"Forget reading about the Forbes 400, you will learn and be inspired more by the Centenarian 30! This book is a must read for all ages." - Dr. Peter Kash, Ed.D/MBA, biotech venture capitalist and international best selling author of Freedom from Disease

Meet thirty remarkable centenarians from across the USA who generously share their lives, lifestyles and words of wisdom gleaned from a century of experiences. How did they live so long and so well? Was it purely genetics? Did they have a good diet, exercise, smoke or drink? What did they all do in their 80s, 90s and even 100s to stay busy, healthy and happy?

Learn from those who lived the longest and the strongest, including:

  • Besse Cooper - 116 - World's oldest person
  • Dr. Leila Denmark - 114 - Co-developer of the whooping cough vaccine, longest working pediatrician
  • Irving Kahn - 106 - World's oldest active investment professional
  • Errie Ball - 102 - Pro Golfer and only surviving member of the first Masters Tournament
  • Ebby Halliday - 101 - Founder and chairperson of one of the largest realty companies in America
  • Bel Kaufman - 101 - Renowned novelist, lecturer and humorist

Other centenarians celebrated range from homemakers to heroines, artists to athletes, barbers to bookkeepers, each revealing unique and valuable insights that will certainly enrich your life.

Peek through a window of American history. See through their eyes and hearts what it was like to live through the Great Depression, World War I and II, poverty and persecution while coming out on top with grace, dignity and joy.

Author Gwen Weiss-Numeroff is a former advertising executive turned nutritionist, lifestyle coach and professional speaker. Her mother's sudden death at 70 inspired Gwen to launch a 2-year quest to find the secrets to vibrant longevity from those centenarians actually living the dream.

Extraordinary Centenarians in America offers you priceless advice, plus comfort and relief to know that aging does not have to be feared.

    I was curious to check out ┬┐Extra-ordinary Centenarians In Amer

    I was curious to check out “Extra-ordinary Centenarians In America:Their Secrets To Living A Long Vibrant Life” by Gwen Weiss Numeroff due to my own dream to live a healthy and joyful life until at least 2078. The only reason why I say dream is because I am humbly aware that a human goal of what desired age to reach may sometimes be different from what is spiritually intended. I really enjoyed that the author interviewed men and women from various walks of life and generously shared their advice. There was so much exquisite information given on what to do to reach the goal that it is hard for me to list what were the best tips.
    However, the Irving Kahn,Ebby Halliday, and Loretta Hodges interviews were the ones that reminded me to be thankful for what I have along my journey and goal to live a long life. Irving Kahn mentioned how important it is to keep staying engaged and curious in life. Ebby Halliday emphasized the importance of avoiding permanent retirement. Loretta Hodges discussed being satisfied with the blessings that one already has and sharing. There are also many other heartfelt and helpful interviews available in this book. “Extraordinary Centenarians In America” by Gwen Weiss Numeroff is best for those who want information on what to do to fulfill goals of living longer and/or more rewarding lives.
