    For those of Us Who Are Aging!

    This book will help you identify the parts of aging that you can control. The authors guide you in creating a practical and achievable plan to decelerate your own aging. It explains that there are many elements that we consider "aging" that are not that at all.

    The book is about courage and resilience - the courage to change what can be changed and the resilience to accept what can't be changed. Together they provide a powerful plan for staying young in body, mind and spirit.
