About the Author:

Tim Love is the former Vice-Chairman of Omnicom Group, a leading global advertising and marketing services company. Throughout Tim’s 42-year career in advertising his writing and artistic skills enabled him to excel in building relationships with different cultures. He lived in Tokyo, Singapore, Brussels and New York obtaining firsthand experience with consumers for leading advertisers like Procter & Gamble, Nissan and Infiniti automobiles, Kraft, PepsiCo, UBS, Mars and Johnson & Johnson and public service campaigns. Since retiring from advertising in 2013, Tim has taught at Oxford University’s Said School of Business MBA program on “Branding and Communication,” is a frequent university guest lecturer, and is on the faculty of the US Marketing Communications College, at the US Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute.

Review:

Tim Love wrote The Book That Gets Better with Age: Observations Through the Looking Glass of Aging to help older folks process life – past, present and future – and assist young people in letting go of things that hinder them now so they can live a fuller life as they age. There are 32 chapters in the book, almost every one of which has an accompanying illustration which brings the concepts to life more. The font also increases one point in each chapter, so you go from about 10/12 font size to 40 or so. It is fun and makes reading feel fast and easy. Tim asked different people the question "What gets better with aging?" Answers like "comfort rather than fashion," "enjoying the journey, rather than just racing to a destination," "doing what you want instead of what you should do," "having an easier time saying no," show wisdom and insight that both old and young can appreciate.

 

I absolutely LOVE The Book That Gets Better with Age! Tim Love does an exceptional job presenting the different concepts. He has a great sense of humor and a good grasp of language. The chapters flow together and into the next so well, though each chapter can be read as a standalone. Also, select pieces of poetry and thoughtful quotes are sprinkled throughout the book. I find that I appreciate the wording and thoughts in these as I get older too. Poetry is a pain as a youngster. The flavor is so much better as you age – like a good wine. This book is so good. It will DEFINITELY go on my list of top favorite books. And I am already thinking of all the people that would appreciate getting it as a gift, including myself. Recommended for all ages.

(Ashley Tetzlaff for Readers' Favorite)

The Book That Gets Better with Age is a lot of fun.  It is a combination of wit and wisdom.  And everyone who is getting to be an old crock could use something that makes them feel better about the process.

(Jacqueline Hornor Plumez, PhD: Award-winning Author and Psychologist; author of The Bitch in Your Head, Divorcing a Corporation and Mother Power)

A collection of warm observations that brings the nod of a head, quite a few smiles and encouragement to follow a more rewarding path.

(John Pepper, Former Chairman of P&G and The Walt Disney Co.)

As this book abundantly illustrates, one thing that definitely gets better with age is wisdom. This is a wise and wonderful book. Enjoy!

(Bill Hallamandaris, Chairman/Co-Founder: The Heart of America Foundation 2016-03-10)

Inspirational, informational, incisive! This is a masterclass on how the baby boomer generation thinks, feels and acts and a superlative source of valuable information for marketing to them. Captured in punchy, everyday anecdotes that millions will relate to, this book underlines why Tim Love is one of the greatest marketing minds in business today.

(Anthony A. Rose, Best-selling author; Chairman/CEO, House of Rose Professional, Global Authority on Public Relations and Influencer Marketing 2016-03-10)

This zhihui de xiao shu (little book of wisdom) reflects much learning about Asian corporate culture. Seniority commands respect and trust. Wisdom comes with age. A 60-year-old politician is regarded young. Aging is graceful and rewarding process worth celebrating.

(Pully Chau, Group COO Cheil Greater China, First woman named Advertising Person of Year in China 2016-03-10)
