I’m no connoisseur of the genre (in fact I’m quite skeptical...) but Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life definitely delivers as billed. Part presentation of cutting edge research into circadian rhythms, part beginner’s elucidation of the Ayurvedic tradition corroborated by said research, the book is eminently practical, wholly workable, and might actually change your life — albeit in the most minute, sustainable, of ways.

Michael Kinsley, who turned sixty-five this year, is arguably too young to have written a book he’s calling a primer to growing old. But as he acknowledges in Old Age: A Beginner’s Guide (Tim Duggan, $18), Kinsley has been nothing if not precocious for a good part of his career. Besides, he got a head start on experiencing and thinking about ageing when, at forty-three, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. This is a thin, small book, but it’s filled with insight, wit, and Kinsley’s characteristic well-pitched prose.

Michael Kinsley delivers some of the harsh and stark realities of growing old with his dark and biting wit. If you don't have dementia or some other terrible disease now, don't worry, you'll be in the club soon. So with that truth as your starting point how will you evaluate what is most important? Material wealth? Longevity? Mental prowess? Life is a race but Kinsley, who claims to be ahead of us all with a diagnosis of early onset Parkinson's disease, asks us to consider what's at the finish line.
