    How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life
    Baby Boomer Alert Get ready for the next prime of your life! Today we're living so much longer and more productively that age sixty has truly become the new age forty-the prime of life when our careers are in full swing, our minds are at their most creative, and our passions burn their hottest. -Mark Victor Hansen and Art Linkletter So how do we ensure that our bodies remain fit, our minds alert and creative, our finances stable-even growing-throughout our senior years? TV icon Art Linkletter (incredibly active in several enterprises at the age of 94) and Chicken Soup for the Soul® cocreator Mark Victor Hansen team up to show us how. Much more than a pep talk about maintaining a youthful attitude in our Second Prime, How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life provides tools we can use: strategies, self-tests, worksheets and resources, plus dozens of inspiring stories and humorous anecdotes. Woven together by the authors' own invincible spirits, these empowering principles come alive as Hansen and Linkletter motivate us to find greater purpose and passion in what we do, making the rest of our lives the best ever.

    How to Be Like Walt

    How to Be Like Walt
    Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life
    An inspiring biography of one of the most influential and beloved figures of the 21st century, based on more than a thousand interviews. "I've read every book that has ever been written about Walt Disney, going back to some that were published in the 1930s. [How to Be Like Walt] is by far the most enjoyable to read of them all!" Tim O'Day, Disney Scholar "How to Be Like Walt is a fitting tribute to Walt's memory and an important contribution to the Disney legacy . . . Now more than ever, we need people with the qualities Walt had: optimism, imagination, creativity, leadership, integrity, courage, boldness, perseverance, commitment to excellence, reverence for the past, hope for tomorrow, and faith in God." Art Linkletter How to Be Like is a "character biography" series: biographies that also draw out important lessons from the life of their subjects. In this new book-by far the most exhaustive in the series-Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history. While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this book takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. For the first time, the book pulls together all the various strands of Disney's life into one straightforward, easy-to-read tale of imagination, perseverance, and optimism. Far from a preachy or oppressive tome, this book scrapes away the minutiae to capture the true magic of a brilliant maverick.
