real purpose should read this book. It will encourage you to exercise and to learn how to eat properly and live according to you personal goals rather than what the economy or the surrounding culture dictates. I was disappointed when the book ended.
