"People have been fascinated by longevity ever since learning of Ponce de Leon’s search in Florida, five centuries ago, for the fountain of youth. In the twentieth century, the search for longevity, and the good health that makes it possible, had been enhanced by discoveries such as antibiotics and other lifesaving drugs, heroic medical interven­tions, which included organ transplants, heart pacemakers and other life-prolonging devices, the emergence of preventive medicine, and a new focus on wellness. On an individual level, people were realizing that, to an ever-increasing extent, they were able to influence life-style factors that could lead to a healthier and longer life—perhaps even a life of 100 years or more." (Opening paragraph from "Centenarians, The Bonus Years," by Lynn Peters Adler, Health Press, Santa Fe, NM, 1995)

Longevity itself is one of the greatest advances of the 20th century, adding approximately 30 years to the average life span. Now, in the 21st century, with the advent of even greater medical advances and the promise shown by stem cell and genetic breakthroughs, the chances for an even greater increase in longevity seems possible.

Active centenarians are our role models. They are helping to redefine aging in new and inspirational ways.

Authors: Steve Franklin, Lynn Peters Adler
 
A thoroughly enthralling book that proves the truth of the adage, "with age comes wisdom."

Based on video recorded interviews and extensive surveys of more than 500 Centenarians, this unforgettable book brings you into a world few human beings have ever known. What must it be like to have lived an entire century—and not just any century, but one of the most fertile, productive, cataclysmic, revolutionary hundred-year periods in the history of the human race?

Imagine having navigated all of life's personal milestones against the backdrop of the Jazz Age, the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Space Age, the Digital Age, and 9/11; what stories you would have to tell! In their own words, and with no small measure of good humor, these remarkable men and women tell their stories and share their insights on life, business, making it and losing it, great sorrow and joy—and having lived to tell the tale.
  • Distills the wisdom and wit of 500 centenarians into six sections covering the passage of time, career, money, time management, secrets of longevity, and capturing and sharing wisdom
  • Full of timeless advice, like "Money cannot make you, but it can break you," with anecdotes about savings, debt, and investing for the long-run—the really, really long run
  • Based on over 500 taped interviews and extensive questionnaire surveys developed and conducted by noted experts Steve Franklin and Lynn Peters Adler
Editorial Review
"If you want to win with money or life, you need to take a good look at other people who are winning. If you want to know how to win over the long haul, you need to talk to people who have a lot of life experience under their belts and who've still come out ahead. That's exactly what you'll get in Celebrate 100."
Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host

ABC Barbara Walters Special - Aging & Longevity

The ABC Barbara Walters Special on longevity aired in April of 2008. I was asked two years ago to participate in this project and it was a wonderful, exhilarating experience. It was both an honor and a privilege to work with Ms. Walters and the talented and caring team of professionals on her staff. I invite you to read the "Behind the Scene" story on our website. Here's the link: http://www.adlercentenarians.org/ABCWalters_special.htm
