About The Challenges of Aging
The Challenges of Ageing is about dealing with day-to-day challenges as we grow older. It discusses how to handle the increased pressures imposed on our daily lives as the world becomes more and more modernised; what new life skills we should nurture; paths to self-awareness and congruence; how to handle grief and bereavement; how to plot a tranquil retirement; how to survive together and alone; and much more.
The Challenges of Ageing provides an absorbing account on coping with difficulties as the years roll on. It can be read for an overall appreciation of the ageing phenomenon, and as a valuable ready-reference as life progresses.
