"This book is a must read for anyone who is aging — and that is every one of us! Ageism Unmasked takes the reader on a journey of understanding the roots of ageism, its impact and what each of us can do to create a new reality of elderhood. It’s a fascinating and inspirational read —  a true game-changer and society-changer!"
--Jill Vitale-Aussem, author ofDisrupting the Status Quo of Senior Living
