By Aprile on Sept. 12 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is written for the young-at-heart, age 60+. It has 101 entertaining stories about seniors enjoying their best years. I realize that I am not even halfway to this glorious age yet but I still dived in excited to read what I could look forward to. Most of the stories were very humorous and had me chuckling aloud. The stories are about new passions, new adventures, finding love and so much more. I never though getting old would be so much fun and I now look forward to it. Most of the stories in the book had more adventure that what I have experienced in my 26 years of life.

Life does begin at 60...the freedom, the excitement. If you are at or near this wonderful age be sure to pick up this book whether just for amusement or to get some really great ideas to make yourself feel invigorated.

New Book Shows That Inspiration Comes In Many Forms Oct. 28 2011
By Cyrus Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Chicken Soup For The Soul series is by far one of the best literary experiences I have enjoyed as well as a life-altering experience for the reader. In this new installment INSPIRATION FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART I feel as though individuals of all ages will enjoy the lessons, the stories and the inspiration that comes from it.

So many times as we age we feel as though we are automatically unable to do some of the things we have enjoyed in the past. There are even some instances where we want to continue to enjoy certain aspects of life, but others might feel as though we have lost that spark or right to do what we feel like we still can. For those people this book will not only open your eyes, but hopefully widen your appreciation for those who have age and wisdom on their side.

The big lesson? We don't have to let age stop us from growing, from experiencing life and more importantly stop living! There are so many things that are better with age, and when you have come to be comfortable with the skin you are in, there are few things that will limit your appreciation for each day and those that you meet.

The writers of CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL and those who have contributed their stories to this book understand though you might not always be at your best, it doesn't mean your best days are behind you.

This is a book that people of all ages will be able to read and see that inspiration comes in many forms and from people of all walks of life. It's just up to us to be open to it.

Well Seasoned Aug. 27 2011
By Theresa J. Elders - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're of retirement age, you'll find that these tales well illustrate a sea change in senior citizenry since your grandpa collected his gold watch. These contributors wholeheartedly embrace the opportunity to embellish their lives with new experiences, from river rafting to studying Dickens at the University of Cambridge to getting a story published at long last...and one even sports radiantly purple hair as she sheds her chameleon suit. This would make a great Thanksgiving gift for everybody you know who has been dreading growing older.

Over 60 is not the end of the world! Nov. 19 2011
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While I am not even close to being 60 yet, I found these stories inspirational, funny, and enjoyable. It made me realize that life doesn't end when you turn 30, I mean 60! The stories are from real men and women over 60 who have taken on some crazy adventures and decided to make the most of their lives. They are all short stories (2-3 pages) that you can pick up and read anytime.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Reviewed Feb. 27 2013
By A Goddess of Literature - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting more bible passages and religious theory. This book is filled with humorous, uplifting stories that encourage the older generation that while retirement may mean the end of life as they know it, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Retirement can also mark a new beginning. An era where the kids are grown, and exploration of the things one always wanted to do but never had the time is possible.

A lot of the stories though, pertain to those who have the nest egg saved up to travel or spare no expense in their endeavors. While some do give ideas and examples of more localized ways to spread one’s wings, I got the impression that seniors who need to be more frugal in their retirement, may find this book more apt to inspire yearning, rather than hope. All in all it is very entertaining and had me chuckling out loud several times.
