Heartfelt and humorous: An A to Z companion to growing older, filled with the unfiltered opinions and preoccupations of seniors today
When do we become “senior”? At age sixty? At retirement? Or, the moment we can’t do something that was previously simple? While there are endless books on “staying young,” there are precious few on embracing your age. Enter brilliant new aphorist Peter Buckman!
In this appealing guide, Buckman distills over 200 A-to-Z topics into sage wisdom, such as: “Secrets are not all that safe when we grow forgetful about who we’re not supposed to share them with.” And, “Respect should be accorded us for our sheer survival, if not for our achievements!”
Wry and revealing, Still With It! thoroughly examines the preoccupations of today’s seniors, and encourages readers of all ages to view elders in a brighter light: not just older, but also most certainly wiser.
