From our earliest years, we are told that youth will be the best time of our lives and everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But for many, Wendy Lustbader asserts, youth is a time riddled with tension, confusion and the angst of uncertainty. As we get older, we gain self-knowledge, confidence, and an increasing capacity to be true to ourselves. Through first-person stories and Lustbader's observations, Life Gets Better looks beyond the physical challenges of aging into the discoveries and pleasures of growing older. Book jacket.
