Advance Praise

“The Gift of Aging is itself a gift. It’s packed with research-based strategies and motivating stories of elders that can help make growing older the most meaningful ride of a lifetime.” Daniel Pink, best-selling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

 "This wonderful book is filled with lots of practical advice--but none more practical than 'have a purpose.' The last decades of our lives can be the most important, productive, and fulfilling, but only if we take them with the seriousness (and the good humor) they deserve." Bill McKibben, best-selling author of The Flag, The Cross, and the Station Wagon

“Marcy Houle and Elizabeth Eckstrom show that while getting older is necessarily a process of becoming more aware of our human limitations, it's also an invitation to step more wholeheartedly into those limitations, becoming ever more fully the people we were meant to be. For the first time in a while, I find myself relishing the prospect of advancing age." Oliver Burkeman, author of Four Thousand Weeks
