That notion is one of the premises behind Lighter as We Go: Virtues, Character Strengths, and Aging, a non-fiction book written by psychologists Mindy Greenstein, M.D and Jimmie Holland, M.D. Both authors have found — in agreement with research — that our later-in-life years really are a better place to be.
