The changes to the senses, appearance, -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen as there are excellent chapters about making choices 16. Februar 2015
Von BriarCraft - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As I have aged, there were times when I wondered, "Is this normal? Or is something wrong?" You can't get a straight answer from a doctor. If you know enough old people, you can do an informal survey to come to your own conclusion. Or you can read this book. I found the book refreshing, informative, and yes, even reassuring. It talks about How We Age -- what, why, and how the process happens to all of us who live long enough.
But that is only the beginning, as there are excellent chapters about making choices, and for lack of a better description, how to age gracefully and get the most out of life. The latter is discussed with a view toward living an active life, followed by a short period of decline before death. There is so much useful information that, a year after reading this book, I am about to read it again just to refresh my memory. This should be required reading for anyone on the high side of 50, or for anyone who loves someone on the high side of 50.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and encouraging 27. April 2010
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I first encountered this book as an audio book through my local library. I was so intrigued with parts of it after listening that I purchased a used copy through Amazon. Perhaps it is a little wordy at times, as other reviewers have noted, but you get the sense of man with a great vocabulary, a brilliant mind, and a certain style of writing that shines with a genuine caring for people.

In my opinion, chapter six alone is worth the price of the book. Through a series of letters written to an older widow, the author addresses the topic of depression and aging in a way that is tender, thoughtful and incredibly respectful of this woman's point of view. If you are a person facing the changes associated with aging yourself, or know of a friend or family member who may be having difficulty with some of the issues we will all face sooner or later, I highly recommend this book as a guide in shaping a realistic, yet positive outlook on the aging process.
2.0 von 5 Sternen A few parts of this book were useful and thought-provoking 3. September 2016
Von Deirdre S. Cleary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A few parts of this book were useful and thought-provoking. Too much of it gave endless personal detail about various theories about aging and the people who formulated those theories. Example: Pages and pages profiling a man who believes that we have the right -- and the potential capability -- to live 500-1,000 years. Truly absurd.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Wise and Provocative Book 19. August 2009
Von Susan A. Lieberman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book made me smarter about what to expect in the coming decades (I'm 67) and wiser about how I might deal with what comes. It is both provoctive...in that I am, weeks later, still thinking about issues the book raised...and supportive. For me, understanding reduces anxiety. Nuland writes accessibly and, by the end of the book, I felt it would be pleasure to have him for a friend as well as a doctor. The friend who recommended the book said,"Oh, you will know most of what is in it." But even though I am married to a physician and have read widely on aging, I did know most of what was in it...and am glad I now do. I recommend this book highly to anyone on the deep end of middle age.
3.0 von 5 Sternen OK, heavy on anecdotes, little specific guidelines 4. November 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A nicely written and compassionate book by a doctor in his 70"s, however very heavy on anecdotal stories which I did not find particularly helpful. I was hoping for something a little more specific in terms of how to cope with getting older. Knowing that other people have breezed through it is not particularly helpful, though it can be inspiring.
