When we were young, adults had to ask us, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Now that we’re all grown up, we have to ask ourselves, “Who do we want to be when we grow old?” That’s the question Who Do You Want to Be When You Grow Old? helps answer. Because everyone is getting old, but not everyone is growing old.

Author Richard Leider explores how purposeful aging is a path to resilience and fulfillment. This book celebrates the experience of aging through inspiring stories, real-world practices, and provocative questions designed to help readers navigate the path from adulthood to elderhood with choice, curiosity, and courage.
