They include attention to a nutritionall based diet, plenty of moderate exercise, and the need to achieve emotional tranquility. Successful Ageing contains up-to-date information about the prevention of heart disease, cancer, dementia and many other common diseases. It also provides 'mrategies for overcoming the psychological challenges eaused by retirement and bereavement. Anyone -but espescially those over fifty - will benefit from the practical suggestions contained in Successful Ageing.
