In a culture infatuated with youth and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave?
Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring. He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age.
Osho's sly sense of humor runs like a red thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives-which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.
"This wise and witty book is the baby boomers' bible! It offers hot tips on maturity as the path to wisdom, the art of transcending problems rather than having to solve them, and the secret of transforming a midlife crisis into a creative explosion." --"Margot Anand, author of The Art of Sexual Ecstasy and The Art of Everyday Ecstasy"

A few chapters down, I got addicted and finished it in one night. I read it a few more times after that in the following days. I had never read any books that written in that style, with such strong and truthful inputs. Maturity is for all, not just for people with age!
p.s. I evaluate a book on its own merits. There are some who are upset with Rajneesh (Osho means "teacher") for his imperfections, but then Tibetan teacher Chogyam Trungpa as well as many Zen masters in America have also demonstrated such (or worse) faults-as Western society weighs things. While excuses, explanations, & reasons abound, IMHO it is unrealistic to expect one's teachers to be perfect (despite "deity yoga"). The Buddha told his disciples to think for themselves, not to just take his word for things. Biblically: "Judge not lest ye be judged" & financially: "Let the buyer beware."
