“If we are going to help make a healthy world it is essential that men become kind and soft and step down from the altar of power. These things were not spoken in medical school maybe because most all the teachers were male, and psychiatry did not address the unhealthy features of the male personality. Thank you, Peter, for showing the possibility for a healthier world, making healthier men.”

Men Over 60: Don’t Quit Now! supplies helpful information for men in their senior years who want to stay active and healthy. To share this type of information with senior men is an admired goal of Dr. Dorsen and myself. I recommend Dr. Dorsen’s sequel to Dr. D’s Handbook as a helpful guide to anyone interested in this age group.”

“I came to this book for the information, but I stayed for the inspiration. There is lots of new information, even for an experienced physician. But more importantly, this book offers the inspiration to implement a healthy lifestyle as we pass from our 60s and beyond.”

    A great info source for us guys in the final decades of our lives. But, as Dr. Dorsen well indicates, "final" doesn't mean "the end". Still vigorous at 78, Dr. Dorsen is living proof that aging doesn't mean retreating into an amoebic existence. He shares the tips, tricks and basic methodology that has kept him going as well as warns us about potential pitfalls. This book is a worthy follow-up to his terrific "Dr. D’s Handbook for Men over 40: A Guide to Health, Fitness, Living, and Loving in the Prime of Life". NOTE: A 2022 edition was published before it was fully proofed. Insist on the 2023 edition.
