If you dread getting old, you need this book, whether you’re 35 or 85.

People don’t dread getting old because they fear death. They fear stereotypes.

Ageism makes you sick. Ageism can literally take years off your life.

Most chirpy-cheery books tell you to fight ageism with attitude.

This book tells you exactly where you can put that advice. You’re encouraged to embrace your bitchiest self. Speak out, speak up, and don’t shy away from those 4-letter words.

Get ready to question “what everybody knows” about people designated “older,” which could be any age north of fifty.

She’s old enough to experience ageism. Otherwise, her age is irrelevant.
