Summary "'You don't have to act your age.' Show-business legend Dick Van Dyke is living proof that life gets better the longer you live it. Who better to offer instruction, advice, and humor than a man who's entering his ninth decade with a jaunty two-step? Dick Van Dyke's irrepressible belief in embracing the moment and unleashing his inner child has proven to be the ultimate elixir of youth, and his optimistic outlook is an invigorating tonic for anyone needing a reminder that life should be lived with enthusiasm despite what the calendar says."-- From back cover.
