    Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

    A. Stephens says: "Excellent information"
    "Don't wait until next year to start!"
    Overall

    Aimed at men, it was a good mix of motivation and the "whys" of how the program works. The authors don't tell you specifically what to do to exercise (there are plenty of other books for that), but they damn well tell you why you shouldn't wait another day to start. If you're over 50, 60 or 70 it's not too late and in fact it's aimed at you. If you're under 50 (but getting close) you'll see the long term benifits of beginning a long-term exercise program and looking at your life now to prepare for the "last third" and making that last third as much fun as the middle third!

    Story

    Travis McKinley is an ordinary man living an ordinary life - he has a job that he despises, a marriage that has lost its passion, children from whom he feels disconnected, and at age 50, a sense that he has accomplished nothing of consequence with his life. But on Christmas Day, he goes out to play a round of golf, and for the first time, he finds himself in the "zone". He sees the putting line that has eluded him for years.

    Marguerite says: "Nice feel good story."
    "Sweet story. Non-golfers will like this too."

    What made the experience of listening to Miracle on the 17th Green the most enjoyable?

    It was well written, well read and held my interest for the length of the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Miracle on the 17th Green?

    It was interesting to note that there are several times you're on the 17th green and something spectacular happens, but it isn't the miracle (yet).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this in one day, but over two sessions. It's short enough to do in one sitting.
