This is like visiting with an elderly man in a retirement home. I enjoy listening to him talk, his enthusiasm is still catching. Some stories about his life, lots of advice about living and aging, a longing for the good old days and ways (he is firmly against living in the past though). It's okay, and even fun at times, but after awhile you start looking at the clock to see if it's too soon to leave.

His energy and joy for living come through in this book, along with a whole lot of positive thinking. ( )

Actor and perennial song-and-dance man, Dick Van Dyke, looks back on his 89 years to reminisce and dispense homespun tips for aging. Written in an easy vernacular, you can almost hear his voice and picture in your mind him leaning into the microphone to chat away. Van Dyke attributes his longevity to physical activity -- Keep Moving! -- and continued engagement in life. This includes a late marriage to a woman decades his junior. His energy, warmth, good humor and memories of Carl Reiner, Mary, Tyler Moore, filming Disney classics and more are a delight. You will find yourself drawn in by his non-nonsense but generous view of life.

The publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Dick Van Dyke shares his optimistic outlook as an invigorating tonic to all who need a reminder that life should be lived with enthusiasm, despite what the calendar says.

Dyke at 90 has more life left in him than most. This book is his musings and observations on life. He discusses how he doesn't really know how to dance. How he loves his Pandora app even though he doesn't know what an App is. He takes everything in stride. Some of the best advice he has in the book is enjoy the moment. Overall this was a very enjoyable read. ( )
