A thoroughly enthralling book that proves the truth of the adage, "with age comes wisdom."

Based on video recorded interviews and extensive surveys of more than 500 Centenarians, this unforgettable book brings you into a world few human beings have ever known. What must it be like to have lived an entire century—and not just any century, but one of the most fertile, productive, cataclysmic, revolutionary hundred-year periods in the history of the human race?

Imagine having navigated all of life's personal milestones against the backdrop of the Jazz Age, the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Space Age, the Digital Age, and 9/11; what stories you would have to tell! In their own words, and with no small measure of good humor, these remarkable men and women tell their stories and share their insights on life, business, making it and losing it, great sorrow and joy—and having lived to tell the tale.

  • Distills the wisdom and wit of 500 centenarians into six sections covering the passage of time, career, money, time management, secrets of longevity, and capturing and sharing wisdom
  • Full of timeless advice, like "Money cannot make you, but it can break you," with anecdotes about savings, debt, and investing for the long-run—the really, really long run
  • Based on over 500 taped interviews and extensive questionnaire surveys developed and conducted by noted experts Steve Franklin and Lynn Peters Adler

Editorial Reviews

"If you want to win with money or life, you need to take a good look at other people who are winning. If you want to know how to win over the long haul, you need to talk to people who have a lot of life experience under their belts and who've still come out ahead. That's exactly what you'll get in Celebrate 100."
Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host

"Anyone who has ever listened to old men tell stories in a town square or heard grandmothers and great-grandmothers chatter in the kitchen knows the sheer joy and fascination of it. Now Steve Franklin and Lynn Peters Adler have brought us a book that crackles—and cackles—with just such an experience. Their compilation of centenarian stories, 'secrets' and advice is a touching and helpful gift to our youth-obsessed age."
Stephen Mansfield, New York Times bestselling author
