OLD AGE A Beginner's Guide

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Danny Campbell

Personal Growth • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Political journalist Kinsley, who revealed he has Parkinson’s disease in 2002, reads the foreword and introduction of his surprisingly uplifting meditation on aging. When narrator Danny Campbell takes over, his tone and vocal maturity sound a lot like Kinsley’s. Adding the appealing texture of his utterly authentic phrasing, Campbell's performance is ideal for this intelligent book. The writer’s neurological symptoms jump-started his awareness of the slide toward death, so he used his condition to examine the myriad ways people deal not just with dying but with how well they live. Writing as both thoughtful memoirist and diligent reporter, Kinsley offers convincingly cheery insights and satisfying perspectives. With Danny Campbell reading, the book’s message acquires the power to captivate an even wider audience. T.W.
