We all know them and see them in our communities - those amazingly hale, hearty and happy older folks who glide from doubles tennis and a class in digital photography in the morning, to their book club and a board meeting at the community food bank in the afternoon, to a duplicate bridge tournament or choir practice in the evening. We marvel at their stamina and high spirits. They're having fun, they've got a million friends, they're sharp as tacks and they look like they'll go on that way forever.
You've heard the expression "Sixty is the new forty" and these are the people they're talking about...baby boomers and beyond.

These people didn't get the way they are by consuming the latest fad in dietary supplements or by training their brains with computer software. Their secret - revealed and explained in MASTER CLASS: LIVING LONGER, STRONGER AND HAPPIER - is an active lifestyle that blends moving, thinking, socializing, and creating. These four key elements can be found in 25 core activities or "master activities" that utilize two or more of the elements in fun and exciting ways. For example, ballroom dancing incorporates all four of the elements. Some other examples of "master activities" include learning an instrument or a foreign language, digital photography, genealogy and volunteer work.

Readers will: * Hear inspirational stories from active seniors about the joy and fulfilment they find in their rich and active daily lives. *Learn why activities that combine moving, thinking, socializing and creating are key to successful aging, vitality, cognitive health and happiness. * Learn how to enrich activities they love and are already doing and turn them into building blocks of an enriching lifestyle.

With an introduction from a leading brain expert and careful references to relevant research throughout, MASTER CLASS: LIVING LONGER, STRONGER AND HAPPIER is supported by the latest research in the fields of psychology and neuro-science, while built on the concrete foundation of the real experiences of real people. People who are living active, happy and healthy lives - and loving every minute.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Peter Spiers's new book MASTER CLASS is a wonderful exploration of the journey to be traveled by the Baby Boom Generation, the 76 million of us who are awakening to a wonderful opportunity of self-discovery. The book is filled with personal stories, tools, and practical advice on how to live all life to the fullest, how to remain engaged and a lifelong learner, and to make the right choices for successful aging. As one whose career is dedicated to educating the public on the miracle of the human brain and how to promote brain health across the lifespan, I recommend MASTER CLASS and salute Peter on a moving contribution. - Paul D. Nussbaum, Ph.D., author of Save Your Brain: The 5 Things You Must Do to Keep Your Brain Young and Sharp

Legions of Baby Boomers, if they take command of their lives, can experience unprecedented satisfaction and longevity in retirement. MASTER CLASS will show them the way. - Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., author of A New Purpose: Redefining Money, Family, Work, Retirement and Success

MASTER CLASS is the consummate how-to guide for every baby boomer and beyond to mold their vision of positive aging into reality. Step-by-step it provides a practical and concise road map to achieving optimal personal growth and well-being as we age. - Marc E Agronin, M.D., author of How We Age: A Doctor's Journey into the Heart of Growing Old
