Can ageing really be a positive experience? Yes. You can make a difference to your own ageing process. Research shows that how we think about ageing can have a significant impact on our health and well-being in later life.

Concentrating on the psychological and emotional aspects of getting older, and deploying a range of personal development techniques, The Ten Steps of Positive Ageing provides you with the keys to a happier and more fulfilled later life. This is the book for those of us who want to do ageing differently.
