I was surprised and relieved to learn so many of my own personal/emotional/relational issues were part of the normal aging process! I appreciated the author telling the reader to be aware his stages of aging are not to be hard-and-fast, but guidelines. I loved the optimism expressed throughout the book.
The narrator was perfect for this book. I plan to look for more books narrated by Nick Podehl, as well as more books by Michael Gurian.
I learned so much from this audio book I bought the paperback to read & underline the helpful advice after my husband reads it. (This book has already helped me understand what he is going through.) I convinced my two best friends to buy a copy so we can discuss it. I am also ordering extra copies for the library at the senior center.
So much is covered in this book, but I was particularly moved by "Eva's Song."
If you could sum up The Wonder of Aging in three words, what would they be?
A must read - for those approaching 50 years of age.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I saw a lot of myself in the characterisations of my age group and found that reassuring. I feel less like I am doing life alone.
Any additional comments?
It is often said that life begins at 40. At 50 everyone should get this book, read it and hang on to it. There is a lot of insight into ones self as well as others that will help negotiate growing up once life starts.
