How We Age: A Doctor's Journey into the Heart of Growing Old
Marc E. Agronin, MD
(AAGP Member author)

As Marc Agronin first learned from ninety-eight-year-old Esther and, later, from countless others, the true scales of aging aren't one-sided-you can't list the problems without also tallying the hopes and promises. Drawing on moving personal experiences and in-depth interviews with pioneers in the field, Agronin conjures a spellbinding look at what aging means today-how our bodies and brains age, and the very way we understand aging.
