Description: In the last decade, gerontology has been revolutionized, largely due to the MacArthur Foundation Study of Aging in America. Under the leadership of Drs. John W. Rowe and Robert L. Kahn, the study created a network of leading research scientists from key fields to determine what aging actually involves. Rejecting the established approach of studying aging in terms of anticipated decline, these researchers set out to identify the factors that were enabling vast numbers of people to preserve and even enhance their mental and physical vitality later in life.

"Successful Aging" brings together the remarkable results of the study and promises to change the way readers look at the process of growing older. Finding that lifestyle choices, more than genetics, determine how well people age, Drs. Rowe and Kahn outline those vital choices to help readers everywhere achieve optimum health. Covering changes in diet, types of exercise, and mental stimulation, among others, "Successful Aging" shows that the right choices can make a difference no matter how late in life they are made.

For readers of any age, this eye-opening work shows how the great rewards of successful aging can be attained and enjoyed. With prescriptive advice for life in the workplace, in the family, and in the community, "Successful Aging" offers a fulfilling new way to live.
