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, movies, the stage, and 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.
In a fun and folksy way of addressing readers, Keep Moving serves as an instruction book 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.

This is a really funny, sincere, and honest book written by a man who has an amazing amount of stamina and endurance even at the age of 90+. He has an attitude that even at his age it’s extremely important to keep moving every day of your life. He writes in such a way that it seems like you’re in conversation with him. He shows that he’s happy to talk to people about how he stays young, and a big part of this comes from his love of music, dance, and singing. He never shies away from telling the reader the truth about getting older, for example, how his body may not always move as freely as it once used to but this doesn’t stop him.
