Whether or not you believe that 50 is the new 40 (or some other coming-of-age wisdom), there’s no tiptoeing around the fact that everyone gets older. That’s why Cliffside Park resident Chrys Chyssanthou, M.D., shares his knowledge about staying young in his bookHow to Keep Young: A Prescription for Ageless Aging.

The 106-page hardcover offers readers advice on preventing, delaying and even reversing the effects of aging. Does it work? It did for the 91-year-old Chyssanthou, whose personal experiences, research and observations are peppered throughout the book.

“[The book] emphasizes the pivotal factor of self-perception, mind-set and certain behavioral activities,” he says. “The gloomy perception of old age is a misconception—people can be active, productive, vibrant and happy in their golden years.”
