Baltimore Sun 4/13/08 "The slim book by Columbia-based psychiatrist Gordon Livingston has been a source of inspiration for many." "The author creates an aura of wisdom about a great many things." Quincy Jones, Details Online "I'm just a musician and a record producer. I'm not a psychiatrist. I don't understand all that stuff. We all got problems. But there's a great book out called Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart. Did you see that? That book says the statute of limitations has expired on all childhood traumas. Get your stuff together and get on with your life, man." Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 1/20/2010 "Delightful." Palm Beach Post, 11/28/10 "A book I not only like but respect." Palm Beach Post, 12/9/10 "[An] excellent self-help book."
