George Dawson, at age 98, enrolled in school to learn to read and graduated at age 101. Journalist Richard Glaubman set out to write an article about George Dawson then, together, they wrote a book. A book worth reading. Hints about how to live a long time and enjoy the whole time.
The book fits in with the Nuns Study, Aging with Grace, and many other reports about how exorcising your brain, to learn new things, helps keep your brain active and your body healthy. Simple healthy food helps. Some exorcise every day helps.
George never went to a gym because he always found things to do at home, work, plus playing with four wives and seven children.
His healthy diet was as simple as catching catfish from the local creek for breakfast.
Life Is So Good is a far better read than those
feel good books where rich young women whine about an unsatisfactory life then spend lots of money on some magic cure. The book about George Dawson is not written after 6 months of happiness and a publishing contract, his book was written without financial incentive and after 101 years of happiness.
The perfect read for the holiday season and before to write your new year resolutions.
