Life Is So Good: One Man's Extraordinary Journey through the 20th Century and How he Learned to Read at Age 98

Life Is So Good: One Man's Extraordinary Journey through the 20th Century and How he Learned to Read at Age 98 -  'Richard Glaubman', 'George Dawson' This is a wonderful little book. The author, George Dawson has such an amazing outlook on life. He's lived some real history (he wrote this book at age 100!), and he's such an optimist. I would have liked to have met him. So wise.
