The subtitle sums this up best: A 102-Year-Old Doctor’s Six Secrets to Health and Happiness at Every Age. Who wouldn’t want to benefit from the guidance of someone who has lived that long? Even though the author is a (still practising) doctor, this isn’t really a health book or a book about longevity; it’s a book of life-lessons and advice on living from someone who has done a lot of it. The secrets aren’t a huge revelation. Some of them include Everything is Your Teacher, All Life Needs to Move and Spend Your Energy Wildly. However the book is crammed with stories and other examples that illuminate what she is talking about and these really uplift and encourage us. So this book is a lovely gentle read that will make us more positive about life and about finding contentment.
