From the Publisher
Infodad.com, 4/15/10
Change Your Age will not, of course, alter your chronological standing, but it can help you develop habits that, if they will not make you become younger, can make you feel younger than the calendar says you are—and that, after all, is one thing that people most value as time goes on.”

New York Book Festival winner in the "how-to" category

Curled Up with a Good Book, 5/26/10
Change Your Age is a gift that keeps on giving. The structure of the book is as thoughtfully designed as the method itself, and the instructions are simple enough for even a foggy-brained Boomer to follow. Now that we’ve outgrown the frantic and manic fitness fads of our middle years, Change Your Age is just the thing to keep us grooving smoothly for the rest of our lives.”

Sacramento Book Review, June 2010
“[Wildman’s] patient, nurturing tone makes it easy to follow, exploring the possibility of feeling and moving as though one is years younger…Recommended for people approaching middle age.”
