Holiday Book Give-away Contest!

December 15, 2010

Holiday Book Give-Away Contest! I’m giving away two copies of What Should I Do With The Rest Of My Life? True Stories of Finding Success, Passion and New Meaning in the Second Half of Life.

The book’s twelve intimate, inspiring stories of second-half success celebrate people who refused to let illness, stereotypes, and assumptions about aging stop them from realizing their dreams of becoming, among other things, an artist, athlete, activist, inventor, entrepreneur, dancer, teacher, filmmaker, psychologist, writer— even the nation’s oldest park ranger.

Here’s some of what’s been said about What Should I Do With The Rest Of My Life?:

“Bruce Frankel’s book is an illuminating essay on possibility. I hope it is widely read so that its necessity becomes obsolete, as the number of people who take on the second half of life with the same vigor as his inspiring subjects multiples exponentially.”
— Harvard social psychologist Ellen Langer, author of Mindfulness and Becoming an Artist

“Journalist Bruce Frankel’s “What Should I Do With the Rest of My Life?’’ ebulliently argues that joy doesn’t have an expiration date…. Even better, this wise and inspiring book hands down an important message: Happiness is abundant at any age, and only you can limit your options.”
— Caroline Leavitt, The Boston Globe

“Bruce Frankel’s upbeat, inspiring, timely book shows how taking a risk and fighting to find a passionate career — at any age — can reinvigorate your life…”
— Susan Shapiro, author of Speed Shrinking and Only As Good as Your Word

“In this book of intimate narratives, Bruce Frankel introduces a host of unforgettable people who have bravely embraced a new sense of possibility late in life, with almost unimaginable success, passion and purpose. The book captures the singular lives of everyday, yet extraordinary “late bloomers” who have bravely embraced new callings, discovered unforeseen pleasures, and overthrown the usual expectations of age.”
— Dorri Olds’s Top Ten Non-Fiction List, Resident Magazine
