Recensione

This new series of The School of Life's self-help books build on the strengths of the first, tackling some of the hardest issues of our lives in a way that is genuinely informative, helpful and consoling. Here are books that prove that the term "self-help" doesn't have to be either shallow or naive (Alain de Botton, Founder of The School of Life)

The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge (Independent on Sunday)

4.0 su 5 stelle A difficult subject 27 gennaio 2015
Di Eeyore - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The book starts out well and the writing is quite elegant. Probably I would have liked more about the grieving process and less about how society treats old people. In general it is a fairly interesting book on a difficult subject. Don't be fooled by the title. It isn't a "How to" book at all. More of an overview about the aging process.

I haven't finished the book yet (sidetracked by another book!), but it is all about reframing things and realizing that we've been aging since day 1. And at every turn in life there are losses and debilities, not just once we pass middle age. So far I'm liking the book very much. It gives me pause.

5.0 su 5 stelle Clear, thoughtful introduction to age 14 luglio 2016
Di OwlSong - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Those looking for a typical self-help book with bullet points & how-to steps will probably find this small but rich volume disappointing. If so, they'll be missing something very good indeed. What Anne Karpf has written works as both personal essay & a reflective study of the clichés & realities of ageing. It doesn't presume to have all the answers (although it offers many intelligent ideas as excellent starting points) -- instead, it invites the readers to re-consider their notions of age, which were probably absorbed from popular culture & never really examined or questioned. Much of what she says may seem like common sense ... but as we know, common sense isn't always so common; and in any case, thinking that one already knows these things often means that they're taken for granted & go unexplored as a result. The important thing to take away from these pages is that her thoughts are a beginning, and that we should do a fair amount of contemplation ourselves. Growing old is a universal reality, yet so many are unprepared for it, fearing it, loathing it. This book might help you to start thinking differently & more wisely about it. Recommended!

Inspiring, lots of different point of views, motivated me to tackle this not always easy topic pro-actively- and very enjoyable to read :-) I can highly recommend "How to age" by Anne Karpf.

5.0 su 5 stelle 'Grow Old Along with me, the best is yet to be' 5 gennaio 2015
Di Shalom Freedman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book presents an idea and ideal of human aging that is different from the one most people hold. As Anne Karpf most people believe aging begins at a certain specific age, forty, fifty, sixty- five, seventy. In fact we begin aging from conception and our ideas of this aging are transformed in time. The young eager to grow up and have the freedom from restrictions are one pole of this. The young dreading the responsibility of adulthood and wishing to remain in a childhood world are another aspect. Karpf details the dread of going old so pervasive in our culture, and the various means we try to halt or reverse this process. The negative view of aging and the old is she claims very strong in our society. The Aged are those doubly condemned , first for being useless, and second for taking up the resources that the young might use. This view is increasingly prevalent as the numbers of those and percentage of those in our society over the age of seventy increase.
Against the negative views of aging so commonly held Karpf argues for a more positive and balanced view. Each age of life according to her as its gains and losses. The benefits of aging can be a new kind of freedom, a freedom to be more truly oneself, a freedom from fear of the opinion of others, a freedom to give one's time and energy to those activities one loves. Without in any way minimizing the difficulties and even horrors that can come with old age Karpf shows how for many it is a most satisfying time of life. Realizing there is an end to come may very well deepen one's sense of life's pleasures and meaning.
This is a highly recommended, excellently written and important work.
