The Golden Years Review

I recently read a great book by Christopher Bogosh called "The Golden Years: Healthy Aging and the Older Adult". Now you might be wondering why I wanted to read this book, considering I am years away from being considered part of the "golden years" age group. But I am so glad I read this book. This is the second book I have read by Bogosh and he is so intelligent and really knows what he is talking about.

The book covers so many bases. In the section on aging, he talks about each system of the body and how it is affected by the aging process. In the healthy living section, he talks of vaccines, exercise, sleep, dental care, and many other facets of being healthy. He has a whole section on preventive healthcare which talks a lot about the Affordable Care Act, so it is very relevant. He even has an entire section on healthcare management which speaks a lot about the end of life and the decisions that individuals and families both have to make. And he ties in every single aspect to scripture.

There are so many things to think about with the aging process. Many of these were things that had never crossed my mind because of my age. But I do have grandparents in this stage of life, and in a couple more decades my parents will be in this stage of life. It is better to know what to expect than to be surprised.

I highly, highly recommend for people to read this book.

Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews and Good Samaritan Books for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
