"(The) writing reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell and perhaps also Oliver Sacks...'The Wisdom Years' demonstrates a respect for humanity and an empathetic approach to an important period in every person's life. If you feel like you are stuck in familiar and demotivating patterns and experiencing life in negative ways at any age, 'The Wisdom Years' will provide potential pathways to improved mental and physical health and greater self-awareness" -- Simone Denereaz * Independent Australia *
"brilliant ... If you are of a certain age or mindset this book could change your life." -- Pat Paleeya
"a practical, thought provoking and life changing read."
