"It's fun to laugh along with these quick stories. And then you find one that makes you pause with its hidden wisdom or joy or comfort and it brings an even bigger smile to your face."
"Humorist Karen O'Connor has done it again with her latest look at the optimistic side of getting older. In It's Taken Years to Get This Old, a collection of sensational senior stories, O'Connor proves that with accruing years come more humor, more wisdom, more flexibility, more appreciation, and just more old-fashioned fun. Each vignette shines like a gem with flashes of hilarity, insight, and spiritual truth. Those fortunate enough to read O'Connor's wit and wisdom will no doubt declare, 'While it's taken years to get this old, I wonder what I was waiting for? This is the best time of my life!' And this is the best book to accompany it.
"I highly recommend anything O'Connor pens. This book is no exception."
