4.0 out of 5 stars Thorough but easy to read, November 27, 2011
This review is from: Is This Normal?: The Essential Guide to Middle Age and Beyond (Hardcover)
This is a good, solid overview of the changes that the human body goes through as it ages. Written by an internist who is the chief medical expert for the Discovery channel, it presents in clear terms and plain language both what is normal for the aging body and what is not.

Dr. Whyte explains how the different body systems work, what happens as they get older, and what we can do about it. He covers all the body systems: the skin and hair, the digestive system, metabolism, eye problems, memory, hearing, pain, sex and mental health. There questionnaires to help you determine if you have a problem or not. Sidebars provide case histories as examples.

If you know a lot about the human body- say, you live on the Web MD site- you might not get that much from this book. The average reader, however, will get a huge insight into how the human body works and how it ages.
