Publisher's Summary

In this entertaining and inspirational memoir, Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke shares his secret to staying resilient in old age.
Beloved Hollywood icon Dick Van Dyke will celebrate his 90th birthday in December 2015. He's an established legend, having starred in Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. And yet he's still keeping himself busy, entertaining America on television, in movies, on the stage, and on social media. Everyone wonders, "How does he do it?" For the first time, Van Dyke shares his secrets and tips on old age - just keep moving.
With a fun and folksy way of addressing its audience, Keep Moving serves as an instruction audiobook on how to embrace old age with a positive attitude. The chapters are filled with exclusive personal anecdotes that explore various themes on aging: how to adapt to the physical and social changes, deal with loss of friends and loved ones, stay current, fall in love again, and "keep moving" every day like there's no tomorrow.

Disappointed with aspects of this audiobook.

I was disappointed with aspects of this book.While there is no denying Van Dyke's enthusiasm for life and his obvious talent for light musical entertainment, his sharing tends to drift off on tangents that distance the reader and dilute the strong elements of his personal character. For example, his leftist political bias emerges in all its ugliness at moments when it was absolutely unnecessary. His "A" grading of Obama for being black and peddling hope to the masses was one of numerous small- minded gestures. Politics and art are incongruous and best kept separate, unless the intent is to exploit the listener... Elsewhere contradictions and hypocrisies arise such as the claim to be 'clean' while taking sleeping pills continuously over a forty year period doesn't seem pertinent, or a health concern. Strange. Finally, Van Dyke's lack of spiritual growth in the face of his own lifetime was surprising. Clearly he has lived in the material world and found comfort there but one might expect a certain spiritual wisdom that comes from old age and a career in arts related fields... a sense of the deeper beauty and sacredness... Not a Malibu thing perhaps...

Listening to Dick Van Dyke's stories. I smiled, I chuckled, and I laughed out loud.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A life lived well.

Any additional comments?

At first his voice is a little difficult because it has that aged roughness to it, but that went by the wayside quickly and it was all just Dick Van Dyke. Memorable.
