"We haven't done justice to age in the popular press. Margaret Gullette may change that. It will be a more mature country that takes note of so important a voice, giving hope that our culture may yet value wrinkles-the face's road map of experience-accumulated from smiles, tears, and the hard-won wisdom of the body." -Bill Moyers "Eloquent and infuriating, packed with facts and bristling with ideas, Agewise is essential reading for anyone who is 'aging'-which is to say, everyone." -Katha Pollitt"
