About the book

From Dr. Rosanne M. Leipzig, a top doc­tor with more than 35 years of expe­ri­ence car­ing for old­er peo­ple, Hon­est Aging is an indis­pens­able guide to the sec­ond half of life, describ­ing what to expect phys­i­cal­ly, psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly, func­tion­al­ly, and emo­tion­al­ly as you age. Leipzig, an expert in evi­dence-based geri­atrics, high­lights how 80-year-olds dif­fer from 60-year-olds and why know­ing this is impor­tant for your health. With can­dor, humor, and empa­thy, this book will pro­vide you with the knowl­edge and prac­ti­cal advice to opti­mize aging. The book helps you rec­og­nize age-relat­ed changes in your body and mind and under­stand what’s typ­i­cal with aging and what’s not.

Hon­est Aging pro­vides guid­ance for com­mon health con­cerns, includ­ing prob­lems with mem­o­ry, ener­gy, mood, sleep, weight, sex, and more. Leipzig shares advice on how to make deci­sions about health care, dri­ving, and where to live, and she includes help­ful check­lists and lists of med­ica­tions to pre­pare for doc­tor and hos­pi­tal vis­its. Enriched by illus­tra­tions, patient sto­ries, and deep dives into sci­ence and the lat­est research, Hon­est Aging gives you the tools to take con­trol of your health and well-being as you age.
