Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 157071715X, Paperback)

As we age, our bodies present us with new aches, pains, and surprises. In this lively book, author Brian Peck, M.D. explains typical baby-boomer maladies in simple language, describing diagnosis, anatomy, treatment strategies, medications, and helpful exercises, along with case studies and illustrations. Snappy titles such as "My Dogs Are Barkin'" (foot problems), "Did Someone Turn Up the Heat?" (menopause), "You're Going to Put a What up My Where?!" (common medical tests), and "Oh My God! I'm Beginning to Look like My Mother!" (aging skin) make you want to read about the problems you don't have. Peck also discusses other health issues of interest to boomers, such as supplements, exercise, and body image. Most topics are accompanied by information on additional resources, including Web sites--useful because one chapter or part of a chapter on your specific condition cannot be comprehensive.

Helping people through life's phases is "the doctor's all-consuming task," says Peck, medical director of the Arthritis Center of Connecticut and assistant clinical professor of Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine. He sees the physician's responsibility as teaching people "what they should be doing." Indeed, in this book he educates and arms the reader with strategies for maintaining health. Nine additional medical specialists also contributed information. --Joan Price
