The Essential Guide to Growing Old Disgracefully (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Getting older is like climbing a mountain. You're a little bit out of breath, but the view is much better. - Ingrid Bergman

I have reached an age where if someone tells me to wear socks, I don't have to. - Albert Einstein

Learn to enjoy, cherish, and even revel in the process of growing older with this collection of quotes on the joy and contentment of ageing. Full of inspiring, tongue-in-cheek words from the much-loved voices of Albert Einstein, Bette Davis and more, this is a guide to living all stages of life to the full.

Built to be dipped into on occasion, or read all at once, The Essential Guide to Ageing Disgracefully is designed simply and elegantly. With the quotes each given space to breathe, occasionally accompanied by images of their contributor, and printed on high-quality paper, this book provides a calming, luxurious reading experience.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who is feeling the effects of ageing but hasn't yet learned to look at them in a positive light. Whether you're seeking happiness or wisdom, these words will lift your mood and entertain, while also inspiring reflection, gratitude and making you pause for thought. After all, why not age a little disgracefully?
