THE ELDER Testimonials

Co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

"The distinction of Eldering is completely contrary to ‘retirement.’ Eldering is about giving back to the community through wisdom and experience. We Baby Boomers owe it to our country’s younger generations, and generations yet to come, not to become a burden, but to be a valuable contribution to our society. Read this book, reconsider the meaning of your own retirement, and learn how to become an Elder! Your family and your community will thank you.”

Author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"Aging gives us the opportunity for another career, the chance to express ourselves in ways we could not as we raised a family or built a business, and the opening to show those who follow us that there is another way to age that transcends ‘retirement.’”

Author of The Soul of Money and Founder of the Soul of Money Institute

“Jim Selman and Dr. Marc Cooper have written the quintessential book for our time on aging. This message will resonate deeply with millions of people now entering their elder years, and will powerfully inform their children, grandchildren, colleagues, and friends on this magical human journey. This is the right book at the right time, with a message so vital that everyone who is awake and engaged in the world will benefit from reading it and embodying the message. Congratulations to Jim and Marc for this brilliant contribution to our life and times.”

Transformational Speaker and Teacher

“All of us are getting older. In mid-life, many of us start to fear a future of decline, dependence and isolation. The Elder is a wonderful fable about transforming our fear of aging, where aging is not a curse but an opportunity to impart our wisdom and knowledge to future generations.”
