Susan Jacoby

Susan Jacoby, renowned author of The Age of American Unreason, discusses her new book, Never Say Die: The Myth and Marketing of the New Old Age. Combining historical, social, and economic analysis with personal experiences, Jacoby turns a caustic eye on the modern fiction that old age can be “defied” and the American culture that perpetuates it.
