Sod Sixty! stamps all over ageist stereotypes and empowers us to live a healthy and fulfilling life into our eighties, nineties and beyond. Sir Muir Gray, one of the UK's most senior medical figures, brings us this highly practical and hugely entertaining read. Part exercise book and part motivational self-help guide Muir shows us that rather than declining into old age, we can positively bound through it!
Making sensible choices about exercise, keeping an active mind and taking steps to combat preventable diseases are the keys to success.
Written in an accessible, humorous style yet packed full of scientific evidence, Muir guides us through how to get fitter and stay healthy in body and mind. He includes practical advice on exercising sensibly, preventing or managing the common health problems of later life and navigating the healthcare system.
This important book has the potential to change life in old age from the inside out. A must-read for anyone who feels that youth's wasted on the young.
