Over 60

Living life to the full

Joy Noble, David Bennett

Over 60
Life after sixty can represent a third of our lives.

Sitting at home half asleep? A burden on society? Never!

Twenty-five people over sixty have written stories about travelling, restoring a historic ruin, tracking the history of a grandfather in the First World War, bike riding in the French Alps, searching for opals, singing in the Sydney Opera House, volunteering in a museum, and more. The choice is endless!

Praise for Over 60:
'This compilation of 25 essays, each written by someone over 60, is for anyone on the verge of retirement who is unsure of what the future might hold. Above all, Over 60 is a celebration of the freedom to pursue life, hobbies and passionate interests with abandon, unshackled from the constraints of young families, careers and financial obligations.' - Carolyn Exton, The Weekly Times

'The book is a pleasure to read. This is one that you can put down and pick up again when there is a bit of spare moment. Do read it if you have time!' - TF, ARPA News

'Highly readable ... Acknowledging that an active interesting life is available to all if they are open to new encounters, opportunities and experiences is an uplifting idea that deserves promulgation!' - Dr Kathleen Huxley, Queensland Reviewers Collective

Joy Noble, AM, and David Bennett have both written and edited a number of books over the years. You guessed it; they are both over 60 and aiming to live life to the full.
