"Robin Porter’s new guide is filled with practical advice that will inspire readers to think about aging before it’s too late. Drawing upon research, interviews with experts, and personal anecdotes, Better with Age offers strategies and tools to age with grace, both physically and emotionally."
-Irene S. Levine, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine
"Porter suggests that aging needn’t be feared, that longevity presents an opportunity to remake oneself, and that one can enjoy days filled “with meaning and purpose.” Chapters are divided by decades, beginning with the fifties and continuing beyond the eighties, and are further subdivided in well-marked sections that span topics such as diet, advanced health directives, sexuality, continuing work, safety measures in the household, and more. An overarching theme of creating a home (“Laying the Foundation,” “Building on Experience,” “Making Some Renovations,” “Adding On”) serves as a clever organizing principle and as a familiar image that successfully evokes the secure refuge and comfort many desire."
“Robin Porter's Better With Age is a great, easy to understand, guide to the aging journey.
