It Has Nothing To Do With Age provides self-help principles. The inspirational stories give concrete illustrations of overcoming many of life's challenges. Difficulties pertaining to depression, grief, divorce, and death are presented and worked through by the participants. Physical impairments, injuries, overcoming issues with weight, alcohol, and nicotine are also dealt with and resolved by the athletes.

This book provides a model on how to overcome some of the difficulties that confront all of us . Further, this read sheds a beacon of light on preventive measures for good physical and mental health. Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

I suggest that proper exercise can be used as a preventive measure for psychological, cognitive, and physical health as well. Follow my prescription and lead a better, more fulfilling, and healthier life.

It Has Nothing To Do with Age is a read about transformation, health, fitness, taking control of your life, and discovering passion. Our contemporary American culture has an uncomplimentary view that middle-age people are overweight, heavily medicated, and sedentary with their electronic lifestyle.  This book defies and challenges this negative perception of retirement and the aging process.  Science has found a positive correlation between passion, fitness, sports activities, and being healthier and more fulfilled. This book is about choices for changing our lives for the better.
This is the first to provide, in rich detail, how to think “outside the box” by providing examples of how and why older individuals push their physical, mental, and emotional limits to new frontiers.  The focus is on individuals who are optimistic, competitive, and perform at unfathomable levels in grueling events.  Their intriguing stories demonstrate evolution to a more proficient level of physical and mental functioning.
 The books unique content is based on the author’s journey(  a  PhD  workaholic psychologist) along with seven interviews of outstanding athletes in sporting events that include the Tevis Cup, Western States 100 mile run, Swanton Pacific 100 mile Ride and Tie, Dipsea ( America’s oldest trail race), Hawaiian Iron man, Molokai to Oahu Outrigger canoe race, and national and international rowing.
I present a psychological basis for understanding the motivation of the mature competitor; why the older athlete is able to compete, train, and win; describe how the thinking process affects achievement and performance; the importance of incorporating play and fun through exercise; how to fulfill meaning in life; a road map to create and begin a healthy lifestyle; and provide inspirational models.
 In 1997 my transformation began with the sport of ride and tie.  Since that year, I have completed over 1800 miles in that sport, and in 2008 (age 68) won the 100 mile ride and tie at the Swanton Pacific with my horse Gypsy and my young partner Jonathan Jordan; in 2002(age 62) was a division winner in the Western states 100; and at age 60 in the year 2000 completed the Tevis on my horse, Raider.
My name is Frank Lieberman, PhD, and I shall introduce you to seven remarkable men and women athletes that I met during my discovery. At Auburn Running Company, date and time to be determined for presentation and book signing.
PS This is Lew Hollander month.
