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.

HASH(0xb49b9c84) out of 5 stars Enjoyable stories, though more predictable than anticipated. May 31 2013
By S.J. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. For awhile I could claim to have read every one in print (in English) - but then there's been an explosion of volumes. Some are mostly original stories, and many are primarily reprints of stories from prior books. I'm enjoying this one, but not feeling the need to consume is at warp speed. No regrets about the purchase, there are just others in the series that I enjoy even more. Who knows - maybe I haven't yet found the most important gems in this one. Somehow I'd gotten the mistaken impression that these stories focused on middle aged on up (i.e. 40's or 50's plus). It seems to focus on over 60. Still pleasant and worth reading, just not quite what I expected. Perhaps in a few years when I can better identify with it I'll appreciate it more.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my mother who is on the verge of retiring. There are many self help books on that subject but I preferred to get her an uplifting book about the "golden years" instead a book that would just confuse and worry her about what she should and should not do when retiring. She told me she really enjoys the book.

I have loved the Chicken Soul collection for many years. The stories are unique, some bring a tear to your eye, some provide a great belly-laugh and others evoke contemplation. All in all they make a great read.
I purchased this book as a gift for one of my friends who recently retired, and she thoroughly enjoys it while relaxing with a cup of tea.
I highly recommend this collection.

HASH(0xb3d6c060) out of 5 stars Well Seasoned Aug. 27 2011
By Theresa J. Elders - Published on
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.
