Tim Love wrote The Book That Gets Better with Age: Observations Through the Looking Glass of Aging to help older folks process life – past, present and future – and assist young people in letting go of things that hinder them now so they can live a fuller life as they age. There are 32 chapters in the book, almost every one of which has an accompanying illustration which brings the concepts to life more. The font also increases one point in each chapter, so you go from about 10/12 font size to 40 or so. It is fun and makes reading feel fast and easy. Tim asked different people the question “What gets better with aging?” Answers like “comfort rather than fashion,” “enjoying the journey, rather than just racing to a destination,” “doing what you want instead of what you should do,” “having an easier time saying no,” show wisdom and insight that both old and young can appreciate.
I absolutely LOVE The Book That Gets Better with Age! Tim Love does an exceptional job presenting the different concepts. He has a great sense of humor and a good grasp of language. The chapters flow together and into the next so well, though each chapter can be read as a standalone. Also, select pieces of poetry and thoughtful quotes are sprinkled throughout the book. I find that I appreciate the wording and thoughts in these as I get older too. Poetry is a pain as a youngster. The flavor is so much better as you age – like a good wine. This book is so good. It will DEFINITELY go on my list of top favorite books. And I am already thinking of all the people that would appreciate getting it as a gift, including myself. Recommended for all ages.
