Aging is a natural and progressive process which none of us can escape. Normally, we notice and adapt to the process. Usually, being a progressive process, we don't need anyone’s help and we can learn for ourselves how to age well. However, this is not always the case, there are some people who age prematurely and lose their functions very quickly. This is known as pathological aging. In this book that author suggests a series of recommendations that will help to prevent pathological aging.

 Politicians often remind us that aging causes an enormous drain on health resources; however, it is not aging in general but pathological aging which really uses up all these resources. For this reason, it is important to prevent pathological aging and, over all, be aware of the factors that can help us avoid it through analysis and correction.
