- Well Structured
- Concrete Examples
Marc Agronin, a leading geriatric psychiatrist, provides a new way to think about the aging process. Describing the brain science of aging, Agronin explains how certain turning points encourage the elderly to shrink from life. He presents a pathway to resilience and explains why many older people choose to stagnate. Agronin shares a wealth of personal experiences and offers an action plan to help readers rethink old age. In a culture that idealizes youth, Agronin offers insights into what society loses by rejecting the possibilities that people continue to develop in old age. He helps you reconsider basic assumptions about aging and shows older readers how much more is left for them to do and discover.
