Publisher's Summary

Our society worships at the fountain of youth, but are we missing out on an extraordinary stage in life?

Daniel Klein ponders whether it is better to be forever young or to grin toothlessly and live an authentic old age. He journeys to the Greek island of Hydra to discover the secrets of ageing happily.

Drawing on the lives of Greek locals as well as philosophers, he uncovers the pleasures that are available only late in life.
