This book deserves way more than FIVE stars! As an avid Chicken Soup for the Soul fan, I laughed my way through this book. Skydiving? Retiring at Costco? Falling in Love? This particular book is just absolutely a cut above ALL the other CSS books. I used to have a favorite, but now I have a NEW one. And it is INSPIRATION FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART. I heard Chicken Soup gets about 50,000 stories when they write a new book. If this is the BEST, I absolutely want the second, third, and fourth volumes. If you have never read Chicken Soup, or never read another.... This ONE is the BEST!

This book is written for the young-at-heart, age 60+. It has 101 entertaining stories about seniors enjoying their best years. I realize that I am not even halfway to this glorious age yet but I still dived in excited to read what I could look forward to. Most of the stories were very humorous and had me chuckling aloud. The stories are about new passions, new adventures, finding love and so much more. I never though getting old would be so much fun and I now look forward to it. Most of the stories in the book had more adventure that what I have experienced in my 26 years of life. Life does begin at 60...the freedom, the excitement. If you are at or near this wonderful age be sure to pick up this book whether just for amusement or to get some really great ideas to make yourself feel invigorated.
