Reviews - What do customers think about Let Us Share: A Conversation on Growing Older?
Good perceptions on life and getting old Feb 25, 2008
The book is titled as a conversation, but is a monologue since the reader has no way of taking part in the conversation (if all of us start writing back to the author, she will be swamped).
The book is an attempt by the author to share her perceptions on a variety of topics. The topics are presented in a whimsical way (at least I could not find a pattern).
The style is good at some places and is like a sermon at others. Some of the many topics are likely to resonate with the reader.
I started this book and another at the same time, and while the other book was finished in 2 or 3 days, this book was not an easy read. I persevered and completed it now.
I would strongly recommend you to browse the book at a book store or check as much as possible online using Google's book search, and then decide whether it is for you.
A Great Read! Dec 10, 2007
It is true no one likes the thought of aging as it is often laced with fear and uncertainty. Sometimes we all need a little assurance, know that others are also feeling this way, and listen to some good old advise concerning it. That is what you will find in this heart-warming book by author, Dr. Lou Dunn Diekemper. Inside of this book our author covers topics such as: Aging, Birthdays, Grief, Holidays, Fears, and Friendship, to name only a few. Under each of these she honestly discusses the fears, problems and possible solutions that aging people face in these situations. She opens up her own heart and experiences giving the read that personal touch that is so important, especially in a topic such as this. I am a Baby Boomer child, and also the care-giver of my 91-year old mother and I will tell you this, "Let Us Share," really brought home some truths and brought a lot of peace to me as I read it. This book is a god source of strength and peace by someone in the know. We all grow old, books like this help us along the way. I truly enjoyed this book. Definitely recommended. Very good job. Very nice book.
