    I won this from Goodreads. This is an excellent book about aging which I am doing and not doing very well. I remember when I looking forward to turning 21. Then all of a sudden I was 30 and then 40 and then 50 I was still going strong and not worrying a whole lot about age. At age 56 I fell and got disabled and then I really started noticing my age. At 60 I still want to do tons of things but I have to go at a way slower speed. My brain still feels young but my body is not cooperating. So the bo

    I won this from Goodreads. This is an excellent book about aging which I am doing and not doing very well. I remember when I looking forward to turning 21. Then all of a sudden I was 30 and then 40 and then 50 I was still going strong and not worrying a whole lot about age. At age 56 I fell and got disabled and then I really started noticing my age. At 60 I still want to do tons of things but I have to go at a way slower speed. My brain still feels young but my body is not cooperating. So the book is about how aging is hard but also can be good. One thing I feel is I have more knowledge and I know what makes me happy and I want to live my true life and only to do things that fulfill me and not what other people want me to do or show up to. And you learn your whole life. Loved this book.

    Release date is October the 10th 2017. First and foremost thank you to the author, Thomas Moore, St. Martin's Press and Goodreads for the advanced readers copy. Aging is a tough subject for me. I was so happy to receive this book. Aging is tough on those of us who do not weather it well. I've always said since my forties that I feel like I'm 20 until I pass by a mirror.

I was so happy to receive this book. Aging is tough on those of us who do not weather it well. I've always said since my forties that I feel like I'm 20 until I pass by a mirror. The author brings so many choices to the table with this book. I will read it again and probably again. There is so much to learn from this author. I will definitely check into other books that he has written as well. "Always trust your intuitions", something I've known deep down but never follow through at times. Page 273 is my favorite, actually the whole conclusion section of the book is my favorite. The author says so much within the conclusion. I feel like I need to have the whole chapter tattooed so I can just read it over and over everyday, or even when I'm having pity parties about my age. Of course that would be one gigantic tattoo LOL "Those who have had traumatic experiences in childhood... find it difficult to face passages of adulthood. They get stuck in a place of memory" .. this quote explains me to a T, even my childhood friends that I have run into within the past year remembers my traumatic childhood of abuse. My friends who thought my mother was actually my stepmom. I never really thought until I read this book that childhood follows you through the rest of your life. This book brings so many things into light that I never thought about. I was very emotional as I read this book, but it's not a bad thing. Thank you again to St. Martin's Press for selecting me as one of the very very lucky people to embrace an amazing book. I will definitely keep this one close 💕

    I received a free copy of this book from the Publisher through the Goodreads Giveaways program.

    A lot of what the author says in this book is common sense if you look at aging as a positive thing. He does explain the difference between aging and getting old. As someone who is moving into middle age while still feeling quite young on the inside, I do think about different views on aging. Our society seems to devalue people based on looks and stop noticing older people, but everyone has a story and

    I won this book from Goodreads just in time for my birthday. The author presents a deep and hopeful view of aging as a positive process, one that can happen at any time in life. If one embraces it, aging can bring renewed vitality and wisdom. The author also writes about how to remain young in your outlook. There is much to absorb here and I will be re-eading this book as time goes on!

    A beautiful book about aging, the author talks about many aspects of aging inculding health, anger, sex, finding purpose after retirement, and several more. I have read several of Thomas Moore's book and I have enjoyed and learned a lot from them. This one is filled with ideas on how to age well. I loved the suggestions of facing aging head on and not trying to pretend to be an age you are not.

He talks about looking into your past, telling meaningful stories about your life, mentoring, and finding interests and hobbies that are meaningful to you. These are just some of the ideas discussed in the book. I highly recommend this to anyone facing getting older in a society so obsessed with youth.

    I was gifted this book through the giveaway program at Goodreads!

    We need to embrace the experience of growing older instead of dreading it. Mr. Moore has written a beautiful book that can be referred to again and again throughout our lives

    Is it because I'm old myself that I already knew everything Moore shares in this book? I don't know, but I was deeply disappointed. I can sum up the entire book in one sentence: Aging is inevitable and it will cause you to confront physical debilitation, illness, loss of work, and death. I, sadly, took away nothing new from this book, except the very first opening story about a monk who observed a young man raking leaves and then releases all the raked leaves back into the garden, commenting, "B

I, sadly, took away nothing new from this book, except the very first opening story about a monk who observed a young man raking leaves and then releases all the raked leaves back into the garden, commenting, "Beautiful." I hoped for so much more.

    Thomas Moore has written a very compassionate and optimistic book on aging and how to do it well. He points out that it’s not just our bodies that age but also our soul. And while our bodies may have its limits when it gets older, our soul knows no limits and can mature and improve throughout our lives.

    We have all of our past ages now residing in our soul. We have a youthful soul that it’s important to stay in touch with. We need to keep those souls in harmony, not too much of an old soul, but n

    Thomas Moore has written a very compassionate and optimistic book on aging and how to do it well. He points out that it’s not just our bodies that age but also our soul. And while our bodies may have its limits when it gets older, our soul knows no limits and can mature and improve throughout our lives.

    We have all of our past ages now residing in our soul. We have a youthful soul that it’s important to stay in touch with. We need to keep those souls in harmony, not too much of an old soul, but not too much of a young soul either. We’re not a complete person if we not retain each of the ages of our soul. We start our aging process as soon as we’re born and we need to continue to build our character as we age. Some of us only age physically, while our soul remains stagnant and never really develops. We need to remain open to new opportunities and learning and how to connect with others.

    Mr. Moore writes about how older people can become “elders” and help mentor the young. That’s something that seems to be missing in our society. It’s a youthful society and the merits of learning from the wisdom of its elders is not as important as it once was.

    We need to embrace the experience of growing older instead of dreading it. Mr. Moore has written a beautiful book that can be referred to again and again throughout our lives.

    Recommended.
