Why do we believe that aging is the cause of most of our declining abilities, aches, pains and diagnoses as we get older?

Age and aging actually have much less to do with how you feel and function than you think. This book challenges your assumptions and beliefs about aging, and provides a fresh, new understanding of how and why we grow old.

Is there a better way to think about aging?

Yes. Live Young, Think Young, Be Young explains the three pillars that determine how fast we age:


  • Real aging, the mysterious process that no one understands
  • Disuse, both physical and mental
  • Chronic disease processes, which can begin at the earliest stages of life

Understanding these concepts will help you identify the parts of aging that you can control. The authors guide you in creating a practical, achievable plan to decelerate your own aging.

This 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.
