HOW WE AGE: A Doctor’s Journey into the Heart of Growing Old
A young doctor’s reflections on his experiences as a nursing-home psychiatrist—and the remarkable stories of vitality, connection, and growth that transformed his view of aging In the tradition of Atul Gawande and Sherwin Nuland, Marc Agronin writes luminously and unforgettably of life as he sees it as a doctor. His beat is a nursing home in Miami that some would dismiss as “God’s waiting room.” Nothing in the young doctor’s medical training had quite prepared him for what he was to discover there. As Agronin first learned from ninety-eight-year-old Esther and then from countless others, the true scales of aging aren’t one-sided—you can’t list the problems of aging without also tallying the hopes and promises. Drawing on moving personal experiences and on in-depth interviews with pioneers in the field, Agronin conjures a spellbinding look at what aging means today—how our bodies and brains age, and the very way we look at aging.
