Early Reviews for Ashton Applewhite’s This Chair Rocks: “An Essential Tool for Healthy and Happy Aging.”

Ageism is the last acceptable “ism” says Ashton Applewhite, author of This Chair Rocks—the powerful anti-ageism manifesto that Publishers Weekly called “a valuable resource, an agent for social change, and an enjoyable read.”   

Booklist calls it “a fierce and funny yet practical and thoughtful manifesto on how such negativity can be combated on individual and societal levels. Offering much food for thought and abundant realistic steps to engender positive change, Applewhite's guide is an essential tool for enjoying healthy and happy aging.”


Applewhite’s TED talk below garnered a standing ovation and has been viewed almost two million times.
