When first published in 1977 this book caused a storm, for Dr Vernon Coleman suggested that most medical research should be stopped. And he explained why in precise detail. The book was well received by reviewers. For example, the Daily Express said: "Required reading for any Minister of Health" and Nursing Times said "I hope this book becomes a bestseller among doctors, nurses...and the wider public who, after all, have to pay for the research." The Guardian said: "If you believe Dr Vernon Coleman the main beneficiaries of the hundred million pounds worth of medical research done in this country (the UK) each year are certainly not the patients."

A practical guidebook designed to show the over 60s how to look after themselves in an increasingly ageist world. Contains many proven medical facts which some readers may find uncomfortable (e.g. eating meat causes cancer though you are never too old to cut down meat consumption). There is bound to be someone somewhere who smokes 100 a day, eats raw steak three times a week, never exercises, is obese and lives to be 100. But most people who do these things need hospital care and die early. Learn how to retain your freedom, dignity, independence and sense of humour. Stay young in spirit, start again at 65 (or older) and live a bonus life. Replace the depressing, pessimistic certainties of old age with the hope and confidence-drenched ambition usually associated with the young. Dr Vernon Coleman, a qualified doctor, is the author of over 100 books which have sold over two million hardback and paperback copies in the UK, been translated into 25 language and sold around the world.

Over 30 years ago, in 1978, Dr Vernon Coleman wrote the first popular book on stress. Years later (in 1991) he realised that much of the stress to which we are exposed is part of our modern society - and cannot be managed with the usual stress control techniques. He invented the phrase 'toxic stress' to define this type of stress. He wrote 'Toxic Stress' to explain just how and why 'toxic stress' makes us ill and how it is different to ordinary stress. Toxic stress causes or exacerbates 90 per cent of all illness. This revised and updated edition shows how you can deal with it.
Sunday Times bestselling author, Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA has written over 100 books which have sold over two million hardback and paperback copies in the UK alone - and have been translated into 25 languages and sold all over the world.
