The aim of this book is to disperse the fears of growing older. They are based on the false beliefs and prejudices about this part of our earthly existence, which in my view are completely unjustified. When approached from the right angle, the spirit one, and handled in a positive frame of mind, this time of our life can turn into its most valuable, precious and rewarding part. Being in my seventy-ninth year, I am telling you this from first hand experience.
