    I thought I d get a heads up on aging from the author of Reviving Ophelia I enjoyed this largely anecdotal book, and did get some idea of this terrain , and she makes interesting observations about how times have changed She found that the biggest change culturally between old and young was, to her surprise, the advent of psychology My favorite quote is I m not growing old I m growing whole Some of the chapters are sad, elders preoccupied ...
