The choices we make in our middle years contribute to the quality of the rest of our lives. Those that served us well in the first half of life may not work for us in the second. Dr Hardin, founder and director of Midlife Consulting Services, wove together research personal experiences, stories, and exercises to show how to live and age well. She wrote the book when she was in midlife herself. Now in her late 80’s she says she is finding life richer, more fulfilling than she thought possible. She encourages us to embrace our aging: unexpected joys await.
