The Secret of Life: A Memoir Of Getting Younger

January 21, 2019

 

From a diagnosis of advanced stage cancer, to competing in a triathlon at the age of 68

Dr. Gilkis’ unique memoir and life-changing message is: physical activity is for everyone at any age and it can improve the quality of life as well as physical and mental health, dramatically. This message comes from Gilkis’ deep personal understanding due to his own choices, which he suggests everyone implement!

In this book, Dr. Gilkis dismantles the myth that sporting activities are only for the young and strong, or that it has to be an unpleasant and difficult task. It shows how sporting activities can be almost effortless while being a source of joy and satisfaction. “A little is a lot” is the message the author wants his readers to receive, so each and every one – at any age and physical state, can be encouraged to start!

 

REVIEW

What an inspiring book!

What an inspiring book! The Secret of Life: A Memoir Of Getting Younger by Dr. Zeev Gilkis is a unique biography with a life-changing message: ‘physical activity is for everyone at any age and it can improve the quality of life as well as physical and mental health, dramatically.’ The authors voice is so nurturing, funny and wise, you’ll feel as though you’ve made a new friend.

The authors intention is to encourage people in the second half of their lives (50+) to engage more in physical activities in order to improve their health, quality of life and overall prospects for the years to come. Although this book is geared toward the middle-aged reader, it contains precious nuggets of information that will benefit people of any age.

Highly recommended and a well- deserved five stars.
