Reviews - What do customers think about Aging Well: The Complete Guide to Physical and Emotional Health?

Simply great!  Oct 28, 2001
I am an avid reader of books on health and I found this book to be a real gem for my library collection.
I have presented it to many of my friends over the age of 40 - for I believe that "aging well" should start early. This book has helped me and my parents, and all other relatives and friends enormously. It should be on everyone's bookshelf.
A Great book  Oct 17, 2001
This book is an excellent reference for anyone interested in the aging process.
It is easy to read and yet provides a depth of knowledge not readily available in other books.
It is also a superb gift for anyone who enjoys life and desires to continue doing it, by aging well!
A Treasure of information  Jan 15, 2001
I have really enjoyed reading this book. It has given me insight into the aging process from a medical and scientific point of view which very few books do. Armed with this knowledge, I feel more confident about taking care of my parents and of my own health. Thank you Dr. Jeanne Wei and Dr. Sue Levkoff for sharing with us this wealth of information!
Excellent reference  Jan 11, 2001
This was an excellent resource for my wife and I. All aspects of aging are covered. It has help us be more educated when we discuss things with our physicians. It also has allowed us to ask appropriate questions and really get a handle on our disease. I recommened it for everyone
Superb and most comprehensive  Oct 22, 2000
This book really is an encyclopedia of knowledge about the process of aging as well as the various diseases commonly found in older individuals. It covers every organ system in the body and even provides information on the medications used to treat the age-related disorders. The book also covers the social impact of aging, and gives a list of useful resources for assitance. It promises no magic potions for reversal of the aging process, but provides accurate and scientific information to improve one's health, no matter how frail. Aging is an invetable process, and for those of us who are realistic, this book is superb!
