The title leads you to believe that Miller will be giving his personal experience of aging. But there's very little in the book about that. Miller is a scholar and historian, and devotes the bulk of the book to analyzing classical and ancient texts (including the Bible and Norse tales). And he by no means restricts himself to the subject of aging. He talks about whatever issues are raised by the texts he's interested in: blood feuds, the collection of debts, etc.
Early in the book Miller half-seriously jokes about his own ADD and his tendency to follow the thread of whatever interests him. But once you've followed this meadering book for a couple of hours, the joke doesn't feel so funny anymore.
