A guide based on the thesis that a well-informed individual can in large measure determine the quality and even the duration of his or her life after 50. The authors emphasize a positive approach to aging and health, discussing a number of non-Western and unorthodox treatment alternatives. Part 1 discusses exercise, diet, and nutrition and includes exercises and useful tables. An informative presentation on memory, stress control, and self-help for depression makes the "mind-body" connection. A section on the external environment treats social support and self-defense techniques. The remainder of the book povides medical resources, e.g., a comprehensive categorization of symptoms and a classified listing of drugs with a trade names/generic names table. Recommended.
