People casually use this term; this changed my life. In reality, they're usually exaggerating, or it's hyperbole. I can say for Ayse Birsel and her program, it did change my life in a huge way.

This is a most unusual book both in its message and design. The message? Take charge of your life to ensure happiness and contentment, for all ages and lifestyles. The design? Big and bold to match the message, easy to read big letters to compensate for all that tiny unreadable lettering on medicine and instructions where some company wants to save some money on paper. A thoughtful, powerful book in both message and design.

Design the Long Life You Love makes visible a profound revelation—across our lives, what we want, what brings meaning and joy, remains fundamentally the same. HOW we experience these truths—Friendship, Love, Purpose, and Wellbeing—changes! The tools in this book allow all of us to make these truths visible in our own lives. Take a moment and be your own “Designer for a Day,” a week, a month, a lifetime.

If you want to create the long game for your life, read this book. Ayse Birsel turns her research on aging into essential life lessons we can all use, at any age.

You'll likely have a long life. Don't leave making it a good life up to chance.
