How You Are Growing Old the Wrong Way

Growing old means serenity, wisdom and reflecting on the really important things in life. This phase of life does not by any means have to be sad or even scary. It is how you approach ageing that makes a difference – and that can definitely be changed.

Uwe Böschemeyer writes with a lot of humour, professional expertise, disarming honesty and personal experience about a time in life which is often served an injustice. Because getting older is actually something really great as the author proves in every respect.

First and foremost it is about precious experiences, about new skills and about you choosing how to deal with farewells, illness and death. It is a period of life which should be thought of as a conscious new beginning. In doing so, it is important to free yourself from your own demands on yourself and the expectations of others and to welcome changes openly and without prejudice. The author shows you how to do so with competency, worldly wisdom and clear examples from everyday life.


»In this time, where making the most profit seems to be more important than people, Uwe Böschemeyer has placed humans at the centre of his thinking«
