From our earliest years, we are told that youth will be the best time of our lives and everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But for many, Wendy Lustbader asserts, youth is a time riddled with tension, confusion and the angst of uncertainty. As we get older, we gain self-knowledge, confidence, and an increasing capacity to be true to ourselves. Through first-person stories and Lustbader's observations, Life Gets Better looks beyond the physical challenges of aging into the discoveries and pleasures of growing older. Book jacket.

Counting myself amongst the "aged," gave me the opportunity to read this excellent book on the topic. This book enabled me to understand that "Acceptance of decreased ability is not the same as capitulation." In a lighter vein perhaps Mark Twain summed it up best when he said, "Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen!" Dr. Lustbader fills her books with sayings and examples of people living their best years of their lives in their golden years.
