Author of the iconic bestsellers This Is Your Brain on Music i>
and The Organized Mind i>, Daniel Levitin turns his keen insights
to what happens in our brains as we age; why we should think about
health span, not life span; and, based on a rigorous analysis of
neuroscientific evidence, how you can make the most of your seventies,
eighties, and nineties today, no matter how old you are now.
'successful Aging i> uses research from
developmental neuroscience and the psychology of individual
differences to show that sixty-plus years is a unique developmental
stage that, like infancy or adolescence, has its own demands and
distinct advantages. Levitin looks at the science behind what we can
all learn from those who age joyously, as well as how to adapt our
culture to take full advantage of older people's wisdom and
experience. Throughout his exploration of what aging really means,
Levitin reveals resilience strategies and practical, cognitive
enhancing tricks everyone can do as they age.
book is packed with accessible and discussable takeaways, providing
great material for reading groups and media coverage.
'successful Aging i> inspires a powerful
new approach to how readers think about our final decades, and it will
revolutionize the way we plan for old age as individuals, family
members, and citizens within a society where the average life
expectancy continues to rise.
