Never Say Die

Susan Jacoby, Author, The Age of American Unreason, Alger Hiss and the Battle for History and Never Say Die

Jacoby unmasks the fallacies promoted by what she calls 21st century hucksters of longevity - businessmen predicting that 90 may soon become the new 50 and that a “cure” for the “disease” of aging is just around the corner, and wishful thinkers asserting that older means wiser. Today, as the oldest boomers turn 65, it is imperative, says Jacoby, to distinguish between marketing hype and realistic hope about what lies ahead for the more than 70 million Americans who will be beyond the traditional retirement age by 2030.
