Timeless wisdom on growing old gracefully from one of ancient Rome's greatest philosophers Worried that old age will inevitably mean losing your libido, your health, and possibly your marbles too? Well, Cicero has some good news for you. In How to Grow Old, the great Roman orator and statesman eloquently describes how you can make the second half of life the best part of all—and why you might discover that reading and gardening are actually far more pleasurable than sex ever was. Filled with timeless wisdom and practical guidance, Cicero's brief, charming classic—written in 44 BC and originally titled On Old Age—has delighted and inspired readers, from Saint Augustine to Thomas Jefferson, for more than two thousand years. Presented here in a lively new translation with an informative new introduction and the original Latin on facing pages, the book directly addresses the greatest fears of growing older and persuasively argues why these worries are greatly exaggerated—or altogether mistaken. Montaigne said Cicero's book "gives one an appetite for growing old." The American founding father John Adams read it repeatedly in his later years. And today its lessons are more relevant than ever in a world obsessed with the futile pursuit of youth.

FEEL WELL, FEEL FIT - WHATEVER YOUR AGE! Why do so many of us believe that growing older means we must accept a gradual loss of health and wellbeing? In this ground-breaking new book, respected health practitioner Anne-Lise Miller shows why we don't need to accept that ageing and worsening health go hand-in-hand. Minor ailments such as 'brain fog', feeling tired, headaches, sleeplessness, constipation, aching joints, weight gain and low libido are common symptoms that many of us consider inevitable as we grow older. But if allowed to continue they can lead to more serious problems such as diabetes, dementia, heart disease and cancer. Anne-Lise Miller is a nutritionist and complementary health therapist of 30 years' experience. She challenges the myth that we must accept the 'symptoms of age' and explains precisely how we can take control of our own good health. This book is the result of her hundreds of clients begging her to write a book about her systemic approach to health. STAY YOUNG, VIBRANT & HEALTHY In this book Anne-Lise Miller: -Challenges the belief that health wanes with age. -Explores how our emotions affect our health and wellbeing. -Demonstrates how taking control of our health brings extraordinary rewards. -Gives detailed plans and juice recipes for detoxing your liver, kidneys and gall bladder. -Provides recipes and juice combinations for healthy heart, prostate, and brain, plus foods to improve memory, and to relieve symptoms of the menopause "This book is a tour de force; a rich blend of ancient wisdom and modern science."

In this warm, sensitive, fact-filled book, Paul Tournier deals specifically with many aspects of aging: society's attitude towards the elderly; second careers; the quality of life; financial difficulties; boredom; health; loneliness; and facing death. He believes we must all learn to grow old, and that the process is most successfully accomplished when we prepare and plan for it throughout life. Tournier offers a variety of suggestions to help make growing old not an end but a new beginning, filled with purpose and hope. He suggests ways to remain active and to use leisure to its best advantage without letting it become a tyrant. He also provides insights on taking up new interests, such as becoming involved with young people and new ideas, and learning to pray, to meditate, to acquire wisdom, and to draw increasing strength and inspiration from the reality of divine presence and power.
