There’s no need to fear aging! Your older years will be some of your happiest. As a psychotherapist I know it’s not what happens to you that matters, it’s how you cope with it. I’ve discovered the key factors to aging well--and at age 88 I’m here to help you enhance your wellness journey.
As a 77 year old, I got this book as soon as I became aware of it, looking for guidance as I move into the last phase of life. The most important thing I learned was that most people in their 80's are actually happy, many happier than they have ever been, despite many challenges. The book is based on interviews with 100+ people in the 80's, and the author herself is in that age group, which creates an interesting perspective. She has some information on the traits of people who seem happy in their eighties, and some guidance on how to get that way. A good read if not a great one".
