By Michael J. Lowis

it's a privilege to be invited to commend Mike Lowis’ publication growing older Disgracefully, with Grace, because in it he's addressing an issue of significant value as extra folks reside longer. what's extra, as size of days raises a majority can wait for more desirable ‘healthy existence expectancy,’ wherein we're much less more likely to be debilitated by means of continual degenerative illnesses as early as our forebears have been, and can quite anticipate in an effort to get pleasure from many points of existence very absolutely into ripe previous age. The down part to this worldwide bring up in fit lifestyles expectancy is that many should paintings longer prior to profiting from pension rights. yet, by means of an analogous token, society is having to think again the contribution its older electorate can and may make, and will now not assign those that nonetheless have a lot to supply to the scrap heap of previous age.

This ebook celebrates those features of getting old in a manner that accords with my very own philosophy. As an Occupational surgeon it's been my position to let operating humans to maximise their power within the paintings position. from time to time, even if, the healing function has been to advertise a fit work-life stability. As individuals are requested to paintings longer, they should advance a mature method of attaining one of these stability and maintaining their well-being and overall healthiness into retirement. Dr. Lowis presents facts approximately how leisure job may help during this approach and, as a choral singer, I wholeheartedly recommend his emphasis at the crucial and common function of music.

Many people who i've got met who've come via almost certainly life-limiting sickness undertake a truly diverse standpoint on existence, and concentration even more on what issues actually matter to them. In his attention of biblical instructing and the position of spiritual religion, Dr. Lowis touches at the adventure of individuals of religion that there's extra to lifestyles than the relentless pursuit of materialistic gift, and during this regard, they proportion a lot in universal with those that have survived critical sickness or damage. i do know from paintings as a Christian Lay Minister that, even if looking success during this lifestyles or the subsequent, religion groups have greatly to supply, and the older individual can either deliver collected knowledge and draw inestimable presents comparable to companionship from such teams. this is grace indeed!

I couldn't finish with no concurring with Dr. Lowis’ fit method of the function of humor. As we become old and progressively lose our schools, it's going to support us if we will snort at our transforming into infirmities, and so positioned these round us at their ease.
Dr. Lowis makes very good use of his event as a scientist, psychologist, musician and theologian in developing this publication. yet might be greater than anything he brings a existence filled with assorted reports and knowledge to endure, and his turning out to be record of courses may still supply encouragement to someone looking new demanding situations and success later in life.

I lately went to a highway reasonable the place there have been a few quite frightening rides. i used to be a little indignant at one signal, which forbade those who have been pregnant or struggling with center affliction – or have been simply “old” – from sitting astride a “bucking bronco.” I challenged the attendant to outline “old.” He took one examine me and acknowledged, I belief jokingly, “like you!”; yet i couldn't aid pondering that, at the same time he acknowledged it, he was once reflecting that, if I had determined to take a hazard with my dodgy vestibular gear and excitable middle and insisted on mounting the journey, he couldn't rather were justified in preventing me!
