Read an Excerpt

When we examine the leading neurological research, as well as our own professional and personal experience as observers of the brain and aging, we see a pattern emerging. As we age and our brains become slower as a result of dense neural growth and cell death, other factors compensate us. Most older adults can compensate for changes in brain function. A reduction in work demands means more opportunities to focus on relationships and on giving back to others, allowing a greater focus on happiness. Age brings wisdom, perspective, and reduced anxiety as we come to understand more how life works and what is truly important-people, the natural world, beauty, peace, creativity, and joy. Aging may be difficult at times, but it is not without its rewards.
