An Ageless, Brilliant Read

by SchoolofSacredArts1983 on Jun 11, 2009

I'm telling all my friends to buy this book. I'm lending my copy to a few--those who don't want to face old age or have anything to do with 'dying'--yet are afraid to live life to the hilt. I've even told my son and daughter-in-law in their 40ies, to read it so that they will understand 'somewhat' what old age is like and live fearlessly. Anthill suggests that 76 might be the dividing line one crosses from middle age into old age. Well, I've made it but I believe that one's 80ies are the new 65 to 75 gang. She is remarkably honest with her sense of humor intact. I agree with so many of her views that I've underlinned and had conversations in the margins with more than half the book. A 'must' read at any age.
