Summary

“Jim Henderson’s belief in brevity, clarity and simplicity shines through in this guide to The Art of Ageing Well. In a concise way he reflects on the matters raised by Harvard University’s Dr. George Vallant in his well known examination of ageing and development. Henderson shows that ageing can be about growth rather than decline. This involves maturing into new social roles, demonstrating emotional resilience, feeling happy and well rather than sad and sick, finding the right work to do and developing an active inner life. Life consists of what we are thinking all day, and here is a way to think about ageing that can shine a light on each day of our lives.” --Back cover.
