Sobre o livro
David Bainbridge is a vet with a particular interest in evolutionary zoology - and he has just turned forty. As well as the usual concerns about failing eyesight and goldfish levels of forgetfulness, he finds himself pondering some bigger questions. By looking afresh at the latest research from the fields of anthropology, neuroscience, psychology, and reproductive biology, it seems that the answers are surprisingly, reassuringly encouraging. Here he explains the mental, physical and emotional changes men and women experience between the ages of 40 and 60 and reveals the personal and evolutionary benefits of middle age.
