Book Review: Counterclockwise by Ellen Langer

COUNTERCLOCKWISE: A proven way to think yourself younger and healthier Ellen Langer has to be one of my favourite researchers, psychologists, writers, and people.  I love her work and she is an amazing person.  To sit down with her over a peppermint tea (me) and martini (her) was a delight.
