Description de l'ouvrage

26 juin 2012
They can be seen in communities throughout the country-- those amazingly hale, hearty, and happy older folks who are having fun, have a million friends, are sharp as tacks, and look like they'll live forever. Their secret-- revealed and explained in MASTER CLASS-- is an active lifestyle that blends moving, thinking, socializing and creating.

Through inspirational stories from active seniors, supported by the latest research in the fields of psychology and neuro-science, MASTER CLASS shows how to build an enriching lifestyle on the foundation of favorite activities. Author Peter Spiers, Senior Vice President of Road Scholar, the top-notch life-long learning organization, provides easy-to-follow charts that allow readers to break out of their daily routines into Moving/Thinking/Socializing/Creating. By filling the gaps with a selection from 25 "Master Activities," such as learning a musical instrument, playing tennis, volunteering and more, they'll create a happy, holistic, brain-healthy lifestyle that's rich and meaningful.

Revue de presse

"...An inspiring resource."

--- Wall Street Journal

"Peter Spiers's new book MASTER CLASS is a wonderful exploration of the journey to be traveled by the Baby Boom Generation, the 76 million of us who are awakening to a wonderful opportunity of self-discovery. The book is filled with personal stories, tools, and practical advice on how to live all life to the fullest, how to remain engaged and a lifelong learner, and to make the right choices for successful aging. As one whose career is dedicated to educating the public on the miracle of the human brain and how to promote brain health across the lifespan, I recommend MASTER CLASS and salute Peter on a moving contribution."

---Paul D. Nussbaum, Ph.D., author of Save Your Brain: The 5 Things You Must Do to Keep Your Brain Young and Sharp

"Legions of Baby Boomers, if they take command of their lives, can experience unprecedented satisfaction and longevity in retirement. MASTER CLASS will show them the way."

---Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., author of A New Purpose: Redefining Money, Family, Work, Retirement and Success

"MASTER CLASS is the consummate how-to guide for every baby boomer and beyond to mold their vision of positive aging into reality. Step-by-step it provides a practical and concise road map to achieving optimal personal growth and well-being as we age."

---Marc E. Agronin, M.D., author of How We Age: A Doctor's Journey into the Heart of Growing Old

Terrific book!

I'm 58. A few months ago I realized that my daily routine had become way too comfortable and, well, easy. I have a good job that I'm good at. I swim, do yoga or run every day. On weekends I garden, do projects and invite the kids over for Sunday dinner. I love my wife and we are very happy.

I also wake up every morning with aches, pains and stiffness. I have a fairly short list of things I like to do and I feel I'm losing my mental edge. I'd just as soon walk away from a political argument than join it, and I give up on the extra hard Sudokus way too quickly.
I'm thinking it's time to shake things up a bit, so I headed over to Amazon to search for ideas Turns out there are tons of books related to this. I found books on the aging brain, improving mental activity, and memory, books on improving the social life of empty nesters, books on middle aged "safe" exercise, books on" Happiness Theory" (really?), books on the importance of spirituality, and on and on.

As I browsed Amazon, I realized that my real question was one of balance. Is there any guidance as to how much time I should be spending doing exercise, vs. Socializing, vs. challenging my mind, vs. spending time with family etc? Is there a recommended balance of activities that will properly exercise and stimulate my mind, body and spirit?

Ultimately my Amazon browsing brought me to this book. It had just been published and there were no reviews but I bought it anyway based on the description. I just finished reading it and started to put its suggestions into daily practice. (learning Japanese and joining a choir).

This is not a guru book filled with philosophy and feel-goodisms (although some Gurus are reviewed). This is a book full of concrete advice and exercises that promote a "hosistic blending of socializing, moving, thinking and creating".

The prose is clear and straightforward. All in all, it's an excellent and fun read that you will likely find yourself going back to many times.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Master your life and your aging for greater satisfaction and joy ... yep, this book will help. 28 juin 2012

Perhaps there has never been any generation more interested in having a successful and happy journey through old age than the current wave of seniors -- the Baby Boomers. This group is the least likely to simply take what comes -- they want the very best that old age can offer. That's the purpose of this book: to equip aging Boomers with the mental tools and habits necessary for a fruitful and fulfilling seniority.

The author takes the reader beyond brain health, into the world of true mental health, which necessarily involves new and stimulating experiences -- learning and travel being at the top of the list. But what are the first steps? The opportunities are so vast that the initial stages of this period of potential joy can be daunting. But despair, disappointment, and regret are not requirements of old age.

Drawing from real life stories of successful aging, the author provides a "road map" toward happiness for seniors. This means seizing life and chasing dreams. It means staying engaged in stimulating and fulfilling activities. And it means doing everything that's possible to maximize happiness -- and there are the real-life stories, based on hundreds of hours of phone interviews, to show you the way.

On days when you're feeling a bit, well, "weatherbeaten," and maybe want to be able to get the blood pumping without actually getting... out of bed... check out Get Fit in Bed by Tartell and Kavanau. And for an invigorating and inspiring -- even life-giving -- view of the world, check out Reenchantment of Everyday Life by Thomas Moore.

I am slowly reading your words having been diagnosed with MS 5 years ago. Within 18 months, I went from a cane, to 3 walkers, a wheelchair, scooter, and hopefully this great battery operated wheelchair.Yes,we do lose family and friends, but new friends and great books add SO MUCH!

I thought it was a bit pompous and rather boring.
I had hoped it would be helpful. I sent it back.

I would buy the paperback version if I were redoing my purchase - for the book to truly be effective, you need to fill in the charts and ratings - depending upon the format of a paperback it would be easier. A spiral bound edition would be perfect.
