Rules for Aging: Resist Normal Impulses, Live Longer, Attain Perfection
Acclaimed and beloved prize-winning essayist Roger Rosenblatt has commented on most of the trends and events of our time. His columns in Time magazine and his commentaries on PBS's NewsHour with Jim L...ehrer have made him a household word and a trusted friend of millions. Now, at the dawn of a new millennium, Rosenblatt offers the American people a survival manual-fifty-four gems of funny, brilliant, wise, indispensable advice. It doesn't matter: Whatever you think matters-doesn't. Follow this rule, and it will add decades to your life. It does not matter if you are late, or early; if you are having a bad hair day, or a no hair day; if your boss looks at you cockeyed, or if you are cockeyed; if you don't get that promotion, or if you do. It doesn't matter. Nobody is thinking about you: Yes, I know, you are certain that your friends are becoming your enemies; that your grocer, garbageman, clergyman, sister-in-law, and your dog are all of the opinion that you have put on weight. You are also sure that everyone spends two-thirds of every day commenting on your moral disintegration, denigrating your work, plotting your murder. I promise you: Nobody is thinking about you. They are thinking about themselves-just like you. A book to savor, a book to keep, and a book for all ages.

This Is Getting Old: Zen Thoughts on Aging with Humor and Dignity
in This Intimate And Funny Collection Of Essays On The Sometimes Confusing, Sometimes Poignant, Sometimes Hilarious Condition Of Being A Woman Over Sixty, Susan Moon Keeps Her Sense Of Humor And She K...eeps Her Reader Fully Engaged. Among The Pieces She Has Included  Here Are An Essay On The Gratitude She Feels For Her Weakening Bones; Observations On Finding Herself Both An Orphan And A Matriarch Following The Death Of Her Mother; Musings On Her Tendency To Regret The Past; Thoughts On How Not To Be Afraid Of Loneliness; Appreciation For The Inner Tomboy; And Celebratory Advice On How To Regard Senior Moments As Opportunities To Be In The Here And Now. publishers Weekly in Her Mid-60s, Bay Area Zen Practitioner Moon, Former Editor Of The Buddhist Peace Fellowship’s Turning Wheel Magazine, Writes, “i Wanted To Look Right Into The Face Of Oldness. What Is It?” Gentle Essays Are Grouped Into Three Sections: Mind/body, Relationships, And Spirit. Moon Uses Detail Vividly In Her Determination To Make Peace With The Many Failures Of Brain And Body (from Forgetting Her Social Security Number To Wondering If She’ll Ever Have Sex Again), Though Not All Readers May Want To Follow Her Into The Intricacies Of Retinal Detachment And An Elderly Mother On A Ventilator. Her Best Writing Occurs When Memory, Emotion, And Spirit Coalesce As She Recovers Parts Of Herself Left Behind In Childhood Or Comes To Terms With Solitude. Overall, The Book Is Long On Dignity But A Bit Short On Both Zen And Humor, Focusing On Earnest Self-disclosure. But Moon’s Honesty About The Inner And Outer Realities Of Aging Conveys An Urgent Reminder Of Inevitable Loss; Indeed, As She Reminds Us, “i Am Not Getting Old Alone.” (june)
