Product Details


For anyone in their fifties, sixties, or beyond, a new way to think about the rest of your life. —Alix Kates Shulman

“What does it mean that Americans now want to retire early, but typically live into their 90s? . . . Rubin, in her early 80s and a very good writer, explores the good news/bad news about greater longevity of today’s Americans.”—David Mehegan, Boston Globe

“A sharp, brazenly honest exposé for the 78 million baby boomers who will grow old over the next two decades and can reasonably expect to survive into their 90s.”—Cathleen Medwick, O Magazine

60 on Up is everything most books on aging are not. It is not sentimental, not filled with stale advice to keep busy, avoid calories, and think young. Instead, it offers authentic wisdom about the complexities of aging. Its fiercely realistic but tender explorations are strangely comforting because they relieve us of the burden of denial and give us a vision of facing our later years with dignity and courage.”—Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly

“With honesty, compassion and a large measure of wit and wisdom . . . Rubin describes in full the world of the elderly in America . . . Revealing and thought-provoking, this book makes a fine, thorough primer for middle-aged adults preparing for ‘this business of getting old.'”—Publishers Weekly
