At the heart of [this book] is [the author's] belief that although aging is an irreversible process, there are myriad things we can do to keep our minds and bodies in good working order through all phases of life. To that end, he draws on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging) as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity - diet, activity, and attitude - that he has gathered firsthand from cultures around the world.-Dust jacket.

I really liked this book for an intro to aging for public health, but it does require some supplemental readings. Focuses more on the context of individual health, but also has a good discussion of how this topic is seen within our society.
