It was almost exactly five hundred years when Ponce de León set off on a New World journey, supposedly to discover a "Fountain of Youth." According to modern health gurus and media hawkers, he was just looking in all the wrong places. Every day, in almost every way, baby boomers are being assured that aging is reversible, that our "golden years" will be, if anything, more wondrous than what has gone before. Susan Jacoby's sage Never Say Die confronts that hype with unblinking realism. Drawing on the long history of our national obsession with youth, she lays out demystifying facts about what new millennium "oldsters" can realistic expect in their coming years.
