Aging is a subject of concern to everyone, but is widely misunderstood. If we view it as inevitable, we miss the fact that not everyone is able to grow to an old age. Realization of this reality helps us to understand that aging presents a wonderful opportunity - an opportunity to make choices about how we live which can enhance the aging process and offer a chance to live to our potential. This book clearly presents the four, multiple reserve, factors (cognitive, physical, psychological and social) which impact our ability to have healthy responses to the stresses of aging. By giving the biological basis for the advice given, you will learn the steps to take in your activities, diet and mental outlook to grasp the opportunity that aging offers. Everyone must know that what we do makes a difference.
“Rooted on his vast clinical and research experience, Dr. Friedland takes us on an accessible scientific tour to demystify the inevitability of aging. Dementia, he highlights with a wealth of examples, is not preordained in anyone, even in individuals with high-risk genetic mutations or with brain amyloid plaques. Dr. Friedland reviews the evidence accumulated to make his case that specific changes in our own environment can shape how we age – or not.” - Alberto Espay, author of Brain Fables: The Hidden History of Neurodegenerative Diseases and a Blueprint to Conquer Them
“This book is a ‘must read’ for anyone who would like to use the latest scientific studies to help them live healthier lives as they age.” - Andrew E. Budson, author of Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory: What’s Normal, What’s Not, and What to Do About It
