Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Carl Honoré‘s narration of his inspiring book has the kind of energy that will help people expand what’s possible for them in their later years. With his quietly assertive enthusiasm making his message hard to dismiss, he offers new research that shows how our mental image of late life has tremendous power to motivate good habits, provoke unlikely achievements, and juice up our quality of life. He says we have much more mental flexibility than is commonly believed, well-honed social skills, and openness to health information and psychological guidance that can help us live into our 90s and beyond. With memorable examples of many mid- and late-life success stories, his stirring research and faith in the human spirit will linger long after one hears this exceptional audio. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
