Summary
  • We all worry occasionally that our brains - particularly our memories - just don't work as well as they used to. In this groundbreaking book, Andre Aleman shows that though the decline in our mental capacities begins earlier than we think, this is not such a bad thing. In fact, older people are more resistant to the effects of stress, cope better with their emotions and with complex situations, and are - generally speaking - happier than their younger counterparts.
