    Elder Rage is a Book-on-the-Month Club selection (a caregiving book first), receiving 350+ 5-Star Amazon reviews, is required reading at numerous universities for courses in geriatric assessment and management, and considered for a film. It is a riveting, often LOL true story about Jacqueline Marcell's trials and tribulations managing the care of her challenging elderly father and sweet ailing mother.

    Cathy Steinruck says: "Alzheimer's help...Here it is. Fun funny and true."
    "Many belly laughs"

    What made the experience of listening to Elder Rage, or Take My Father... Please! the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this book on my commute to work. It was really funny - many times I laughed out loud and had to restrain myself.

    Even though I don't have parents with demenia, and in fact they are still quite healthy, I am interested in how we manage our growing "ageing population".

    87% of older people say they want to die in their homes. only 16% ever achieve that. How can we as a society support people stay in their homes longer?


    Who was your favorite character and why?


    Jackie has all the answers - and she has gone through a lot to get them. I hope her wisdom spreads wide and far.

    Would you listen to Shine again? Why?

    This is easy to listen too and has simple fundamental approaches that can be easily overlooked. Like, really getting to know your staff and helping them to get to know themselves. And how connectedness to the organization, the goals, the values, the team is critical for motivation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's uncomplicated, honest and inspiring

    The story of Mr Shine - loved his attitude

    Miss Pettigrew is a down-on-her-luck, middle-aged governess sent by her employment agency to work for a nightclub singer rather than a household of unruly children. Over a period of 24 hours, as she becomes caught up in the life of Delysia LaFloss, her own life is changed - forever. This charming, funny, light-hearted 1938 novel was a bestseller on its first appearance. Read by Academy Award winning actress Frances McDormand, who stars in the 2008 film as Miss Pettigrew.

    Holly C. Salley says: "Adorable"
    "Endearingly insightful of our insecurities"

    Would you listen to Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day again? Why?

    We are who we think we are (and who other people say we are) but at any moment we can choose to become who we want to be. I would like to be reminded of that.


    What other book might you compare Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day to and why?

    Jane Eyre - people see us differently than we see ourselves.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile - it 's warm and encouraging to read about the kindness of others.
