What do longer life spans mean for the way we organise our societies? How can people best prepare themselves for living considerably longer? Does it help to eat less, or to take hormones, vitamins or minerals? What can we learn from old people who remain full of vitality, despite illness and infirmity? This investigation of a key issue for the 21st century is written by one of the world's leading experts in geriatric medicine. Combining medical, biological, economic and sociological insights, it examines the above questions and more.
