As a baby boomer, you've lived through the Cold War, Civil Rights, the sexual revolution, Vietnam, Watergate, disco, punk, new wave and the Internet. Now you're experiencing your biggest challenge yet-middle age. A boomer himself, Dr. Brian Peck offers the most up-to-date information on mid-age medicine, including its diagnostic procedures and approaches to common conditions and treatments. He has collaborated with 12 medical specialists in their respective fields to round out this comprehensive, one-stop resource.
The Baby Boomer Body Book's 33 chapters are divided into "Problems Common to Men and Women," "Women's Issues," "Men's Issues," and "Baby Boomers Preparing for the Future." A compendium of reliable, accessible information, Dr. Peck's book is also filled with dozens of lively case histories of real-life medical problems baby boomers have encountered and how they were solved.
"Dr. Peck has produced a volume for us. It is readable yet comprehensive and informative. Its tone makes you feel like you are in his office, across the consultation desk, getting firsthand advice based on more than twenty years of experience and knowledge. The Baby Boomer Body Book occupies a prominent place in my library."
