Overview | Contents

Unlocking the secrets of positive aging.

Few prejudices in Western society are more powerful than those concerning aging. Until recently, we have assumed that the story of aging is one of loss and decline. But there’s an entirely different truth. Yes, you can teach an old dog—or even a sort-of-old dog—new tricks.

Is there a secret to staying young? It turns out that there are many, and they all begin with nurturing our existing relationships to foster brain health, keeping us happier and healthier.

As readers of this book will learn, wisdom, enhanced social relationships, greater adaptation and flexibility (mental, if not physical!)—all these things can be attained as we grow older. Filled with both practical and thought-provoking suggestions, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to age in style.

Endorsements & Reviews

“[Cozolino] cites the need for meaningful relationships with the young, face-to-face contacts with others, a positive attitude, and worthwhile occupations. This reassuring book would be an inspiration to seniors as well as their families and caregivers.” — Booklist

“Dr. Cozolino has written a very informative and helpful book. It is written in a style that is readable and understandable. . . . There are many who would find this book inspirational and educational.” — Psych Central

“This book gets as close as possible to a prescription for maintaining a healthy brain. ‘Use it or lose it’ is the mantra of neuroscience, and so too this book directs us to search for physical and mental challenges while fostering our social connectedness, all of which maximize our brain’s activity.” — John Ratey, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain

“Louis Cozolino addresses human development at all levels of biological and psychological organization – the brain, the mind, the social, the evolutionary – and masterfully weaves them into an interconnected whole.  With its emphasis on wisdom, this book fits perfectly with the integration of traditional and modern practices that will be necessary for our survival and adaption in the decades and centuries to come. Wise, compassionate, socially embedded, and evolutionarily adaptive, Timeless is essential reading for all of us, young and old.” — Jonathan D. Salk, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine
