The New 60: Outliving Yourself and Reinventing a Future

by Robert Levithan (ISBN 1468009893)

Robert Levithan shows how the author’s youthful spirit and positive attitude have kept him from fearing old age. Levithan represents a unique demographic as an HIV+ gay man who was expected to die 20 years ago. Not only has Levithan survived and thrived, but he has also created an exciting life that embraces the challenges of aging.

Levithan describes his work as a book about aging in the 21st century. “We are free to choose the quality of our life, yet we sometimes approach aging with a fearful attitude,” he says. Throughout “The New 60,” he shows how his life experiences have given him the strength to age with vitality and grace.
