'With more and more us living better, for longer than ever before, the idea of being on the 'wrong side of 50' is way past its sell-by date. Act 3: The Art of Growing Older is therefore a book for our times. With the right blend of insight and inspiration, tips and tools, Judy and Adrian Reith show how we can all make the most of later life' Carl Honore, author of Bolder: Making the Most of Our Longer Lives'Age is a strange thing: we dream of it; we dread it; we learn to leave some things behind; we loathe to leave some things behind. With each decade comes new lessons, new sadnesses, new joys. This book helps navigate those changes: the easy ones and the difficult ones. It brings comfort, and celebration, and wisdom . . . it is a balm' Padraig O Tuama, poet and writer
