"O'Connor's wit shines in this light look at aging."
"Karen O'Connor writes with gentle humor and genuine insight about the blessings and difficulties of aging. Gettin' Old Ain't For Wimps! is targeted at the senior citizen, but there is not a person alive who won't find a chuckle on every single page. The gift edition pairs Karen's hilarious prose with fresh, humorous photographs in an irresistible package. I recommend this book to everyone in our congregation who is 'of a certain age'--or has a relative they love who is!"

I for one have arrived there and so appreciate the humorous encouragement I receive from reading this excellent book."

"I had so many good laughs as I identified with most of the book! Karen has a wonderful talent to write about a not-too-pleasant subject (aging--especially if you are there) and keeping it in perspective and also truthful with a chuckle. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. This is another great book from a very dear writer."
