Each page contains a different topic, so you can read and stop wherever you want.   Sam has lots of thoughts on getting old, staying young, always enjoying life, and following your passion.  His book gives you a road map to aging well, managing your health, your money and your attitude.

After writing his first book, “I Love What I Do!”, new ideas kept coming out of his always-ruminating brain, and his fingers kept continuing to type.  We’re fortunate to have a Sam Ulano who is so talented, prolific and generous in sharing his unique and valuable outlook and philosophy on life with others.  You don’t have to be a senior to learn from this book.
