Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The internationally revered, Pulitzer Prize-winning father of geriatric medicine offers a revitalizing plan for reaping the rich rewards of the final third of life.

Dr. Robert N. Butler's name is synonymous with healthy aging. As the founder of the first department of geriatric medicine in the country at Mount Sinai and the National Institute on Aging within the National Institutes of Health, he is widely regarded as the father of geriatric medicine. He is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a frequent adviser to the World Health Organization, and the founder of the International Longevity Center, whose mission is to champion research and policy focused on helping our senior population age well and live vibrant lives.

In The Longevity Prescription, Butler outlines eight essential facets of longevity: exercise, nutrition, mental vitality, sleep, relaxation, love and intimacy, community connections, and medical care. With each chapter providing specific, prescriptive advice, that has been proven to delay or eliminate chronic illness and promote health, The Longevity Prescription outlines a step-by-step plan for maintaining optimum wellness and offers eye-opening statistics and research-based information. You may be surprised to learn:

?A good marriage at fifty-not a low cholesterol level at that age-is a better predictor of good health at eighty.

?Stress reduction and a good night's sleep are wellness strategies just as essential as exercise and diet are.

?Why honing a center of balance is a key to physical health.

?How the brain can be trained to regain lost function and ensure continued clarity.

?Why starting a second career in retirement can lead to contentment, and more.

With guidance for formulating an action plan and adopting new habits and strategies, The Longevity Prescription offers the latest information on special health challenges, such as diabetes and cancer.

A baby boomer turns sixty every 7.6 seconds, but many of America's graying millions approach the later years of life with fear and trepidation. Emphasizing clear-cut research findings that balance physical health with emotional well­being, Butler and his colleagues offer a definitive path to whole-life happiness.
