The first book to open up a real conversation about aging. What has the experience of getting older felt like for you?

It seems that life's milestones pass by in a flash: graduating from school, landing your first job, getting married, having kids. Most people look forward to these events and have some expectations about what each life milestone will be like. But what about when you get older? How can you continue to live fully in your sixties, seventies, and beyond? Linda K. Stroh and Karen K. Brees asked nearly one thousand older people about the challenges and joys of growing older and compiled their collective wisdom into this must-have book, focusing on important topics such as:
• Changing self-identities
• Friendships and romantic relationships
• Health, fitness, and self-image
• Loss
• Relationships with adult children, grandchildren, and siblings
and much more!

Full of advice and stories from a wide variety of older people, Getting Real about Getting Older examines love, loss, and changing identities, and will help you take control of your concerns about aging and experience wisdom and joy as an older adult.


"Well written and easy to read, with lots of good advice on how to grow older without getting old... Reading this book made me realize that my feelings of uncertainty are hardly unique!
" - Neal S. Birnbaum, MD, Clinical Profess of Medicine, UCSF

"Sensitively offered advice about how to age better." - Thomas D. Cook, professor emeritus of sociology, psychology, education, and social policy, Northwestern University

"Cuts to the essence of growing older, better." - Dr. Christopher Meckel, orthopedic surgeon, Monterey Spine & Joint

"Reading this wonderful book by Drs. Linda Stroh and Karen Brees has been a tonic for my soul. Knowing that I am not alone in the journey through old age is a great comfort. Both the stories and the commentary have provided me with huge epiphanies and much delight." - Dr. Faye J. Crosby, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, UCSC

"A realistic yet optimistic guide to the "golden" years." - Library Journal - STARRED
