Bolder – making the most of our longer lives by Carl Honoré
Carl Honoré offers a radical rethink of how we approach ageing, showing how we can live better for longer and feel good about it
“Every age can be wonderful, but only if we embrace it. Embrace the present instead of pining for the past and shrinking from the future.” Carl Honoré
In an era obsessed with retaining our youth, getting older is often met with fear and denial. Advancements in health care and standards of living mean that we are increasingly living for longer with a better quality of life and with this comes the challenge about how we view ageing.
This book offers an expansive view on growing older, examining everything from the physical effects of ageing on the body to our role in society, leaving us with the thought that what comes to define us is not our age but the choices we make.
