There is no "magic bullet" for optimal aging - which, by the way, has nothing to do with wrinkle-free skin or a good-to-go libido as you sail into your 90s, and everything to do with maintaining your ability to function and remain autonomous, independent, mobile, and cognitively sound until then. At 55 or 75 or 95, your body is at the physical stage your lifestyle habits and the mileage you've put on them have gotten them to. But, you can, at any age revive the process of "Aging Well." This book isn't about the mechanical devices that you can install to make you fell "younger," or about the exterior re-sculpting you can do to look younger. The purpose of this book is to show you that aging, per se, is not the cause of many age-related conditions: For instance, you can get gray hair anytime, it's just more likely that you will at 50 than at 25. The same is true for bone and joint problems, wrinkles, and a host of other conditions that tend to come with advancing years.

He wrote liner notes for dozens of releases, and his work appeared in virtually every music magazine published during his time, including "Downbeat", "Crawdaddy", "Guitar""World", and "Musician". Palmer died in 1997.
