I really wanted to like this book. For some reason, I thought it would be much more amusing. It was a really quick read, which was nice, but I didn't find a lot of new information in it. Overall it was a decent book, just not what I expected. ( )

An easy to read book on the medical issues of growing older. David Bernstein is a doctor treating the older (60-up . he provides exerpiences working with older patient and includes at the end of each chapter Notes on living longer and references to that chapter.
Book contains both positive and negative stories as well as personal family stories to illustrate how one can live longer and happier.

I would recommend this book to be in the office of all doctors dealing with older patients as well as assistant living and nursing homes. Great guide for the person and the family of that person. I found the chapter on driving reflected my mother's positive experience with her Doctor when it was time to give it up. ( )

Dr Bernstein is an engaging storyteller and I enjoyed his many anecdotes. I read this at a strange time. I had a friends in the hospital facing terminal and chronic illnesses. I finished it in time to attend a memorial. I had expected something more specific about what kinds of things to expect in the different decades as we age. But this was more a collection of patients' stories. I liked his rule of five, but he forgot to follow it in the subsequent chapters. He does have some concrete things to do to improve one's aging process and offers good resources at the end of each chapter. It did cause me to ponder and try to put myself in the patient's shoes. How would I react? Maybe taking time to do this will improve my attitude as I face the problems of aging.

I was grateful to receive a free copy of this book through the Early Reviewers program at LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I received a free copy of this book through the Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review.

Dr. Bernstein has been practicing as a geriatrician for many years, so he definitely has the background to write this book. He offers some sound advice on how to deal with the various obstacles associated with aging, and he accompanies the advice with stories from his practice. In concept this book is great, but the execution is a bit lacking. The advice is good, but I like to see studies behind the advice or lend it some credence. Yes, we know it's good to have a positive attitude, but his anecdotes seem trite and occasionally, too focused on his role and not the patient. There are so many good advice books on aging - most recently Atul Gawande's Being Mortal and Roz Chast's Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?. Gawande's book is not only filled with sage advice, but he provides information about current research and adds to the mix his skill at telling a story. Chast knows how to pull at your heartstrings. I didn't feel that this book touched me emotionally, or really was any better than getting advice from someone you don't really know. Hope other people find it more useful. ( )

My copy of this book by Dr. Bernstein was given to me by Library Thing's Early Reviewers Program in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Dr. Bernstein has over 30 years of experience in geriatrics and internal medicine so he's certainly well-qualified to write this book. It should be required reading for all medical-school students and for every adult since we are all aging. It advices young adults on what to expect from their aging parents with hints on how to handle various situations.

Drawing on experiences that have happened to his patients and relatives, Dr. Bernstein tells what happens to us physically, socially, spiritually, and mentally as we travel life's path. At the end of each chapter, he includes notes on how to live longer. He covers lots of topics and recommends resources to better understand getting ready to be old.

Highly recommended with 5 Stars! ( )

Introduction
Why I Practice Geriatric Medicine

Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
—Groucho Marx

You know you're getting old when all the names in your black book have M.D. after them.
—Arnold Palmer

You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
—George Burns


I am frequently asked what attracts me to taking care of the elderly. The answer is neither simple nor the same everyday. It certainly is not for the money. A long time ago the great philosopher, "my mother," told me to become a dermatologist. If she was referring to money and life style, she was right.
Chapter 1
GRACE is a 5 Letter Word
Living it up to live longer


Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.
—Maurice Chevalier

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
—Chili Davis

Through my early adulthood, the number 5 had no particular significance in my life; however, as a young boy growing up, a favorite number revolved around famous athletes. Forty-one was my favorite number because the all-star pitcher for the New York Mets, Tom Seaver, proudly wore that number. When I had a chance to choose a uniform number as a high school athlete, I chose the number 24 because that was the number Willie Mays and Bill Bradley wore (number 41 was too high and was rarely available). If the number 24 was not available I took number 12, which was half of 24. In reality, the number was really no big deal; I was just happy to make the team.
