Unshaken Wonder: Becoming Playful Elders Together by Lori Kane is an exploration of what we need to do to be the elder that everyone needs. What is a playful elder? How do we become one of these and how do we tap into our own reserves of unshaken wonder? Lori Kane takes us on a journey deep into ourselves and into the heart of the playful elder. She shows us how to find joy in everything, to learn how to play again and how to live our lives in a restful manner. We need to learn to overcome what is thrown our way by life and we need to learn to just be; be who we are, not what others expect us to be. Lori bares her soul to us, she throws curse words our way and she brings us a book where every page is something very different – a book that will get you laughing, crying, screaming, and playing. A book that gets you to live your life.

Unshaken Wonder: Becoming Playful Elders Together by Lori Kane is a self-help book like no other. It made me laugh, it made me cry but most of all, it made me stand back and take a good long look at my own life ... so if that was your intention, Lori Kane, you more than succeeded! This is the type of book that you can keep going back to, that you can learn something new from every time you pick it up. It is written in an engaging manner, a tone of voice that is friendly and personal and that you just want to listen to, and that’s what this book achieves; you can almost hear the words being spoken as you read them. Fabulous book, a real page turner and something so very different.
