            ** Pre-order the most important book you'll ever read about the second half of your life now. ** We are all apprentice old people. More and more of us are living to a very great age. But how do we give those we love, and eventually ourselves, a chance to be older as happily and h...ealthily as we possibly can? Dr Lucy's book looks at answers, to questions big and small, and helps us understand that long life is something to be celebrated and embraced. Most situations, she tells us, are solvable. Is it normal to find you're falling out of love with your partner of many years, who is disappearing into dementia? * When does 'fiercely independent' turn into 'badly behaved'? * How do you navigate the near impossible discussions around resuscitation, intensity of treatments, power of attorney? * How do you get doctors to listen? * Should your mother be taking seven different medicines? * Are we all doomed to an incontinent future? * Should Dad be driving, and if not, who can stop him? * What does a good care home look like? This practical book, full of warmth, humour, philosophy, joy and real-life stories, is by a doctor who has worked her entire career as a geriatrician, caring for people who have complicated problems and who need answers to the delicate questions that arise as we get older. In the end, it comes down to finding a way to talk about it all with the people we love as well as the professionals. Only then, perhaps, can we make a better life for the older people in our families and communities and, ultimately, for ourselves.

            Many people find the road to having a family is not the smooth one they always expected. Whether there is an unforeseen physical problem, the lack of a suitable partner, or no problem that can be diagnosed, many people wind up seeking help. Pamphlets and brochures are handed out,... but there is also a whole world of emotions and decisions to be worked through by all those involved, and this book explores that aspect of this complex process. From coming to terms with not being able to provide your partner with a child that belongs to just the two of you, or cultural resistance to the idea of IVF or donors, to the growing numbers of single women and same-sex couples who wish to become parents every bit as much as heterosexual couples, this book looks into the range of options and emotions to be thought about, with the long-term good of the hoped-for child always at front of mind. The author, who went through her own infertility trauma, later worked as a counsellor at a fertility clinic for almost 20 years, and has talked to many people in many different circumstances, shares a wide range of experiences in these pages. There are case studies throughout, and each chapter ends with two practical bullet lists- Things to Think About; and Things That Might Help.

            Ageing is the biggest cause of disease in our society. Cancer, heart disease, dementia, flu: the risk of all increase staggeringly rapidly as we near the end of life. What if we could slow down the process - or even stop it? The End of Ageing introduces us to the cutting-edge res...earch that is paving the way for a revolution in medicine. We currently focus on treating individual diseases as we grow older, but there might soon be a way of treating the ailment that underpins them all: the ageing process itself. Computational biologist Andrew Steele explains what is happening as we age, and how understanding its scientific implications could lead to the greatest discovery in the history of medicine - one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars, and transform the human condition.
