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.
