What are Old People For?: How Elders Will Save the World

Voorkant
Publisher:VanderWyk&Burnham, 2004 - 370 pagina's
It has been said that people don't want to read books about aging, but this one is different. In the tradition of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, this book offers readers a new way of looking at life and the world. Written by a doctor and specialist in aging, the book draws upon popular culture, history, science, and literature to create a highly readable, and persuasive case for a new kind of old age. The old way of seeing old age-as a time of decline and defeat - will be of little interest to boomers as they search for new ways to interpret their experience.
