From our earliest lives, we are told that our youth will be the best time of our lives-that the energy and vitality of youth are the most important qualities a person can possess, and that everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But in reality, says Wendy Lustbader, youth is not the golden era it is often made out to be. For many, it is a time riddled with anxiety, angst, confusion, and the torture of uncertainty. Conversely, the media often feeds us a vision of growing older as a journey of defeat and diminishment. They are dead wrong. As Lustbader counters, Life gets better as we get older, on all levels except the physical.

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.
