The End of Old Age: Living a Longer, More Purposeful Life. In his new book, Dr. Marc Agronin presents a hopeful view of the aging process, casting it as a developmental force that brings unique strengths, including wisdom, purpose and creativity. These strengths are portrayed in the inspiring stories of a Holocaust survivor who journeys back to Auschwitz each year with young Jewish students, a famous aging artist who reinvented himself after nearly dying, and other individuals whom Dr. Agronin has encountered in his longstanding work.
