Review

Reading this book after a period of overwork and high stress, I was bowled over by its easy charm and hard-won wisdom. I shall be buying it in bulk as presents for my equally overburdened peers, and I suspect a few older people will enjoy it, too. --Daily Mail

Should be a set-book for all over 60... a wry, whimsical, amusing and intelligent view of old age --Daily Telegraph blog

'An insightful meditation' --New York Times

'I was bowled over by its easy charm and hard-won wisdom.' Daily Mail '

Charming and intelligent. I enjoyed this book very much.' Diana Athill

Wry, whimsical, amusing and intelligent.' Daily Telegraph '

Charming and accessible, this philosophical survey simply and accessibly makes academic philosophy relevant to ordinary human emotion.' Kirkus Reviews '

An insightful meditation.' The New York Times'

Both seduces and delights.' Scotsman'

Klein's narrative is a delightful and spirited conversation, offering up the ingredients inherent to the art of living well in old age.' Publishers Weekly '

Funny and wry.'Huffington Post '

A truly benign and valuable short book, that is rare in conveying the spirit as well as the thought of the ancient Greek philosophers, by celebrating the wisdom that emerges in old age.' Mark Vernon, author of 42: Deep Thought on Life, the Universe and Everything'
