The chapters I found most useful were those that were excellent expositions of areas I wanted to learn more about--genetics, the immune system, and the policy implications of cholesterol lowering in elderly people, as well as handy reviews of ongoing research programs which conveniently provides a historical and an integrated view of ongoing longitudinal studies in context....In sum, this is an excellent introduction to a wide range of major research programs that have and will continue to make contributions to our understanding of behavioral medicine and aging.

Book Description
A dramatic shift in the average age of the U.S. population and the increasing number of elderly Americans has introduced new and challenging healthcare dilemmas. This book addresses these issues with contributed chapters by the leading authorities in the field of behavioral medicine. It deals with health and healthcare needs of the elderly by considering basic changes that result from aging and some of the more specific problems that accompany it.

Content highlights include a review of the basic tenets of genetics and molecular biology including some of the methods of looking at heritable differences in health and well-being. Quality of life concerns are addressed, including the differences between men and women, as well as other gender issues. Several chapters deal with the effects of aging on immunity. The latter part of the book emphasizes the psychosocial implications of aging on cardiovascular disease. Chronic illness among the elderly is also addressed.
