Overview

At the Bolder Media Group, we tell stories of ordinary people living extraordinary lives. Our mission is to smash the stereotypes of age and the limitations of possibility. We have found that one of the most powerful ways to illustrate what’s possible is to share the stories of centenarians -- anyone who is 100 years or older. What makes centenarians so unique, so fascinating and so worth studying is the fact that they are not simply 80-year-olds who have endured 20 more years of physical and mental decline. Most centenarians don’t suffer the chronic illnesses associated with age until shortly before dying. Somehow they have managed to maintain a quality of life that makes life worth living until the very end. But how have they done it and why don’t more of us know about it?

This book is not based upon surveys, scientific research or the opinions of scholars. This book is based upon our extensive, first-hand experience interviewing and observing active centenarians, nonagenarians and octogenarians for our national TV and radio shows.

We have interviewed hundreds of men and women who are or were too busy enjoying life to pay attention to society telling them that they’re supposed to be dying. These Rock Stars of Aging are as diverse as any group could be but as we talked and as we listened, we learned. Many common denominators were revealed. This book is about those common threads. Threads that when woven together helped create not only a long life but, far more importantly, a life filled with passion and joy. A life without fear and regret.

Definitely worth the read. Not some magical secret, but lots of good common sense. Nothing so hard to do that everyone could follow the basic tenets for a long life.
