How to Train for Aging by Kevin Thomas Morgan [4/10]

I was drawn to “How to Train for Aging: The Ultimate Endurance Sport” by its relevance at my time of life, but in spite of good intentions, Kevin Thomas Morgan flails at his topic without persuading. A veterinarian (that is, with some rationality) who has had heart problems, he exhorts, preaches the concept of entropy, and in general encourages systematic physical activity (he does Ironman competitions) as the antidote to aging’s retrogressions. That much I knew from the book’s title, and the concept appeals to me, but I expected sagacity and rewarding tales from the front line. Instead the book offers a few relevant insights but exaggeratedly limps from cover to cover.
