Overview

In this paperback edition of his widely praised book, Edward Schneider, M.D., one of the nation's leading experts on aging well, refutes the myth that age equals loss-of our health and physical and mental vigor. Perhaps we can't live forever, but we can control the aging process to significantly reduce our risk of disability and to feel vital and productive throughout our lifetimes.

Drawing on the latest and best aging research, Dr. Schneider has developed an innovative measure called the Longevity Quotient to assess our potential healthspan-the healthy and active part of our lifespan-based on six core components: nutrition, exercise, weight, sleep, social engagement, and hormones. We can raise our individual LQ's in any of these areas by adopting the surprisingly easy, scientifically proven strategies that Dr. Schneider recommends. By living well, we can age well-and age less.
