Growing Old Is Not for Sissies II: Portraits of Senior Athletes Reviews
Growing old is not for Sissies is a wonderful book of black and white photographs of older athletes. I particularly enjoyed the comments which many of the active athletes write. A great gift for all ages!! Etta Clark is truely an incredible photographer.
I've bought the first book for so many friends as they've reached landmark birthdays, (50's) I decided to get book II for our friend's 75th! Both books are great reminder of just how much ability we have at all stages of life. It's about how much you can do, no matter what your age, instead of viewing age as a limitation.
As a professional photographer, I can really appreciate the beautiful and revealing black and white portraits of Etta Clark. Yes, the writings match the quality of the photographs as well.
I had to edit my initial 3 star rating from this morning to 5 stars after revisiting the book this afternoon. (Must've been my meds or the wrong book first time around.) This is an inspiring read and view for anyone who's AARP eligible. If you're below that age and a couch potato, it might motivate you to get off your tush and move. Thank you Etta Clark. (If I ever find a reasonably priced Growing Old I, I'm nabbing it.)
Etta Clark's first book was groundbreaking and the second book, following up with some of her prior subjects and adding new, was nothing short of inspiring. So true that Growing Old is Not for Sissies....but there is no better way to approach it than head on and loving the life you have.
Was a gift for a friend's 70th birthday. She liked it.
Insiprational - Aging is inevitable, but the athletes pictured in these pages inspired me to keep after the work it takes to age well.
