Summary:Melding a scientist's passion for truth with a humanist's understanding of the heart and soul, professor of surgery Nuland explores the impact of aging on our minds and bodies, strivings and relationships. The onset of aging can be so gradual that we are often surprised to find that one day it is fully upon us. The changes to the senses, appearance, reflexes, physical endurance, and sexual appetites are undeniable--and rarely welcome--and yet, as Dr. Nuland shows, getting older has its surprising blessings. Age concentrates not only the mind, but the body's energies, leading many to new sources of creativity, perception, and spiritual intensity. Growing old, Nuland teaches us, is not a disease but an art--and for those who practice it well, it can bring extraordinary rewards. Nuland also examines the latest research into extending life and the scientists who are pursuing it.--From publisher description.
