Dr. Daniel J. Levitin Shares Insights into SUCCESSFUL AGING via Crowdcast (1/28)
Join New York Times bestselling author Dr. Daniel J. Levitin for a discussion of his latest book, SUCESSFUL AGING (Dutton), in conversation with Dr. Moira Gunn, host of NPR Tech Nation and BioTech Nation, via Crowdcast on Thursday, January 28 at 9:30 pm (ET).
SUCCESSFUL AGING delivers a range of insights:
• Debunking the myth that memory always declines with age
• Confirming that “health span”—not “life span”—is what matters
• Proving that sixty-plus years is a unique and newly recognized developmental stage
• Recommending that people look forward to joy, as reminiscing doesn’t promote health
Dr. Levitin looks at the science behind what we all can 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, using research from developmental neuroscience and the psychology of individual differences, Levitin reveals resilience strategies and practical, cognitive- enhancing tricks everyone should do as they age.
SUCCESSFUL AGING 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.
