How to stay Healthy, Active and Sharp in Retirement

The most exciting thing we discovered while compiling this book was that being on the other side of 50 doesn’t mean that there’s nothing we can do to prevent declining physical and mental health. Sure, we’ll have to accept that we’re no longer in our 30s, but we can retain much of our physical and mental fitness and certainly slow down the ageing process.

I enjoyed reading a book that offered practical, useful advice about the medical challenges that I have to face in my 60s.

I have read the book. It's fabulous. Its well written, not too technical, engaging. I couldn't but agree with the thrust of each section. I have been researching diet and exercise for a while now, and must say the contributions seem spot on. Congratulations

I had always thought that getting older meant getting frailer and sicker. It’s encouraging to read that I can take steps that can keep me fitter and healthier in the years ahead.
