The empowering message from this book is that being in our 50s, 60s and 70s doesn’t automatically mean being old, frail and sick.

If we follow the advice from the 15 leading health experts who contributed chapters to this book, it’s possible to delay the ageing process and have a better quality of life in our later years. This also means reducing the chances of getting Dementia and some of the other unpleasant ailments that can affect older people.

I have read the book. It’s fabulous. Its well written, not too technical, engaging. I couldn’t but agree with the thrust of each section. I have been researching diet and exercise for a while now, and must say the contributions seem spot on. Congratulations

I had always thought that getting older meant getting frailer and sicker. It’s encouraging to read that I can take steps that can keep me fitter and healthier in the years ahead.

    I was given this book by my super fund at a retirement seminar. It was the best part of the seminar as it gave me lots of practical suggestions that I could act on. As a result of reading this book, I’m a lot fitter and 5 kilos lighter.

  2. John Patrick

    I found this to be a very useful book as it was written for people over 50 and addressed the kind of problems that we face as various bits start to malfunction. As a result of reading it, I’m now definately healthier

  3. Marie Donachie

    What a refreshing and useful book. Instead of talking about the various illnesses that plague the over 60s, this book is all about how we can reduce our chances of becoming feeble and unwell. It’s easy to read and the information and advice has credability as most of the chapters are written by leading health professionals.
    Interestingly the book addresses both physical and mental health and wellbeing and the strong bond between our mind and our body. My husband and I found it extremely useful.

  4. Russell Mackenzie

    A friend recommended this book to me and I’m very glad he did. It addresses all the major health issues that people over 60 need to be aware of. Obviously the older we get, the more health challenges we face. This book contains lots of good information for people over 60 as well as practical advice on how to avoid many of the illnesses that slow down older people. It has certainly helped me to become healthier and I have recommended it to a number of friends.

  5. Phil Lockwood

    A very handy book. It’s easy to read and packed with good information. I’d recommend it.
