When we do so, we will create the potential of longer lives that young people can look forward to and older people can live their fullest in. I found myself disagreeing with the notion that hospitals shouldn't prioritize the young over the old however this is a problem that exists purely because usually health care systems are capitalistic and therefore there's an ROI concept embedded in its functioning. She brings a unique perspective about a question we are all concerned with: what happens as we age and get older?

And Levy has numerous examples of people at advanced ages who made great contributions to their lives and the lives of others. I received a digital galley of this book in exchange for an honest review, and will include it in a TBR round-up for Women's Health Month in May. Maybe that's because I see so many people like me, of all ages, who are so nonchalant about something that really is quite important. Had it been presented in 100 pages or so with all the bibliography attached, it would have been strong.Even though Levy's chatty style kinda bugged me (which is rare for me, usually I am all for a chatty informal style) and she gave too many personal stories as examples, this book ended up being better than I thought it would be. She also presents a variety of fascinating people who have benefited from positive age beliefs as well as an entire town that has flourished with these beliefs. She details the scope and effects of ageism (perhaps especially virulently against women) countering the m with many examples of vibrant older people.

Now if I had heard that (being a baby boomer and, hence, rebellious by nature), I would have just ignored silly advice from a clueless white male. Dozens of my own friends and acquaintances from 50-90 are as healthy, happy, productive and active as I am. Over 90% of Deaf individuals are born to hearing parents, so when young Deaf people meet older Deaf people, they often develop admiration and often form strong ties with these role models with whom they share an identity.

But the selective presentation, for example, of the glories of centenarian worship in Japan without much mention of the fish and vegetables based diet and low level of obesity in the periods studied raised questions.To briefly sum things up, this book concerns the psychological and social implications of age-related beliefs. However, and this is why I started with the recommendation, I have some major bones to pick with this one. I lived with him in Florida during that period and spent many hours taking him to doctors of various types. His nurses would speak to a 90 year old man in the high-pitched voice you might use for a child or a dog. Foundational cultural rot and the de-emphasis of the family exacerbates ageism because there is mechanism teaching children to respect elders, or anyone else for that matter.
