Description

The New York Times best-selling author of The Wonder of Boys offers a holistic and uplifting look at the emotional, spiritual, and cognitive dimensions of aging - and how to celebrate life after 50.

The years after 50 are generally discussed in terms of health: what are the physical symptoms that come with advancing age, and what can we do about them? The Wonder of Aging goes beyond these topics to serve as both a spiritual, meditative guide and a practical exploration of the emotional and psychological dimensions of the second half of life. This profound audiobook looks at aging as something positive, life-giving, and miraculous. In his characteristically accessible and moving prose, family therapist Michael Gurian shows how we become elders. The world needs our wisdom, he argues, and he shows us how to develop and share it.

Called "the people's philosopher" for his ability to apply scientific ideas to our ordinary lives, Gurian sees life after 50 as an enormously fruitful, exciting, and fulfilling time. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience as well as anecdotes from his many clients over the last two decades, he goes beyond the physical-centered view of aging to present a new, holistic paradigm that embraces the soul-enriching opportunities of 50 and beyond.

The Wonder of Aging divides the second half of life into three stages: the Age of Transformation, from our late 40s to around 60; the Age of Distinction, from 60 to 75; and the Age of Completion, which involves the final stage of our journey. Discussing topics such as sex, how men and women age differently, the effects of aging on the brain, grandparenting, living with purpose, and what to expect in your last chapter, Gurian also provides meditations and exercises to help you design your present and future.

Written with Gurian's courageously optimistic outlook on life, The Wonder of Aging is a comprehensive and comforting road ...
