    This book has been full of laughs, down-to-earth lessons about life, enjoying it even though you may be a part of the elderly demographic. It instills a lesson about respect for the older generations that came before us, that perhaps they too still have their witty moments. They have lived so long, that they have certainly picked up a trick or two that will come in handy when it comes to out maneuvering 'death' if he comes knocking. It's stories like these that begin to open your eyes a bit more to those around you, that perhaps you thought were a bit too 'senile' to interact with. I would love to see more books like this being released by Hiromi Goto, as they really do leave a memorable impact on the reader. Read Full Review
