In this entertaining and inspirational memoir, Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke shares his secret to staying resilient in old age.
Beloved Hollywood icon Dick Van Dyke will celebrate his 90th birthday in December 2015. He's an established legend, having starred in Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. And yet he's still keeping himself busy, entertaining America on television, in movies, on the stage, and on social media. Everyone wonders, "How does he do it?" For the first time, Van Dyke shares his secrets and tips on old age - just keep moving.
With a fun and folksy way of addressing its audience, Keep Moving serves as an instruction audiobook on how to embrace old age with a positive attitude. The chapters are filled with exclusive personal anecdotes that explore various themes on aging: how to adapt to the physical and social changes, deal with loss of friends and loved ones, stay current, fall in love again, and "keep moving" every day like there's no tomorrow.

Yes! Enjoyable story, positive information on aging, and typical Dick Van Dyke class.
Listening to Dick Van Dyke's stories. I smiled, I chuckled, and I laughed out loud.
A life lived well.
At first his voice is a little difficult because it has that aged roughness to it, but that went by the wayside quickly and it was all just Dick Van Dyke. Memorable.

I always enjoyed Dick van Dyke's movies & work and I found this book to be just terrific! I liked learning about his life. I appreciated the candor & honesty of his stories, and as a personal trainer I completely agree that to 'keep moving' is the best message of all. This book is full of wonderful nuggets and our world would be a better place if we all adhered to his suggestions.
What a tremendously invigorating piece of writing! Having the 89-year-old Dick Van Dyke read his own work with his grandfatherly conversational tone left me feeling as though I was sitting next to him in some comfortable retirement village collecting his pearls of wisdom. It made me more desirous to enjoy my life now as I have it now. It even made me more excited at the prospect of aging.
This is not a piece of literature, but it is full of timeless advice. At times, he was preaching to the choir, and at other times he was providing me with an entirely different perspective to adopt toward certain situations. The way he intertwined his tips for aging well with tidbits of his own life story served to create a remarkably fast-paced uplifting work that left me wanting to dance as much as he dances. This is one of the books that I will certainly return to again when I feel the need for a refreshing perspective on the life I am living.
I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Dick's stories and listening to his wise words of wisdom. I didn't want the book to end. I wonder if he'll adopt me as his granddaughter. I need more stories like these in my life.
I'm in my mid-thirties and although I am not considering myself elderly in any way I found this to be a very interesting read or listen as I happen to have done. this book really made me think about my dad and how know things are changing for him but not only just for him but how things are changing for me and ways to look at aging. great listen I'd listen to it again and I'd highly recommend.
"word from the wise yet still young"
read in true van dyke style! if ever you were wondering how to get to a good old age in style ... this is probably what you are looking for!! an absolute delight!!!!
"Right back to the start"
That is what I will be doing. This book was a joy and was genuinely sad when it came to the end. Got though it in a few days and was a joy to listen to. Has some great lessons for everyone and by a great man. If you only have one book this is it. It show be on the best sellers list for sure.
