“Jo Ann Jenkins’s Disrupt Aging is spot-on: every year is a gift. By confronting the most prevalent stereotypes about aging, this book will help us all live each and every year to the fullest.” —Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org
We’ve all seen the ads on TV along with magazines—“50 would be the new 30!” or “60 could be the new 40!” A nice sentiment to be assured, but CEO of AARP Jo Ann Jenkins disagrees. 50 is 50, and she or he, for starters, likes the design of it.
In Disrupt Aging, Jenkins is targeted on three core areas—health, wealth, and self—to indicate us how you can embrace opportunities and change the best way we look at growing older. Here, she chronicles her very own journey understanding that of other people who are making their mark as disruptors to demonstrate readers the way you can be active, healthy, and happy once we get older. Through this powerful and engaging narrative, she touches on every one of the important issues facing people 50+ today, from caregiving and mindful living to building age-friendly communities and making our money last.
This is really a book for each of the makers and doers that have a prefer to continue exploring possibilities, to celebrate discovery over decline, as well as seek out the possiblility to live the most effective life there may be.
