'A joyously life-enhancing book [that] shatters the myths about ageing' Daily Mail

Carl Honor captured the zeitgeist with his international sensation,In Praise of Slow. InBolder, he introduces us to another rising movement: a revolution in our approach to ageing.


Ageing is inevitable. In this time of longer lifespans, however, we have the potential to age better than ever before. Having travelled the globe to meet the pioneers who are redefining ageing, Carl Honor explores the cultural, medicaland technological trends that will help us make the most of our longer lives. He shows us that the time has come to cast off prejudices and blur the lines of what is possible at every age. We can tear up the old script that locks us into learning in early life, working in the middle years and pursuing leisure with whatever time is left at the end. Instead, we can learn, work, rest, care for others, volunteer, create and have fun all the way through our lives.

Bolderis a radical re-think of our approach to everything from education, healthcare and work, to design, relationships and politics. An essential and inspiring read to help all of us make ageing a bonus rather than a burden.
