The Challenges of Ageing: Reaching Self-awareness, Acceptance & Contentment
Media Masters Pte Limited, 2013 - Health & Fitness - 208 pages
If you find, as you grow older, that the world is becoming more baffling - indeed, more disturbing - by the day, be assured you are not alone. Countless millions in your age bracket around our planet are experiencing similar feelings. In fact, they've been doing so for some years. To suggest, then, that the publication of The Challenges of Ageing is timely, might well be an under-statement. After all, technical experts have, for over a decade now, been documenting the staggering impact population ageing is having on the very structure of human existence. It has been noted, for instance, that a large number of developed countries are l experiencing ageing population impacts never before encountered in human history. A United Nations study on the subject estimates that the number of older persons worldwide tripled in a 50-year period to the year 2000. It will have more than tripled again by the year 2050. The impact on everyday living for older generations is massive. Unsurprisingly, an immense volume of related statistical reports on the subject is widely available. Decidedly less available, however, is down-to-earth information focussed on achieving rewarding ageing lives within these ever-intensifying environments. Co-authors of The Challenges of Ageing, counselling psychologist, Maria Carmen Navarro, and novelist/historian, Norma Mirafl or, have skilfully targeted this critical area of need. The result is a book for which there will surely be wide demand. Far from being yet another statistical study, The Challenges of Ageing provides an absorbing account on coping with difficulties as the years roll on. It can be read, initially, for an overall appreciation of the ageing phenomenon. Thereafter it can be kept for valuable ready reference as life progresses.
