I am one of the lucky ones who got a signed copy of this book and I am so happy I got any type of it!! I am only 15 so I don't have to worry about aging and stuff but this book isn't just for older people, it taught me about living in the moment and being yourself. I recommend this book to absolutely any and everyone
