Publisher's Summary

We've all seen the ads on TV and in magazines - "50 is the new 30!" or "60 is the new 40!" A nice sentiment to be sure, but CEO of AARP Jo Ann Jenkins disagrees. Fifty is 50, and she, for one, likes the look of it.
In Disrupt Aging, Jenkins focuses on three core areas - health, wealth, and self - to show us how to embrace opportunities and change the way we look at getting older. Here, she chronicles her own journey and the journeys of others who are making their marks as disruptors to show listeners how we can be active, healthy, and happy as we get older. Through this powerful and engaging narrative, she touches on all the important issues facing people who are 50+ today, from caregiving and mindful living to building age-friendly communities and making our money last.
This is a book for all the makers and doers who have a desire to continue exploring possibilities, to celebrate discovery over decline, and to seek out opportunities to live the best life there is.

More policy than I hoped

This is an important topic, and I think Jo Ann Jenkins does a good job of highlighting many substantial issues about aging today. But t
he second half of the book deals mainly with policy issues. I guess this is typical for the CEO of AARP -- that she should use her platform to urge policy changes in aging. But I was hoping for more personal tips on living my own life.

A Great Compilation of Scattered Information

Where does Disrupt Aging rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I thought this book was great. I have heard many of the ideas and concepts before, but this book brings it all together in a logical order. There are many new concepts that I had not realized before, but they help to bring the big picture into focus. The anecdotes that the author reflects make it easier to comprehend the ideas. I found myself nodding my head and agreeing with many sections of the book. Some of the information may seem like common sense, but if you haven't heard it before it can be eye opening.

What does Jo Ann Jenkins and Kimberly Farr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have actually purchased both the audio and hardcopy book. I like to refer to the hardcopy for technical reference and to refresh my memory of some of the concepts (i.e. the three-legged stool becoming a four-legged stool).
The narrator (Kimberly) owns this book. Kimberly's voice is pleasant and clear to listen to. You would swear that she wrote the book by the way she takes ownership of it. Her inflections bring out the true meaning of the phrases that were intended by the author. You can't get that by reading the printed words.
