At the End of the Day : Ten New Zealanders in their 80s Reflect on Life in Old Age. Edited by Joan Maclean. 'What's new about old age? There are already increasing numbers of older people, living longer. As the baby boomers age this trend will be more significant, bringing issues about ageing into sharper focus. These issues aroused Joan Maclean's curiosty and led to the interviews in this book. What do okder people thnk about life in the modern world? The ten people who speak are all over 80, but there the similarity ends. The come form different cultural, religious, educational, and career backgrounds. They talk freely about their views of life and death, their hopes and fears. At The End of the Day gives a frank picture of what it is like to be old at a time when younger people are wise to think about being old themselves - to encourage them to prepare for what are likely to be very long lives, and to see old age in a positive light.'
