“Your Journey to Aging Well” with help from the friendly Sally Handlon

Your Journey to Aging Well Drink Move Eat Sleep Sally Handlon

Sally Handlon has not written a “self-help” book with Your Journey to Aging Well: Drink, Move, Eat, Sleep. She has written a guide full of information, tips, and relatable personal stories that make reading this book feel more like having a cup of coffee with a friend who is genuinely concerned for your health.

The book starts with a biology recap of body systems, which is important because it creates a relevance for you the reader about the reasoning and language utilized in the suggested whys and hows that come later in the book.

If You can Only Read the Autobiography of One Mercury Seven Astronaut, Make it DEKE!

DEKE US Manned Space from Mercury to the Shuttle

Donald K. “Deke” Slayton may not be the household name he should be, but he has had a hand in shaping history as we have come to know it. He was one of the original Mercury Seven, unfortunately, he was the one who didn’t get a flight, but he did eventually make it into space, and in the meantime, he ran the Astronaut Office, and the story for how he got there, his impressions, his knowledge, perspective, and his stories, are second to none.

All of this is what makes Deke! worth your time.

Why I Read Lee Mack’s Mack the Life… And Why YOU Should too!

Lee Mack - Mack the Life Book Review

I’ll admit it. I only know Lee Mack from YouTube. At first, he was a guest on some panel shows I was watching before I went into a deeper dive of panel shows and enjoyed him on Would I Lie To You?

That show plus all the guest appearances is one of the reasons I picked up David Mitchell’s Back Story: A Memoir, and it was also enough of a reason to pick up the other team leader’s autobiography; Mack the Life by Lee Mack.
