Published by Penguin Life, Your One Wild and Precious Life: An Inspiring Guide to Becoming Your Best Self At Any Age offers a framework for embracing middle age and beyond – from acclaimed psychologist and No 1 bestselling author of Flourishing.
Using the latest ground-breaking research, leading psychologist Maureen Gaffney has written an inspiring and practical guide for getting to grips with time. Taking the key stages of our life - from infancy to old age - she explores what we learn at each stage. And, crucially, she explains how, no matter what has happened in the past, and what age you are, you can find a better route forward.
It is a book to fundamentally alter your relationship with time and show you that every age can be your best age.

“No matter where you locate yourself in this book there’s an energy to the prose that makes it a fascinating read… This book is a powerful reminder that history does not have to dictate our future”
