I was disappointed in this book. I was expecting insightful essays on aging and instead there were somewhat tedious life stories with maybe a paragraph or two about aging. I was so discouraged and irritated by the essays that I confess I only read 1/4 of the book. Perhaps I've missed the better ones by not continuing, who knows?
If you really want to read a good book about aging, I strongly recommend Barbara Macdonald's & Cynthia Rich's book, "Look Me in the Eye: Old Women, Aging and Ageism". It's amazing, amazing, amazing.
