Acting on the premise that adults in their 60s need role models just as children and teenagers do, the author reveals, in chatty style, his notion of why life can begin at 60 by presenting stories of famous and not-famous older people. He touches on the length and quality of life, setting goals, adaptability, curiosity, retirement, etc. Although there are some good, practical, though commonsense and familiar, suggestions here, the book is really a series of mostly lengthy inspirational anecdotes that become tedious. The longest chapter is a recounting of Benjamin Franklin's life from age 59 to 84, yet the chapter on sex is barely three pages long.
