For the first time ever, most people in the United States are living into their eighties.

Based on her more than 120 interviews around the country, Esty explores the lives of ordinary eightysomethingsâ€”their attitudes, activities, secrets, worries, purposes, and joys.

Readers, young and old alike, will find this first-of-its-kind book eye-opening, comforting, and filled with practical tips.
