In his award-winning book, Charles Tindell makes it clear that there is no reason why we should fear aging. His collection of real-life short stories about people's feelings and experiences will give you a greater understanding of not only the fears but also the joys associated with aging. Some of the stories will make you laugh and some will make you cry, but together, they make warm and insightful reading for those in their post-retirement years, whether living independently or in a retirement facility. It is also useful for those who find themselves assuming responsibility for the parents who once so lovingly cared for them as children. It humanizes the elderly while helping the reader "see beyond the wrinkles."
