As an eldercare expert, nurse and advocate I found David Bernstein's book to be heartfelt and refreshing. Geriatrics isn't prestigious in medicine as he points out, but his dedication and empathetic approach is genuine and admirable.

If we could only clone Dr. Bernstein for our current and future need for caring and committed geriatric specialists we'd have a lot less concern for our aging future. These are the kind of books that should be required reading in med school to remind and even engage As an eldercare expert, nurse and advocate I found David Bernstein's book to be heartfelt and refreshing.

If we could only clone Dr. Bernstein for our current and future need for caring and committed geriatric specialists we'd have a lot less concern for our aging future. These are the kind of books that should be required reading in med school to remind and even engage up and coming physicians to the very satisfying and much needed area of geriatric medicine so they don't succumb to the pressure to go towards what is perceived as "prestigious."

The author's self reflection and inclusion of family stories remind us of the humanness of those who can hand out some pretty tough diagnosis' and prognosis'.

I have a lot of respect for physicians that see all sides of treatment and know when forgoing treatment will allow a better quality of life. Those that embrace the hospice philosophy are more concerned about their patients and their quality of life than the egos of curing all at all costs.
Dr. Bernstein's philosophy of living a long satisfying life are right on target from what I have experienced in over 3 decades of geriatric care.

Hope he will be one to put off retirement to continue providing the rare and excellent care of geriatric patients. ...more

Bernstein offers some principles for healthy living during late midlife and late life. But more compelling are his anecdotes from his medical practice as a geriatrician in Clearwater, Florida. Over 25 plus years, Bernstein worked with people in the second half of life on managing their health, their environment and their attitude. He offers up more than a dozen "case studies," including a handful of his own relatives.

On the one hand, there are some clear directives that correlate with good health: diet, exercise, smoking cessation and a positive mental attitude. On the other hand, everyone ages and everyone dies. And it's not always possible to predict and control that process.

I enjoyed reading the narratives of several interesting patients. Bernstein writes with great warmth while also explaining some common age-related ailments. I felt as though I had spent an evening chatting with him about his area of expertise and how I can benefit from his decades of experience. ...more

I am a young adult, but my parents are aging. A friend recommended Dr. Bernsteins book to help me better understand some of the issues my parents will face as they age. It was an excellent read. It was easy to understand - and with bite size portions that enable me to read just short segments at a time and pick up where I left off. Dr. Bernsteins voice was clearly heard throughout the book; his stories were entertaining and enlightening. I highly recommend this book!
