I>Having recently turned 50 myself, with more than my fair share of the requisite aches and pains associated with that age, it's ironic that Mark's book should provide me with an inspirational reminder that all of us must continue learning to look after ourselves.'

Did you know that only one third of the ageing process is affected by hereditary and biological factors? This means that the other two thirds depends on you and how you live your life to make it longer and healthier. No matter how old you are-whether you are 40 or 80-Live Stronger Live Longerwill help you enjoy a better lifestyle and live a longer, active life by making you aware of what you eat, how your body works, and how you can make it work better.
The unfortunate truth is that when you reach 40, physical changes occur that affect your joints, flexibility and movement. Live Stronger Live Longershows you that the right exercise can build muscle strength, prevent bone loss, restore flexibility and minimise loss of movement.
Dr Mark Awerbuch uses his professional experience as a rheumatologist and his personal experience as a fitness enthusiast and a baby boomer to motivate you to adopt this healthy, active lifestyle that will give you a new lease of life as you get older. Mark has completed three standard marathons -the last done at 43 - and became a karate Black Belt in Zen Do Kai at 46.
