Présentation de l'éditeur

With a baby boomer turning sixty every ten seconds, we are rapidly becoming an aging society. But cutting edge research on the connection between age and disease shows us that many of the preconceptions we had about how to grow old need a second look. This groundbreaking book is full of take-away prescriptive advice which the nearly seventy-five million boomers in this nation will value. Top gerontologist and Stanford medical school professor Dr. Walter Bortz and co-author Randall Stickrod draw on new science and a thirty-year longitudinal study of centenarians to show that:

• Genetics plays a smaller role in aging than previously thought

• Senility, dementia, and other diseases of the elderly, are largely preventable and not an inevitable consequence of aging

• Engagement, through sexual relationships, social interaction, and professional activity, is a key factor in long, healthy lives

• Physical fitness can recover at least 30 years of aging

Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, The Roadmap to 100 gives you the power to control your own destiny and live well beyond 100.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What? Why? When? How? How Much? 14 avril 2010
Par Jan Koncewicz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Interesting book. Most of us want to live long but how to attain it? We all know the basics -- Don't smoke, don't drink too much alcohol, eat your fruits and vegetables, do not each junk food, exercise, etc. We are used to being told what to do or what not to do, but we are often not told the reasons for that. Why should we or shouldn't we do something? How much we should eat or exercise? Why should we lift weights if we have no ambition for a great looking body? Not only "what" but also "why", "how" and "how much" should we do a particular thing to be as healthy as possible? Should we take vitamins and supplements? Is there anything that we should definitely start or stop doing now or in the future to extend our lives? Some doctors might help us with these questions but most of them are too preoccupied treating the sick and have not time or the will for the prevention health maintenance...

Where can we turn to find the answers? Many of them you will find in this book. For some others you might have to search further. As the author states: "the mission of this book is to present the case for living to 100 or more and living well all the while". Longevity is not an isolated phenomenon any more. It is a direct consequence of health maintenance. The author of another book titled "Body Maintenance Handbook" predicts that we have the potential to live up to 150 years. All we need is to attain enough knowledge about the way our body functions to be capable of eliminating the causes of our illnesses and to prolong our lives. Get these books and study how to do that all. Live long and healthy!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Roadmap to the same old thing 5 juin 2010
Par Steven Mason - Publié sur Amazon.com
I listened to Dr. Bortz give a lecture about this book, and I borrowed it from the library to examine it further. There is nothing new in it, and it certainly doesn't "live up" to its title, so to speak. By that I mean that Dr. Bortz provides absolutely no evidence that if you follow his "roadmap" you can expect to live a healthy life for a century.

The roadmap points the way to health in five key areas. These areas are common sense to any thinking person, of which you are already familiar even if you don't practice them. The five areas are physical exercise (a heavily emphasized priority), mental exercise, nutrition, social engagement, and sex. If any of this sounds new to anyone, I'd like to ask where you've been for the past fifty years.

I won't object if Dr. Bortz makes the claim that such efforts will make us healthier and life more enjoyable, but what is the point of claiming that it is a roadmap to 100, besides wishful thinking and a catchy title? And what does Dr. Bortz offer in this book that hasn't already been offered by hundreds of other books over the past half century? In fact, I say that Roadmap to 100 is worse than nothing new. I say that it does more harm than good.

Take the section on exercise. Dr. Bortz is a running fiend. He devotes many pages to running because "vigorous aerobic exercise" is the most important part of his roadmap and because running is a "natural" exercise, the kind that our paleolithic ancestors used to do (they used to carry heavy game back to camp, too, which is why he also recommends lifting weights). The problem is, Dr. Bortz can't seem to make up his mind on how much running is required for us to live to 100. He seems to say that thirty minutes three times a week is good, but then he will talk passionately of marathon running. He admits that he is a "terrible, slow, awkward runner" who feels like he is wearing "army boots." He says that he takes between 7 and 8 hours to complete a marathon. In one story meant to be "inspiring," he recounted the time he was suffering from extreme cramps two miles short of finishing a marathon, so painful that he could barely walk, let alone run. With the aid of two others, he finished those last two miles. Am I the only one who finds this to be more about obsession and compulsion than health? Is this the kind of doctor I want to take advice from? Does living to 100 require that we engage in hours of exercises that are chronically painful rather than mostly enjoyable? If Dr. Bortz has the evidence for this, he doesn't show it. And by the way, if Dr. Bortz takes 7 hours to complete a marathon, that averages out to under 4 miles per hour, which is a comfortable walking speed. He is 80-years-old, so I'm not taking anything away from his physical accomplishments, but still, this doesn't really qualify as "running" or even jogging, even if it does feel like he's wearing army boots. Dr. Bortz devotes a sentence or two to "worthy alternative exercises" like stationary bicycling and swimming, but only in the context of injuries that preclude running. The bottom line is this: Running may be a healthful, enjoyable activity for many people, but even people who run regularly are not guaranteed to live to 100, or 90, or even 80. And while Dr. Bortz talks of running "addiction" as a good thing, there is such a thing as an unhealthy addiction/obsession/compulsion to running and exercise. As far as I'm concerned, there is only one good reason for people to run marathons, and that is if they enjoy it.

Dr. Bortz's recommendations on weight lifting are rather pedestrian: The ideal lifting weight is what you can do 8 to 10 reps with. His recommendations on nutrition are likewise pedestrian. You know the drill: mostly whole grains, beans, vegetables, with some fruit, soy, and fish, and a little meat, eggs, and dairy. Don't eat meals to the point of "fullness"; rather, stop about 20% short of fullness.

Do I really have to say anything about the three remaining areas: mental exercise, social engagement, and sex? Being intellectually active, having a close family and good friends, and enjoying sex with a nice partner may not make you live to 100, but they will make what years you have worth living. :-)

Overall, I give Roadmap to 100 a poor rating, because it truly has nothing new to say, it doesn't even try to substantiate its lofty title, and it even contains some unhealthy guidelines. I have not read Dr. Bortz's other book, Dare to be 100, and so I can't say if it is any better.

If anyone who has read this book finds fault with my review, I welcome comments and discussion. If anyone can show that my opinion contains factual errors, I will gladly edit my review. I do not enjoy writing a negative review for this book. I respect Dr. Bortz and I know that he means well, and I'm sure that he has helped many people in his long career. I hope he makes it to 100, and I hope that someday he can finally take off his army boots. :-)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Weak information on nutrition 17 mai 2011
Par John T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Because the author is a gerontologist and faculty member at the Stanford Medical School, I hoped to get some new insights into staying healthy in old age from this book. While the book will be useful for those have done little reading in this area, I learned very little from it. On page 84 he gives his foundations for successful aging: lean muscle mass, VO2 max, nutrition, sex, a healthy brain, engagement, movement. Consistent with this, a large part of the book deals with various studies that show the benefits of exercise. His chapter on nutrition is very general and gives no specific recommendations. It also contains errors, such as stating that the long-lived residents of Sardinia eat a diet rich in olive oil and fish. In fact they are shepherds living inland and do not grow olives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Roadmap to 100: The Breakthrough Science of Living a Long and Healthy Life 19 octobre 2011

I read this book, better yet studied this book, almost a year ago when doing research for my own fitness and health book, Forever Fit and Fabulous: A Guide to Health and Vigor--Even at 70 and Beyond. Dr. Bortz is one of those rare longevity experts who practices what he preaches. He is 80-years-old, has been running marathons for 40 years, and ran the last one at age 80!
I am 70-years-young myself, so I appreciate his efforts at 80. My goal is to be as capable as he is when I'm his age. Thank you, Dr. Bortz. YOu inspired me to get back to jogging and to increase my weight loads.

Clear, sequential,funny and to the point, Not an armchair author, but a real MD
who could easily sit in his big house on the hill...

Instead, he continues to share his wealth of practical information.

There is no real dictation of a new lifestyle, but simply a ' here is what may happen if you
try a few changes and here is what may happen if you don't.' It;s up to you ...
