I picked up your book, Why Grow Old,” over the weekend and could not put it down as I am totally of the belief that we can age without growing old. I have been practicing ant-aging for many years. I find it fascinating to learn about and read all that I can to stay up on the latest findings. I found your book very enlightening and comprehensive. It covers all areas and in great detail. This an invaluable tool for anyone on the path to slowing down the aging process and getting and staying healthy. I found it easy to read and understandable, I finished it today. Thank you so much for taking the time and energy you invested in this magnificent book.


Educational, informative and as Dr. Finger says, “Good health is beautiful.” A must read for everyone concerned with their health and well being.

It is so informative and interesting. I especially enjoyed reading about how to eat right and to execise and how to protect yourself from sun damage and how to take care of your skin. It is always important to get a reminder of how to do things right. We may know how, but we become lazy or forget. There is so much information in the book that you can’t remember it all, but it is a great book to keep coming back to for looking things up. I know I will.

Why Grow Old — The Antiaging Bible is a must read for anyone looking to understand their maturing bodies as well as to embrace gracefully the undeniable aging process. Dr. Ronald Finger has devoted decades of his practice to sharing practical ways to increase longevity internally as well as physical. As a Professional Librarian, Self-Help books are always some of my favorites to include in a collection, and naturally I stumbled across this book in a local health food store. The Feel Good Bible is easy to read, is full of technical and medical information that is easy to absorb (unlike the China Study), and gives you a practical shopping list of vitamins and food that can be incorporated into anyone’s diet. You can tell from reading this that Dr. Finger’s goal is to educate his readers how to be informed and responsible users of plastic surgery as well as the aging process. I loved this book so much I shared it with my fellow triathletes in a local gym—and the response to his book was overwhelmingly positive! AWESOME! Thank you, Dr. Finger for sharing this 40 something how to grow old gracefully.

Why Grow Old? The Antiaging Bible Feel Good, Look Good Bible is a great reference manual to have on my shelf, just wish I had discovered it in my 30’s (now I am 52)~ Following the appendix and sharing with my 20 something year old children~

Why Grow Old — The Antiaging Bible by Dr. E. Ronald Finger, is fascinating to me as a woman who always “thinks” of plastic surgery but is fearful. His gentle explanation of procedures, takes away the misconceptions, etc. and provides me with practical information that I can “arm” myself with before any procedure is considered. Thank you!
