Treat Me, Not My Age: A Doctor's Guide to Getting the Best Care as You or a Loved One Gets Older Treat Me, Not My Age: A Doctor's Guide to Getting the Best Care as You or a Loved One Gets Older

by Mark Lachs, MD

Book Reviews

"Mark Lachs starts the conversation that most of us are taught not to talk about: What do we do when we, or someone close to us, become older? So many of the resources about this subject are bewilderingly specialized and often confusing, but Dr. Lachs brings all the various elements together, offering guidance and suggestions about all aspects of health and aging. What I loved about this book is how much it feels as if you're having a conversation with a trusted friends who is also incredibly knowledgeable about what to do when advancing years are upon you. Treat Me, Not My Age bridges the gap between confusion and clarity about this inevitable part of our lives. I only wish he'd written it sooner!"
--Nell Newman, president and cofounder, Newman's Own Organic

"Finally, one of the most highly regarded experts in our field helps the reader make sense of the increasingly complex health-care landscape for boomers and beyond. Most books about aging these days are about exactly the opposite: never getting old. Lachs assumes the reader is much smarter than that, and as a doctor and a scientist gives highly prescriptive advice on how to navigate broken and confusing systems that impact how we age."
--Robert N. Butler, founding director, National Institute on Aging; president, International Longevity Center

"Getting older is sometimes not for the faint of heart! Finally, an upbeat yet responsible book about aging from a brilliant gerontologist and scientist. And it's a fun and well-written book to boot!"
--William Goldman, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President's Men
