Overview

THE SCHOOL OF LIFE IS DEDICATED TO EXPLORING LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS IN HIGHLY-PORTABLE PAPERBACKS, FEATURING FRENCH FLAPS AND DECKLE EDGES, THAT THE NEW YORK TIMES CALLS "DAMNABLY CUTE."

Society has a deep fear of ageing, and showing your age is increasingly one of our most pervasive taboos. Old age in modern life is widely viewed as either a time of inevitable decline or something to be resisted, denied or overcome. In "How to Age," sociologist and award-winning journalist Anne Karpf urges us to radically change our narrative.

Exploring how our outlook on ageing is historically determined and culturally defined, Karpf draws upon revealing case studies to suggest how ageing can be an actively enriching time of immense growth. She argues that if we can recognize growing older as an inevitable part of the human condition, then the great challenge of ageing turns out to be none other than the challenge of living. In "How to Age," learn how ageing isn't about your wardrobe or physical fitness, but a determination to live fully at every age and stage of life.
