    8. Interesting read A little meandering but neat to hear some of the stories from a television icon who had lived through many eras of change in the country.

    9. Okay, I m a Dick Van Dyke fan I know him from Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the Dick Van Dyke show we have dvds This is a book about how to grow old without really doing it I m about 31 years away from the age group he considers old, but even as a young person I found this book to be enlightening There s a part of me that s worried about getting old, and not being as physically capable of doing everything I can do now not that I m athletic or coordinated or anything, but I like to d [...]

    10. A wonderfully funny, real, yet optimistic book about aging He makes the idea of getting older something to look forward to not dread I recommend this to everyone of all ages Even my 13 year old daughter loved reading it

    11. I love Dick van Dyke He was 89 when he wrote this and he s 92 now his birthday was just last week and I listened to it as an audio book He read it himself which was great It must be a short book because it only took 5.5 hours to listen to it It s a mix of memoirs, anecdotes, a day in the life of Dick, interviews with other old comedian type guys, and collections of tips and truths about getting old He mentions some of his early career stuff like Mary Poppins and his sitcom, but his stories are m [...]

    12. After seeing him at Comicon this year, I thoroughly enjoyed this book I felt like I was having a conversation with him.

    13. I would like to thank Weinstein Books and NetGalley for providing me with an electronic copy of this book This is an update on the review that I wrote for the sampler of Keep Moving, as I have now read the full edition A memoir by Dick Van Dyke, Keep Moving is like a testimonial on how to live an active, meaningful life Mr Van Dyke lives life to the fullest, never wondering if what he is doing is age appropriate His sage advice and wisdom come from a lifetime of experiences, both on and off scr [...]

    14. I should have quit when he spent two minutes describing how to make a bowl of vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup, but I m incapable of abandoning books Mildly entertaining, since he s such a charming character, and the audiobook narration was pretty good However, my cranky feminist tendencies come out when a man repeatedly asserts, I just can t stop myself from dancing everywhere, including going up on the stage to steal share his wife s spotlight at her dance performance I get it, he s made [...]

    15. I thoroughly enjoyed this book I highly recommend it for anyone who thinks they are old or feeling old You no longer have an argument Dick Van Dyke is 91 years old He was 89 when he wrote this book He was light on his feet when he acted in the 50 s and 60 s I felt the same way about him as I was reading this book He has a very positive outlook on life and it shines through, here One of the most fascinating chapters in this book showcases a timeline of his life He literally grades major events th [...]

    16. I have admired Dick Van Dyke since childhood His light heartedness and feel good comedy is contagious beyond words At 89 years young he is still an amazing spirit and role model The tips in this book on growing older, or rather not growing older, are not only fun but also insightful I hope that I am able to give off as much light and joy in my life as this man has through his.

    17. Charming We should all be so lucky to have Van Dyke s attitude about aging and life in general, not to mention his good health and longevity The book is also an interesting view on the lives of real people in show business, humanizing an industry that often seems remote and over idealized.

    18. It was a delight to listen to this memoir narrated by the author Dick Van Dyke is quite the storyteller.

    19. I ve always liked Dick Van Dyke and picked this up on a whim at the library Van Dyke is now in his 90 s and sounds like he is living better in his 90 s than he did in his 60 s when he finally quit chain smoking and overcame his alcohol addiction He has a lot of enthusiasm and gives us all hope that old age needn t be miserable He has common sense and shares many stories from his life and his opinions on how to navigate life successfully that would apply to any age It was an enjoyable read and I [...]

I got this book without knowing much about it just because I love Dick Van Dyke I mean, who doesn t I was a little worried that I might be too young to get much out of it once I realized it was all about aging It turns out, there is some great advice here for people of any age I highly recommend listening to the audio book as it s read by Dick Van Dyke himself and it s so great to listen to him The best word I can think of to describe this book is delightful It will make you feel great.

    23. This was nice Just Nice with a capital N that puts a smile on your face and reminds you like life is for the living best to put capital L s there, too But I had to wonder a bit about his intended audience I got the feeling that Mr Van Dyke was trying to convince us to get up and dance, as if we ve forgotten how, or fallen asleep, or something Now, I know that there are plenty in that crowd, but I don t think they re the ones drawn to this title Maybe I m projecting, but I leapt at the opportunit [...]

    24. I ve been working on this review for almost three months I originally started it with the intention of having it out on the week the book was published, but that obviously didn t happen.It wasn t like other book reviews when I tell myself I ll get to them when I get to them, this was genuine distraction One time I managed to distract myself by deciding to watch The Dick Van Dyke Show.It was likely avoidance of writing what I feel.I have a deep admiration for Dick Van Dyke I credit him for being [...]
