The Oldie Magzine’s “Winter Review of Books” Featured
“In his new book, The Wisdom Years, Dr Zvi Lanir describes his personal experience of the ‘hidden age’. He reckons that while he was no longer young, he wasn’t ready to concede that he was old at 67: his true age was a mystery. Below are some extracts, which challenge the commonly held belief that the official retirement age is inevitably the beginning of old age”
