Description

The first book to open up a real conversation about aging. What has the experience of getting older felt like for you?

It seems that life’s milestones pass by in a flash: graduating from school, landing your first job, getting married, having kids. Most people look forward to these events and have some expectations about what each life milestone will be like. But what about when you get older? How can you continue to live fully in your sixties, seventies, and beyond? Linda K. Stroh and Karen K. Brees asked nearly one thousand older people about the challenges and joys of growing older and compiled their collective wisdom into this must-have book, focusing on important topics such as:

  • Changing self-identities
  • Friendships and romantic relationships
  • Health, fitness, and self-image
  • Loss
  • Relationships with adult children, grandchildren, and siblings
  • And much more!

Full of advice and stories from a wide variety of older people, Getting Real about Getting Older examines love, loss, and changing identities, and will help you take control of your concerns about aging and experience wisdom and joy as an older adult.
