As elders are living longer and healthier lives, these additional years call for what author Olga Spencer explains is a new vision and fulfillment of the senior stage. Here psychologist Spencer pinpoints how we can transform our perception of aging, changing from seeing senior years as a time of decline, to seeing this stage as a great opportunity for final, ultimate development. We can all transform our lives, to recognize new, unexpected and vital experiences and potentials, she explains. Enlisting fields as diverse as psychology, medical science, physics and cosmology, Spencer shows us the new frontiers in aging, and how our choices determine our destiny. Spencer also focuses on peak experiences, those moments that are for us validation of life lived fully and with passion, and their importance to seniors to not only fulfillment but also biological wellness and independence ce. Three of her book's major points are that aging begins in the mind, that aging is an obsolete concept, and that lifestyle (not age) determines successful aging. This thought-provoking book, written with the assistance of two medical doctors and a registered dietician, will interest any readers over 50 who want to live their senior years to their fullest, as well as their family members and loved ones, in addition to social workers, mental health professionals, medical professionals, clergy and other professionals in roles caring for seniors.

Review:

"Drawing from the fields of psychology, medical science, physics, and cosmology, Spencer, a psychologist and octogenarian inspires readers to increase awareness of their potential and design their own visions of aging. She invites readers to set and reach new goals in the process of living a purposeful life rather than leading an existence of mindless habit, regardless of chronological age. She teams with MDs in endocrinology, cosmetic surgery, nutrition, and audiology to give advice on taking care of the body, and also addresses sense of purpose, the creative process, and love and sensuality." - SciTech Book News
