Australians are staying healthy and living longer than ever before. Yet rather than focusing on the productive, rich, varied lives older people lead, we dwell on the burden of ageing. This book will inspire, entertain and motivate you to be connected, interested, risk-taking and inventive. It will challenge your preconceptions and will convince you that fifty is now the start of the second half of your life and not the beginning of the end.
In Praise of Ageing is groundbreaking in its desire to reshape your thinking.
