Publisher's Summary

"Virtues? What could possibly be good about growing old?" That's the response former President Jimmy Carter received when he mentioned the title of this book. Indeed, the thought of aging causes people to worry about the physical aspect of it as well as the prejudice that exists toward the elderly. Carter demonstrates, however, that there are indeed virtues to aging, exploring the possibility of spiritual and intellectual growth in old age. This inspirational audio version is narrated by Carter himself.

A Must for the Aging

This is a must read/listen for all of us who are getting older. The former President tells us what good there is in aging and gives us more than hope. He truly has aged gracefully. You can listen to the entire book in one sitting, and President Carter reads the book himself.
