We've all seen the ads on TV and in magazines-"Fifty is the new thirty!" A nice sentiment, but CEO of AARP Jo Ann Jenkins disagrees. Fifty is fifty, and she, for one, likes the look of it. In Disrupt Aging, Jenkins focuses on three core areas-health, wealth, and self-to show us how to embrace opportunities and change the way we look at getting older. Here, she chronicles her own journey and that of others who are making their mark as disruptors to show readers how we can be active, healthy, and happy as we get older. This is a book for all the makers and doers who have a desire to continue exploring possibilities, to celebrate discovery over decline, and to seek out opportunities to live the best life there is.

I thought this book might offer a more personal "how to" about navigating life after 60. To me it was more about societal changes and that was an informative read as well.
Joanne has given us a road to travel in this book. She has told us where the road goes and what to expect along way and has even given us a map to get where we want to go. If we need help along the way, we are shown where and how to get it. It is a must read for anyone over the age of 21.
