Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Greer Mulholland | 2/8/2014

    " How should one grow old? This little book tries to answer the question that we all will face (if we are lucky enough to live to be old) through the writings of Epicurus and other philosophers. Thought provoking, often humorous, and filled with vignettes from beautiful Hydra. Simple pleasures, living in the moment, friendship and gentle circumspection may be the answer. "Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance"~Epicurus "

    " a philosophical glance at aging thru the eyes of a sentigenarian while vacationing in Greece. A trip he booked rather than getting dentures / dental implants. Short but meandering, meant to be read slowly. For those who'd like to shake the "forever young" mantle. "

    " Delightful book on how to lead a simple fulfilled life and mindfulness in old age. "

    " A great little book! For those who may look ahead and decide that preserving "the prime of life" is less important than living each and every stage of life to its fullest. Aging is not something to fear! "
