A practical guidebook designed to show the over 60s how to look after themselves in an increasingly ageist world. Contains many proven medical facts which some readers may find uncomfortable (eg eating meat causes cancer though you are never too old to cut down meat consumption). There is bound to be someone somewhere who smokes 100 a day, eats raw steak three times a week, never exercises, is obese and lives to be 100. But most people who do these things need hospital care and die early. Learn how to retain your freedom, dignity, independence and sense of humour. Stay young in spirit, start again at 65 (or older) and live a bonus life. Replace the depressing, pessimistic certainties of old age with the hope and confidence-drenched ambition usually associated with the young.
