Am loving reading Marc Agronin’s THE END OF OLD AGE, is a great read saddled with a lousy title that misses the core message. It is a book about celebrating growing older, about essential human qualities that begin to open up to us as we dive into our 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s & beyond. It’s about the current lack of language around aging expansively. It’s about celebrating every moment of our life, about discovering that even if we or a loved one is faced with memory challenges, that there is always, as the late great Gene Cohen (Dr. Agronin’s inspiration & mine) put it. “sky above clouds.”
From twenty-somethings with older relatives, to older adults who want to get a better sense of terra incognito, to 65+ folks like me who seek a firm footing on that unfamiliar terrain – this terribly named, terrifically insightful book is a great read share discuss for ALL ages!
