            Ageing is the biggest cause of disease in our society. Cancer, heart disease, dementia, flu: the risk of all increase staggeringly rapidly as we near the end of life. What if we could slow down the process - or even stop it? The End of Ageing introduces us to the cutting-edge res...earch that is paving the way for a revolution in medicine. We currently focus on treating individual diseases as we grow older, but there might soon be a way of treating the ailment that underpins them all: the ageing process itself. Computational biologist Andrew Steele explains what is happening as we age, and how understanding its scientific implications could lead to the greatest discovery in the history of medicine - one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars, and transform the human condition.

            ** Pre-order the most important book you'll ever read about the second half of your life now. ** We are all apprentice old people. More and more of us are living to a very great age. But how do we give those we love, and eventually ourselves, a chance to be older as happily and h...ealthily as we possibly can? Dr Lucy's book looks at answers, to questions big and small, and helps us understand that long life is something to be celebrated and embraced. Most situations, she tells us, are solvable. Is it normal to find you're falling out of love with your partner of many years, who is disappearing into dementia? * When does 'fiercely independent' turn into 'badly behaved'? * How do you navigate the near impossible discussions around resuscitation, intensity of treatments, power of attorney? * How do you get doctors to listen? * Should your mother be taking seven different medicines? * Are we all doomed to an incontinent future? * Should Dad be driving, and if not, who can stop him? * What does a good care home look like? This practical book, full of warmth, humour, philosophy, joy and real-life stories, is by a doctor who has worked her entire career as a geriatrician, caring for people who have complicated problems and who need answers to the delicate questions that arise as we get older. In the end, it comes down to finding a way to talk about it all with the people we love as well as the professionals. Only then, perhaps, can we make a better life for the older people in our families and communities and, ultimately, for ourselves.

[New Para] Ageing Well is a manual for older age, it explores ideas on how we can live the later part of our lives with more passion and enjoyment by creating joy, managing moods, avoiding stereotypes, working towards better psychological health, training the brain, focusing on emotional intelligence and much more.
