    Glad it was free...

    I was excited & intrigued to read this book until page 27. The statement that getting Type 1 Diabetes is based entirely upon how you live is, at the very least misleading if not inaccurate. As the parent of a child with type 1 diabetes it offends me. I am wondering if it was simply a typo but have no desire to finish the book. Any credibility it held for me in pages 1-26 cannot be recaptured. As a consumer, I AM glad it was free. That makes deleting less painful. (Apparently this won't post without rating it at least 1 star.)

    Required Reading

    Great guidebook for anyone interested in 'LIVING.' Informative, entertaining, and motivating all in one read. Probably should be required reading for incoming freshman at University. Would have a more lasting impact and retention than most books found on traditional 'required reading' lists. Don Lichtenstein, PhD

    Age Smart is a breath of fresh air when it comes to books on aging

    Whenever the conversation turns to middle age, it is readily apparent that today¿s baby boomers are not their mothers or fathers. Emory Finance Professor, Jeffrey Rosensweig and co-author Betty Liu, an award-winning author and on-air personality took this in account, in Age-Smart-Discovering the Fountain of Youth to Midlife and Beyond. In their just released book, the authors look at finances, spirituality, health and well being as well as other issues that affect aging. With an abundance of `sensory¿ caffeine that rejuvenates the spirit, this easy-to read and-follow book shares tips about living longer and ultimately smarter, as such noted individuals as Roger Staubach, Helen Gurley Brown, Robert Mondavi, Andrew Young and others invite readers to re-think how they `see¿ growing older. Unlike many other books on aging, Age Smart is a `breath of fresh air¿ and I was indeed honored to be asked to contribute to what I predict will be an invaluable resource for many years to come. Carol Gee, author of The Venus Chronicles and Diary of a `Flygirl¿ Wannabe
