HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE YOU MAKE Lessons from a Year Among the Oldest Old

by | Read by Robert Petkoff

Personal Growth • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

While confronting life and love after divorce and the challenges of caring for an elderly parent, journalist John Leland undertook a transformative assignment on aging and living well. Robert Petkoff capably narrates Leland's close examination of six men and women who have lived long enough--each over 85 years--to offer surprising, and often reassuring, insights to those who are decades behind in their journeys. Though not flashy, Petkoff is a steady performer whose measured pacing allows each subject's story to unfold naturally against the background of Leland's personal inquiry. A particular highlight comes at the very end, when listeners get a chance to hear the actual voices of some of the men and women who have shared the lessons of their lives.
