Named to The Wall Street Journal's top-six list for "The Year's Best Books for the Journey Ahead," on "making the most of later life" (12/1/2014, R4), Cicero's classic ON OLD AGE is now adapted, explained, and updated to today's world. “Getting old is not for sissies”: the mortal words of Bette Davis. And somewhat the theme of Marcus Tullius Cicero's ON OLD AGE. Except that Cicero did not believe in denying aging or hiding its effects. What he believed has been passed on for generations and still speaks to a modern world. Now 'De Senectute' can be read with a real understanding of it, explained and presented to the contemporary reader. Adapted by Richard Gerberding, a retired professor of history and director of Classical Studies at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, Cicero's essay makes sense and is lively and humorous. More than sixty clever illustrations by Lance Rossi add to the enjoyment. Part of the Journeys & Memoirs Series from Quid Pro Books. Also available in new hardcover and eBook editions from Quid Pro Books.
