Reviews - What do customers think about Aging Comes of Age?
the aging cheerleader Apr 22, 2006
It is more usual to come accross more balanced books - that is, books that treat aging a problem or issue. It is refreshing to come accross an unabashed song of joy and encouragement. The other books have their function as well - we are growing in pain, growing in frailty, growing in limitations that nature puts upon us. Not everyone can be like Moses, who was hearty and strong until his death at 120. But this book at least sets a hopeful tone, and is helpful in its positive focus.
