Mental Fitness for Life

This timely book, written by experts in gerontology and based on recent, solid research debunks the myth that slipping into one's dotage is inevitable for baby boomers. An active, productive mind is as important as physical health and a critical key to aging well. Authors Sandra Cusack and Wendy Thompson draw on studies from Harvard, Berkeley, UCLA, and elsewhere to show how to keep an alert mind throughout life. The book explores the seven keys to mental fitness: the importance of goal setting, replacing old beliefs with " power thinking, " thinking creatively and acting in radically different ways, developing a positive mental attitude, memory and learning skills, and speaking one's mind. These practices combined create a program and strategy that leads to mental fitness for life.
