EDDISON / GARDENING FOR A LIFETIME: HOW TO GARDEN WISER
Paperback: 208 pages
Publisher: Timber Press (April 13, 2011)

Although the garden may beckon as strongly as ever, the tasks involved—pulling weeds, pushing wheelbarrows, digging holes, moving heavy pots—become increasingly difficult, or even impossible, with advancing age. But the idea of giving it up is unthinkable for most gardeners. So what’s the alternative?

In Gardening for a Lifetime, now in paperback, Sydney Eddison draws on her own forty years of gardening to provide a practical and encouraging roadmap for scaling back while keeping up with the gardening activities that each gardener loves most. Like replacing demanding plants like delphiniums with sturdy, relatively carefree perennials like sedums, rudbeckias, and daylilies. Or taking the leap and hiring help—another pair of hands, even for a few hours a week, goes a long way toward getting a big job done. Or maybe it makes sense to get rid of high-maintenance trees, shrubs, or perennials.

The paperback edition features a new chapter in which Sydney’s struggles with hip and back problems force her to walk the walk. As a friend of hers says, "Last summer you wrote the book. Now, I'm happy to see that you've read it." Gentle, personable, and practical, Gardening for a Lifetime will be welcomed by all gardeners looking to transform gardening from a list of daunting chores into the rewarding, joy-filled activity it was meant to be.

MILLER / DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY IN LATER LIFE
Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: The Johns Hopkins University Press (August 15, 2012)

Physical problems and emotional stresses, such as bereavement, health conditions, pain, concerns about the future, side effects of medications, and the accumulated effects of lifestyle choices, may lead to depression or anxiety in older people. However, as Drs. Mark D. Miller and Charles F. Reynolds III know, these mental disorders are not a natural or an inevitable part of aging. In Depression and Anxiety in Later Life, these psychiatrists show how depression and anxiety can be avoided or minimized by adapting to changing circumstances while controlling risk factors and getting help when it's needed.

MONAGHAN / WHEN A LOVED ONE FALLS ILL
Paperback: 252 pages
Publisher: Workman Publishing Company (April 28, 2011)

The much-needed book for anyone with a loved one facing a serious illness. It is the book that’s a bible for how to make the potentially life-or-death decisions that every medical advocate, and every patient, must grapple with—especially now, as health care becomes ever more complicated. It is the practical blueprint for how to be a successful medical advocate.

When Gerri Monaghan’s husband, Brian, then a fifty-nine-year-old lawyer at the top of his game, got the news that all of us dread—a diagnosis of brain tumors caused by Stage IV melanoma with a prognosis of three to six months to live—she knew that this was a challenge the two of them would fight together. Brian brought his enormous courage, attitude, and reserves of humor, and Gerri, with dogged determination, stood up again and again for what they needed—tirelessly researching options, reaching out to friends, family, and anyone who could help, resisting the status quo, and always thinking in terms of “we.”

VICKERY / LIVE YOUNG, THINK YOUNG, BE YOUR:....AT ANY AGE
Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Bull Publishing Company (September 26, 2012)

While there are plenty of books offering advice about how to age, none takes the crucial step back to challenge how people think about aging—until now. The Aging Syndrome, the core idea in this book, explains the aging process by using three pillars: intrinsic aging, the aging process that no one understands; disuse, both physical and mental; and chronic disease processes, which begin in childhood or sometimes in the womb. Using practical steps and plain language, this volume is the only guide needed for developing a plan for growing older. By presenting a better way to think about aging, it reveals what everyone can do to live a longer life.
