Twenty years ago I screwed up my courage and sent a copy of my book, Cutting Loose: Why Women Who End Their Marriages Do So Well, to the author and historian Stephanie Coontz, one of my culture heroes. Six months later the phone rang. It was Stephanie, asking if I’d like to join the nascent Council on Contemporary Familes, now the go-to resource for reliable research about American families as they really are. Here’s what she had to say about This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism:
“An eloquent and well-researched exposé of the prejudice that feeds age bias, and a passionate argument to mobilize against it. This must-read book is also a fun read — for every age!”
— Stephanie Coontz, author, The Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia Trap

I provide cousneling to soldiers and their spouses. For the wives who decide to leave, your book is what I recommend. Thanks.
