    The Art of Aging: A Doctor's Prescription for Well-Being

    The notion of age taking people by surprise when they realize they are no longer able to engage in some activities is nothing new. Athletes are a prime example, but the fact remains that everyone faces the inevitable decline in abilities ushered in by the passing of time. With ¿The Art of Aging: A Doctor¿s Prescription for Well-Being,¿ author and doctor Sherwin B. Nuland proposes that by accepting coming changes and altering past expectations to fit current capabilities, people can have a quality of life in later years that is still immensely fulfilling. Besides offering advice on how to soften the physical effects of aging, Nuland asserts that people can find rewards in life by keeping a steady group of quality friends and embracing opportunities to be creative. Nuland augments his suggestions for maintaining a zest for life by profiling well-known figures such as Michael DeBakey, a renowned cardiac surgeon who was still professionally active at the age of 98. Readers of The Art of Aging might be pleasantly surprised to learn that age does not necessarily deserve such a negative connotation.

    Enjoyed this book, it confirmed ideas and information I read in other books on the same subject.

    As the heading says above, I didn't find anything really new in this book, but it did confirm information I have read in other books on the same subject.
