Going above and beyond the population explosion, pension negotiations and youth culture, this book deals with the personal aspects of ageing – with the questions, worries and hopes that occupy those coming to terms with their mortality:
  • When will we be happy, and how – will it be different from our younger years?
  • Will we be able to enjoy new freedom and to take advantage of our right to question roles, conventions and expectations?
  • Will we be able to take advantage of new achievements in medicine and technology or will they become a burden?
  • How will we experience the bodily, mental and social changes of old age – as crises or as opportunities?

This is a wise book which makes one - and not only older readers - think.
