Are We Old Yet?: A casual conversation about aging

Garry Cole

Entertaining read to help us age better.

An optimistic outlook on getting older.


Are we old yet? Have you ever asked yourself that question? There are only two possible answers- Yes (I have considered the possibility), or someday (just not today).


We all age, it is part of life. We can deny it, or accept and make the best of it. This book will help with the second strategy.


My hope is that my casual writing style will pull you into the text, making you feel as if we are having a conversation.


The content is a blend of scientific research, nostalgia, and personal memories which allows for learning and entertainment. There are 35 Conversations (chapters) and include topics such as:

- The science of aging: Why (biologically) we get old. We need to know.

- Is there a fountain of youth?: Well kinda. Good news, we can influence our longevity.

- Who am I now?: Our new identity. The retirement transition.

- What does aging well even mean?

- Healthy aging, lifespan, and healthspan: How do they fit together?

- Why we should live like people in the Blue Zones: Because they happily live to be 100.

- Ten Pillars to live a happy, healthy, and long life: No explanation needed.

- Are we old?: We need to answer the question. I mean it is the title of the book.


By the end of the book you will have learned, laughed, cried, and maybe found a new friend.

Enjoy.
