"With a baby boomer turning sixty every ten seconds, we are rapidly becoming an aging society. But cutting edge research on the connection between age and disease shows us that many of the preconceptions we had about how to grow old need a second look. This groundbreaking book is full of take-away prescriptive advice which the nearly seventy-five million boomers in this nation will value. Top gerontologist and Stanford medical school professor Dr. Walter Bortz and co-author Randall Stickrod draw on new science and a thirty-year longitudinal study of centenarians to show that: Genetics plays a smaller role in aging than previously thought, Senility, dementia, and other diseases of the elderly, are largely preventable and not an inevitable consequence of aging, Engagement, through sexual relationships, social interaction, and professional activity, is a key factor in long, healthy lives, Physical fitness can recover at least 30 years of aging Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, The Roadmap to 100 gives you the power to control your own destiny and live well beyond 100"--Provided by publisher.

Bortz does a good job of packing Roadmap to 100 with many interesting facts. I like stats and studies - that back up what an author is saying - quantitatively. That way I know that it is not just the author's opinion about things, or that they are not just speculating. However, there were times while reading that I was becoming weary of the over-emphasis of certain points. For example. I get it that exercise - specifically aerobic exercise - is the most important - critical thing. It just seemed to harp on it a little too much.
