Mortality. How willing are you to face the fact of death? Do you expect a long and carefree old age? For a reality check no matter how resigned you are to mortality, read Susan Jacoby’s new book, Never Say Die: The Myth and Marketing of the New Old Age. Jacoby holds a mirror of realism up to the illusions about aging that seem to dominate many perceptions. While she presents a variety of viewpoints, her own opinions and experience can become distracting at times. Despite this shortcoming, the book can encourage readers to think about aging and mortality in ways that are realistic.
Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
