20 REASONS YOU WON’T GROW OLD LIKE THlS: HOW AGEING IS CHANGING IN THE 21ST CENTURY by Margaret Gullan-Whur

20 Reasons – a report on how the generation that defied society in the 1960s is shattering stale images of ageing.  An eye-opener for people in their forties who are already sensitive to ageism and gloomy about the idea of working on to  seventy.   A stimulating read for age-defying 50-60-pluses who still see being old as their own aged parents’ thing, not their own.  A wake-up call for policymakers, health-care professionals and manufacturers who plan on treating the old of the future as more of the same, with the same old attitudes and needs.
