5.0 out of 5 stars Life Guide for All Ages 1 Feb. 2012
By Casbrink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Middleton's clear crisp style of writing makes for an easy read; his personal nsights from talking with Centenarians makes for a fascinating and engaging read. This book can easily be read in an afternoon curled up on the couch but also as a ready reference for encouragement and guidance whenever needed. I enjoyed the stories of these admirable people but the cited references and famous quotes selected to support their stories added a new level of credibility to Middleton's insights.

I find myself excited to share this work with others: my 90 yr. old aunt who could use a hopeful message; to my four sons who look to me for guidance; to my sister who I want to share many more years with; to friends who are part of my support system; actually anyone who I really care about.

To me, this book is a guide for living a good, productive, happy life for any age. Who cannot benefit from that good news? Thank you, Marc, and those who worked by your side, to produce this meaningful work.

It is misleading. It is advertised as having the actual interviews showing on the pages, but instead, just "quotes".

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a book that EVERYONE should read! 1 Feb. 2012
By Sandy Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First a disclaimer. I have been a big fan of the author for many years. I used to often watch Marc Middleton when he was a sports anchor on the NBC affiliate in Orlando - WESH. Years later, after moving from the area, I was happy to discover him through the incredible company, Growing Bolder Media of which he is the founder and CEO. Growing Bolder has a fascinating website which has become a meeting place for many fans of the concept of growing bolder rather than simply just growing older. Not only can there be found endless fascinating stories of some of the most interesting people on the planet, but the website is an incredible medium for the exchange of interesting and exciting ideas written by interesting and exciting people. I love both their radio and TV programs. The latter is broadcast nationally in over 200 markets. If you have not seen it, you owe it to yourself to both check out the website at [...], and your local programming for the time/channel of the Growing Bolder TV show. Marc is also a regular blogger on Huffington Post, and I have yet to read one of his blogs that I did not find relevant and fascinating. Enough with the disclaimers.

I was very pleased to discover that Marc had written this book, in that the subject is one that I find quite fascinating. But let me digress. I buy a lot of books on Amazon. For example, as an avid cyclist I have probably purchased a very high percentage of the books that are available on the subject. You, however, may or may not be interested in a cycling book. This book however, should be of interest to anyone interested in the subject of leading a long, healthy, active and fruitful life - something that I am sure we all strive for. I certainly do.

Not only do we get an incredible insight into some amazing centenarians, but to me the most fascinating part of the book was chapter 6 which is entitled, "The 50 Ways to Live to 100." These 50 "ways" are a compendium of long observation and conversations with many, very active, vigorous centenarians. We get the privilege of going to school on them. As an engineer by schooling, I am addicted to things mathematical hence I am compelled to point out that according to my deep calculations, the price of admission to learn these 50 "techniques" if you will, is a bargain dime per tip. The rest of the book is then virtually free!

I would be disingenuous however if I failed to point out that you might not be able to utilize all 50 tips. For example, one of the common traits of these folks was that they stayed married. They may or may not have lost their spouse, but during the years of marriage, they were quite happy, and continue to live contentedly with the memories of wonderful unions. So, if you have just undergone a bitter divorce prior to reading this book, please know that you still are paying only 10 cents each for the 49 applicable tips! Of course you will hopefully go on to find your soulmate and hence comply with all 50 principles!

In all seriousness, if you have a body and a brain, which probably applies to almost everyone reading this, and if you are interested in living as long a vigorous, healthy, productive, exciting life as you possibly can, this book is a user manual for that goal. My understanding is that this book is simply the first in what will be a series of fascinating books published by Growing Bolder Media, and I can't wait to see the next!

Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Marc Middleton and his team at Growing Bolder, and have been a loyal listener and viewer of the Growing Bolder Radio and TV shows (as well as a guest) for quite a while. In that time, I have seen Marc talk with passion and sheer joy about the amazing things that ordinary people (who just happen to be aging) are doing all across America, every day. Marc has interviewed scores of men and women over 50 who are reinventing their careers, starting companies, running marathons, becoming artists, writing books . . . . all because they are filled with an incredible zest and determination, even in the face of some pretty major challenges. What I've seen and heard through the Growing Bolder programs, and on their website, has inspired me to continue to go way beyond my comfort zone as I get older, and embrace my age with joy, grace, and humor.

"Rock Stars of Aging" takes this same enthusiastic approach and presents the reader with lessons from some of our "most active elders." The book, as Marc points out in his introduction, is not based on surveys, scientific research, or the opinions of scholars . . . but instead is based on the extensive first-hand experience Marc and his team have had interviewing men and women in their 80s, 90s and beyond. We have the pleasure of meeting men and women who are graduating from college, playing the ukulele, and setting world records as the oldest barefoot water skier. From all these wonderful people, many lessons can be learned . . . and Marc shares them all with us, the readers. As diverse as this group of elders is, there are many commonalities that bind them together: what they eat or don't eat; how much sleep they get; how they approach each day; their philosophies on marriage and friendships; their enthusiasm for work; and so on. Although, as Marc pointed out, there's no scientific evidence, it seems clear from the many beautifully written anecdotes that they all share many common traits, especially . . . a life lived without fear or regret.

I highly recommend this lovely book, filled with charming quotes and anecdotes. You'll want to hug each and every one of the interesting and vivacious people you meet in it's pages . . . and for sure, you'll want to sit at their feet and learn. And thanks to Marc, we have the chance to do just that.
