Professionally, as a Controller of a complex business, I see the issues and questions of aging every day. The workforce is changing, and the idea of being a trusted, visible elder is changing too. In The Wonder of Aging, Gurian helps us look at a lot of these issues with a new lens, and gives someone like me practical tips that are useful not only at home and in life but also among managers and supervisors at work. The multi-generational workplace needs this kind of insight if we are all to thrive, especially today with baby-boomers working into their late sixties and early seventies.
If you want insights into the aging process, either for yourself, your parents, or your grandparents, this is the book to buy.
