Review: Library Journal - November 15, 2007
“Rubin tells it like it is. A sociologist, psychotherapist, author, and octogenarian, she is very smart and very angry—and highly readable—as she uses both scholarly and popular references to describe how, despite the media’s bombardment of messages to the contrary, 60 today is most assuredly not the new 40—Botox, Viagra, and plastic surgery notwithstanding…Rather than perceiving aging as a disease that must be conquered, Rubin encourages us to accept its inevitability and to plan accordingly…in this clear-sighted wake-up call.”

“Once you get past media-fed fantasies about aging, you see that in our society, getting old means turning invisible. And Rubin, 83, should know. Author of 11 books on an array of human predicaments, she’s now written a sharp, brazenly honest exposé for the 78 million baby boomers who will grow old over the next two decades and can reasonably expect to survive into their 90s.”
