How should we accept aging? It s inevitable, and yet in Western society the very subject of growing older is shrouded in anxiety and shame.

Combining personal anecdotes with psychological theory, philosophy, and eye-opening scientific research from around the world, this thought-provoking and refreshing book provides a brave and uplifting meditation on our later years as they should be lived."

Review quote

"[A]n uplifting book...Ageing is about a never-ending process of development--but you grow old when you stop, when you refuse the renewal of the spirit, which the universe offers, if only you listen and look. This is my personal belief and why I have been bouncing like a Tigger ever since I read Marie de Hennezl's book."--Bel Mooney, Daily Mail Online
