Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. The good news is that if we wake up from our delusions we may be better able to grow old with dignity. Susan Jacoby, one of our most perceptive public intellectuals, examines the current myth that it is possible to transcend the vicissitudes of old age by living right. In this fascinating look at the "new old age," she shows that it is pretty much like the old one-marked by declining health, loss of independence, and often dementia.
It is no service to older Americans to demand that they conform, or pretend to conform, to current notions of a serene, wisdom-packed, if passionless, old age. We need to deal with it as it is, not as we would like it to be. See All Customer Reviews.

Free-floating fact-checking initiatives have lately become big non-profit business.
