Overview

“Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you should have been.” —David Bowie
 
Sixty is the new fifty, seventy’s the new sixty, and older is getting younger every day. With fun, forward-looking, and inspiring quotes, So Who’s Counting is the ideal gift for baby boomers or anyone reaching a major age milestone. Instead of cloying sentimentality or the standard sagging-body-part jokes, it strikes the perfect balance of humor, guidance, reflection, bon mots. Quotes are divided into eight sections, such as “As Old as You Feel,” “Laughter: The Best Prescription,” and “Aged to Perfection.” So Who’s Counting is all about aging with gusto and celebrating what lies ahead.

Emily and Erin met in a milestone year, when Emily turned 60, and Erin, 65. Together, they are exploring what it’s like getting older today, where people like themselves prefer rock ‘n roll to rocking chairs, and get up every day looking forward to reinvention, not retirement. They’re thinking about smart aging, and they want to spread the word.
 
Emily lives in Sausalito, California, and Erin lives in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

So Who's Counting is a little book of motivational quotes that will inspire both men and women of all ages. Women, I guess, would appreciate this more because we are more conscious of our age than men. Also, I consider this a great gift idea especially to those who are already in their golden age; this will motivate them to still strive to achieve whatever they want to accomplish.

This book is a compilation of quotes that remind us that "aging" is a state of mind. Many of these quotes were well known but some were not. All of them were fun to read and fit the theme of this book. Some are inspiring in a fun way and they are often quite sassy! You could read through the entire book in one sitting but you'll want to read through it again and again because these quotes are so entertaining. Likewise, you may only want to read a few at a time. It is entirely up to the reader. In addition to the wonderful compilation of quotes, the book itself is lovely. The color schemes used are shades of blues and greens that blend well but are still fun! It would be a wonderful gift. Overall, I think this book is packaged well and the content hits the mark for its target audience. I'm 51 myself and I really enjoyed it! Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
