Learn How to Age Well and Feel Great

The Book


I’ve spent my entire life thinking about, researching, studying, and putting into practice what is the best path to living our best life in the here and now, while improving our chances of going the distance and ultimately dying happy and healthy. And | finally sat down and wrote the book that covers it all.



“This is the book you need if you are reaching a certain "mature" age - all the information you need to feel great as you age is here. I've always felt I was healthy because I have no chronic diseases, don't take any meds, and get a good report at the doctor each year. But as we age that is not enough, we need to work harder to keep our bodies strong and healthy. Al has done extensive research and it is laid out well to find the information you need. I'll be leaving this book right at my bedside table where I can access it easily!”

- Laura A. Riley

“Al Lyman has managed the impossible. He has interpreted the research and scientific studies and added personal anecdotes and common sense, and has come up with the answer to the question on everyone’s mind….How do I Age Well and Feel Great? The book is well-written in a conversational style and offers an eye-opening look at how most of us live our lives. I guarantee you will find something to relate to on many levels. But most importantly, you will learn what you can do to Age Well and Feel Great!”

- Terry Williams

“For thousands of years, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners have been giving their patients advise about movement, meditation, diet and mental outlook so that they may live in a healthier state throughout their life to the greatest extent possible. For those who find those constructs or the practices of New Age/Holistic Medicine practitioners a little off-putting, this is the perfect book to explain many of those same concepts in the language of Western Medicine and sports/fitness science.”

- Randall S. Sutin

“When I heard about the book I knew it was a great idea. When I read about the book I knew I had to have it. When I started looking thru it and identifying areas I wanted to know more about, I knew it would be a great Christmas gift for people I care about. It's enormous and heavy (literally) and for good reason. What fun to flip through it, stop at a page and begin reading. Al Lyman really knows how to share what he knows and what he has learned in such a warm, sometimes funny, way. And he is also so knowledgeable and generous with his advice. Thank you, Al Lyman, for saving my life.”

- Joan Tramontano

“Simple New Year’s Resolution: get this incredibly useful book by @the_al_lyman. It is the owner’s manual for your body that you never received but should have. While it talks about the causes of aging and how to age well, it is NOT only for “old folks.” Everyone is aging. Anyone will benefit by adopting the recommendations in this book at any age. There are sections on food, movement, strength and cardio - the keys to health. Pharma products and quick fix supplements or gadgets are the opposite. The style of the book is accessible, friendly, and not dogmatic.”

- Todd Kenyon, PhD

“Age Well and Feel Great” is an exciting and inspirational read, about taking charge of your life and not letting the rest of your life “just happen” to you. This book has SO MUCH INFORMATION about all of the topics you may or may not have wondered about, in regard to living your life to the fullest while also living as long as you can. It is writing in layman’s terms, which allowed me to devour the content, but I also want to keep it around as a reference that I can turn to time and time again. If you care about your health, read this book and get going, making one small change at a time, toward a future with a better mindset and better health overall.”

- Susan Debronsky

“This is an encyclopedic book that covers the topics of health and aging at just about every conceivable level - from the molecular to the philosophical. It is written in an entertaining and optimistic style with helpful graphics and quotes throughout that nicely illustrate the concepts the author is describing. It covers every aspect of health and aging that I can think of and does so from an unbiased perspective that is the result of a lot of research and thought by the author over a lot of years. Importantly, it does not try to hide the fact that there is randomness in life and that genetics and luck certainly play some role in individual outcomes.”

- George J. Paganis
