This important and often personal summary of how age affects happiness is served well by the equanimity and grace of Robert Fass’s narration. Whether it’s author Rauch’s personal journey, his fascinating data, or his sensitive portraits of the experts he interviews, Fass captures all of this author’s intensity and colorful writing. In our later years, after the inevitable midlife malaise evident in all cultures, Rauch says, evolution wires us to become more optimistic and content. As we move past midlife, accumulated experience lowers expectations and drive, thus making room for our younger successors to procreate and agitate progress for themselves and their tribes. The audiobook is a most satisfying guide to the hills and valleys of life, and a satisfying roadmap for achieving greater happiness with whatever roads we have taken in life. T.W.
