Are you a young person? Middle-aged? Old? It doesn't really matter. Each of us grows older every second. Most of us age without taking charge of our life course, without a plan for our ageing. Each dip into these short chapters offers some operating instructions for life, a guide to engaging passionately with age.
Dealing with a plethora of subjects, such as health, happiness, loneliness, dementia, sex, gender, marriage, abuse, respect, wage, wealth, class, and care, the book touches on how ageing affects us as individuals and as a society. Through this, myths and misconceptions on ageing are explored, urging us to rethink attitudes and policies on ageing and ageing populations.
