Descriptions du produit

As they reach middle age, most men begin looking forward to "what's next." They gear up to experience renewed productivity and purpose and are more conscious of their health. A Man's Guide to Healthy Aging is an authoritative resource for them, and for older men, as well. In collaboration with a variety of medical experts, the authors provide a comprehensive guide to healthy aging from a man's perspective. Edward H. Thompson, Jr., and Lenard W. Kaye - a medical sociologist and a gerontologist and social worker - offer invaluable information in four parts: "Managing Our Lives" describes the actions men can take to stay healthy. Here is information about how to eat well, reduce stress, and stay active for better overall health; "Mind and Body" considers how physical health and state of mind are connected. It explores sleep, drug and alcohol use, spirituality, and attitudes about appearance-and explains how all of these factors affect mental health; "Bodily Health" examines how body systems function and what changes may occur as men age. It covers the body from head to toe and reviews how to manage chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart conditions; and "Living with Others" shows the importance of interacting with friends and family. Topics include sexual intimacy, friendship, and caregiving, as well as how men can make the best decisions about end-of-life issues for themselves and their loved ones. Refuting the ageist stereotype that men spend their later years "winding down," this book will help men reinvent themselves once, twice, or more-by managing their health, creating new careers, and contributing their skills and experiences to their communities.

Very Comprehensive and Interesting Reading 5 février 2014
Par Pat Stephan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Since those of us who would be interested in such a topic probably think that we already know everything, we may find some content of this book obvious and reinforcement to what we already know. On the other hand, the authors have contributors who are experts in their fields and have seen a broader spectrum of experiences give their best advice which should be useful in a broad range of topics.

One interesting approach in the book is to use bulleted highlights for courses of action or improvements in dealing with various topics and situations.

It will take a while to get through the entire book, but I am picking topics of current interest and look forward to finishing the book in coming weeks.

Everything You Need to Know to Age Well 15 mars 2015
Par Darian Burns - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Johns Hopkins’ A Man’s Guide to Healthy Aging was the first book a got and read after I got out of the hospital last year following my stroke. It seemed to be just where I should start, and I was not disappointed. The book is exhaustive and covers everything one could possibly want to know about how to get healthy as you age. The book almost 600 pages and is arranged into four sections, with a sum of 23 chapters.

The first section is on “managing daily living,” and incorporates wellness. It has chapters on staying active, eating well, healthy aging, stress, and relationships. The second section is about “mind-body connections,” and has chapters on sleep, appearance, spirituality, alcohol and drugs, and holistic medicine. The third section concentrates on the “male body,” with chapters on the heart, memory, diabetes, sexual health, bones, joints and muscles, teeth, eyes, and cancers. The final section is on “relationships,” with four chapters on sexual intimacy, retirement, caregiving, and end-of-life matters. Many of the chapters are co-written with experts on the relevant topics.

With so many health and fitness books out there, the question for potential users of the book is whether it is better than other sources? Here are some reasons why this book is worth your time and money:

1. It is only for men and men’s healthy and aging concerns. There are many books like this targeted to women but very few just for men and none, that I could find, that are as thorough as A Man’s Guide to Healthy Aging.
2. The information in the book is far more comprehensive and useful than what appears in most other books covering health and aging. It even has more than many medical or fitness websites with which I am familiar.
3. The fact that it is published by Johns Hopkins University Press in their Health Book series also may give the reader more reason to trust it. Each chapter is written by an authority in the subject matter covered - such as Medical Doctors, Sociologist, Psychologist, Counselors, Physical Therapist, Nutritionist and many other field professionals.
4. A Mans Guide to Healthy Aging aims to put older men's health in a social and even political context, in a way that helps to enable men to take command of their health. To some degree, it aims to speak directly to men's experience and men's needs in a way that books by other health experts do not.
5. A holistic approach is used all through the book, which is unusual and refreshing for such guides. For example, in the chapter on vision, the writers explain normal changes related to aging, and then their first suggestion is for healthy eating to keep healthy eyes. They also recommend shielding eyes from the UV rays of the sun, and, of course, remind readers that smoking boosts the risk of eye disorders. The section also considers the implications for mental health problems, since men with vision loss are at elevated danger for depression, stress, loneliness and sadness.

A Man's Guide to Healthy Aging incorporates a less traditional approach than we might presume from a mainstream university press that tends to be linked with biomedical strategies. It gives not merely data, which is probably accessible elsewhere, but also a unique method of thinking about the health of aging men. This book does not just duplicate the same information that is accessible in related guides, and it should be beneficial to both men and their families in addressing their health issues.
