This book is about how to grow older without growing old. If you are fortunate and do not die early by accident or disease, you will become elderly in this century, a period which will produce more older people and centenarians than any other time in history. To get older is one task; to make old age valuable is another. This book assumes you have had or will want to have a long life and, more importantly, you have the desire to find significance and value in being older. This book is meant to help you, but it may not. It depends, of course, on you. That is why the book is also called 'The Art of Ageing." This book offers you various proposals for ageing well written by contemporary international authors who also suggest a variety of views about how to age artfully. 'An old age in need of self-improvement is unenviable." "On Old Age," Cicero 'Good old man.Give me your hand and let me your fortunes understand." "As You Like It," William Shakespeare 'Andorra ranks first among nations in life expectancy-83 years versus 77.1 in the USA and 37.2 in Zambia." "" 'Centenarians are a diverse group, according to The New England Centenarian Study. Some are teetotalers. Others manage to reach extreme old age despite heavy drinking and smoking, deadly behaviors for most people. One feature common to most centenarians is that stress does not bother them." Profits from the sale of this book will go to international charities that assist the elderly.
