    he good news is that old age isn't what it used to be: it is no longer the problem but the solution.
    Australia is getting older. In 2014 the number of Australians aged 65 and over was 3.2 million; in 2042 it is predicted to be 6.2 million - about a quarter of the population - and Australia has one of the highest life expectancies in the world. But while technically those people will be in 'retirement', old age isn't what it used to be. Older Australians are going to - and already do - live longer, and in different ways, to their grandparents. Marc Agronin is seeing all this happening right now in his practice in Florida, and he has good news for older Australians: old age is no longer the problem but the solution.
    Each day brings us new stories of seniors living beyond the expectation of what can be accomplished in old age?scratch the veneer of the typical "old person" that we perceive through our limited, youthful goggles and you will often find someone engaged in important intergenerational relationships, business transactions, community events and spiritual endeavors that are rich, varied, life-sustaining and sometimes jaw-dropping in their intensity and influence.
    Marc Agronin, a leading psychologist, proposes a realistic and optimistic statement and guide to this new, positive style of aging. Aging can be a terrible thing but it can also bring gifts. And it bestows upon us and others an emerging ability to understand it, steer it and appreciate it deeply. Based on his is own research treating geriatric patients, Dr. Agronin proposes a hopeful model?a model to "end" our constricted views on old age and understand how we can control the journey better. The End of Old Age empowers readers to get involved in their own aging (and that of others) and find meaning and purpose in it?to focus on living and not dying?regardless of circumstances and enabling them to cope successfully and create new ways of living far into their golden years.
