Sintesi dell'editore

Can't Nothing Bring Me Down is the memoir of 101-year-old, world-record-holding runner Ida Keeling. Miss Ida, as she's known throughout her Bronx community, isn't your typical runner. Her fierce independence helped her through the Depression and the Civil Rights Movement. But her greatest trials were yet to come. 

Ida's two sons were brutally murdered. Justice was never found. Ida felt like she didn't have the strength to carry on and she couldn't hope anymore. But encouraged by her daughter, Ida put on her first pair of running shoes at the age of 67 and began to chase the paralyzing sorrow from her heart. 

Running gave light and new energy to Ida, and since her first race nearly 35 years ago, she's kept running and never looked back. Holding the world record for the fastest time in the 60-meter dash for the 95-99 age group, Ida isn't slowing down. Now she gives us a clear picture of what it means to overcome obstacles. 

Ida Keeling shares her inspirational story about growing up as a child of immigrants during the Depression and later raising four children as a single mother. She offers time-tested truths gathered from a lifetime of watching a nation change and from a life-long faith in Jesus. "Every night, I thank him for my many blessings, for his guidance, for his protection", Ida says, "And every night he tells me, 'Miss Ida, you just keep on, because I ain't done with you yet."

Miss Ida is amazing!

Ida Keeling's autobiography has something for everyone. there are lessons that she has shared from her experiences that will benefit the young as well as the old. the narrator was perfect for this audiobook. I felt like I was listening 2 Miss Ida tell her own story. I am so glad that I found this book.

Did not enjoy this book.

The story was okay. I found myself annoyed that she continued to make bad decision after bad decision then played the victim to justify. The narration was awful which also made the story hard to listen to. It was like listening to a new reader who hadn’t read enough to know which word needed emphasis and when. I would not recommend this audiobook. Maybe it would be better you read it yourself.
