This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism by Ashton Applewhite - Nonfiction, Sociology

Celadon Books | 9781250311481 | Published March 5, 2019

In our youth-obsessed culture, we’re bombarded by media images and messages about the despairs and declines of our later years. Beauty and pharmaceutical companies work overtime to convince people to purchase products that will retain their youthful appearance and vitality. Wrinkles are embarrassing. Gray hair should be colored and bald heads covered with implants. Older minds and bodies are too frail to keep up with the pace of the modern working world. Ashton Applewhite once held these beliefs too until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does. THIS CHAIR ROCKS traces her journey from apprehensive boomer to pro-aging radical, and in the process debunks myth after myth about late life.
