About the Book

It is just a few years ago that I started to write this book! “It’s Official!” Growing Old Sucks! My intent was simply to appeal to older folks of sixty-five years and older who have let their physical and mental muscles go to hell in a hand basket! However, I have to say at that point in time that I did not have a lot of enthusiasm or intensity for the task, which is why the book remained unfinished!

However, my life was turned upside down when my wonderful big sister fell victim to Alzheimer’s, such a devastating illness! My sister’s demise brought me to the shocking realization that many older people who, just like my sister, have not bothered to make any effort to maintain some level of physical and/or mental fitness could quite possibly fall victim to the same fate!

In that instant, I realized that although I could do nothing to help my sister, I felt obligated to do anything in my power to help the Alzheimer Foundation do whatever it could to hopefully find a cure at some point for this devastating illness! What sprang from the realization that I needed to do something was what had been missing for several years! My all-empowering why!

From that point, that awesome power enabled me to become energized, not only to finish writing this book, but it also empowered me to get my body and my mind into the best physical condition of my life! I now look and feel like a man in my forties! However, what truly inspires me is the fact that I now have a tried-and-tested formula to help other older folks to also get into the best shape of their adult lives!

Come join my crusade, and follow my lead! There’s plenty more room for you to become energized and to be in the best shape of your adult life too! Just as I have done!
