Synopsis: We live in a society that opposes aging, despite the evidence that each of us is, in fact, aging. This anti-aging bias has prevented us from thinking about old age in a way that feels good or that will create a good elderhood. Removing our ageist blinders, Dr. Thomas provides a motivational and visionary blueprint for old age as a healing force in society.

About the Author: William H. Thomas, M.D., is a Harvard Medical School graduate, an author, a geriatrician, a consultant for AARP, and a speaker to diverse health care professionals, academics, and other researchers. He is president of two not-for-profit organizations that promote holistic approaches to aging and elder care. Winner of the America's Award (established by Norman Vincent Peale and sometimes called "The Nobel Prize for Goodness"), the Molly Mettler Award from the Health Promotion Institute, and an award from the Giraffe Project (for sticking his neck out), Bill Thomas most recently has received a three-year fellowship from Ashoka, a global nonprofit organization that searches the world for social entrepreneurs--extraordinary individuals with unprecedented ideas for change in their communities.
