Meet thirty remarkable centenarians from across the USA who generously share their lives, lifestyles and words of wisdom gleaned from a century of experiences.
How did they live so long and so well? Was it purely genetics? Did they have a good diet, exercise, smoke or drink? What did they all do in their 80s, 90s and even 100s to stay busy, healthy and happy?
Learn from those who lived the longest and the strongest, including:
Besse Cooper, 116, World's oldest person
Dr. Leila Denmark, 114, Co-developer of the whooping cough vaccine, longest working pediatrician
Irving Kahn, 106, World's oldest active investment professional
Errie Ball, 102, Pro Golfer and only surviving member of the first Masters Tournament
Ebby Halliday, 101, Founder and chairperson of one of the largest realty companies in America
Bel Kaufman, 101, Renowned novelist, lecturer and humorist
Other centenarians celebrated range from homemakers to heroines, artists to athletes, barbers to bookkeepers, each revealing unique and valuable insights that will certainly enrich your life.
Peek through a window of American history, through their eyes and hearts to experience living through the Great Depression, World War I and II, poverty and persecution while coming out on top with grace, dignity and joy.
Author Gwen Weiss-Numeroff is a former advertising executive turned nutritionist, lifestyle coach and motivational speaker. Her mother's sudden death at 70 inspired Gwen to launch a 2-year quest to find the secrets to vibrant longevity from those centenarians actually living the dream.
