not what the title led me to expect
I must say, I'm rather disappointed.
What I expected: Lots and lots of practical advice.
What I got: Half(!) the book (4 hrs.) was dedicated to the defense of aging as a natural phenomenon that should not be combatted. Including the description of cheese and wine and stuff as positive examples of the aging process. Pleeeeaaaase!! I agree whole-heartedly, but that's hardly what I bought the book for. Maybe that is necessary for an US target audience, I wouldn't know. But it simply is not what the title and the blurb led me to expect.
Finally, in the last third, Weil got around to mentioning practical matters. So out of over 8 hours, I got about 3 hours' worth of what the title led me to expect...
If you think aging is something to be avoided, this book might be for you. For practical tips and advice on aging, forget it.
