Overview

Life Gets Better: The Unexpected Pleasure of Growing Older by Wendy Lustbader

From our earliest years, we are told that youth will be the best time of our lives and everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But for many, Wendy Lustbader asserts, youth is a time riddled with tension, confusion and the angst of uncertainty. As we get older, we gain self-knowledge, confidence, and an increasing capacity to be true to ourselves. Through first-person stories and Lustbader's observations, Life Gets Better looks beyond the physical challenges of aging into the discoveries and pleasures of growing older.
