From the Author: “This book describes my attempts to stay active while aging (I’m now nearing 66), despite two premature hip replacements and a heart valve replacement due to a genetic defect.

Customer Review: “I have an autoimmune arthritis. When I move I creak and I am only in my early 40’s. I have sat around for 5 years because no matter what exercise I did I found it very painful.
