Already convinced that we ourselves and our individual evolutions are worthy subjects of inquiry in (formal) study and/or everyday life? This 40-page Activity & Idea Book is a viable resource for organizing, presenting, and assimilating knowledge and thought integral to courses in, self-study of, and acquisition of agility in “Agreeable Aging.” Whether you’re using it as a “guiding template” for materials / activity design in (un)related subject matter—or it’s the developing topics themselves that motivate you, this Intro Book is a good place to start.
