About the book

‘I keep fit. Every morning I do 100 laps of an Olympic-sized swimming pool – in a small motor launch’ – Peter Cook.

‘The older one grows, the more one likes indecency’ – Virginia Woolf.

You’ve made it. Old age. You want to make the most of your golden years and are finding yourself stereotyped and sidelined. But you’re not the doddering geriatric people think you are. Get inspired by this collection of senior sagacity and elderly erudition and show those young whippersnappers that old is the new young.
