Product Description: In a climate where many unsubstantiated claims are made, it is essential to have access to the best evidence-based knowledge on how to extend healthy life expectancy. Researchers, healthcare practitioners, and policy makers come together annually at the International Research Center for Healthy Ageing and Longevity to discuss, debate, and exchange ideas, and the proceedings of the most recent conference is contained in the chapters of this volume.

Now, more than ever, a critical need exists for the development of appropriate policies so that aging is seen as a resource and not as an isolating and segregating experience. Solid research elucidating the processes of aging must be translated into strategies for clinical practice in order to respond to the needs of an aging population.

The full spectrum of proven and potential aging interventions including pharmaceutical, nutritional, clinical, educational, policy, complementary, preventive, and restorative means were explored at this international meeting. The topics covered in this volume include the following:

(1) Nutritional interventions in aging and age-associated disease, both diet and supplements;
(2) dementia in an aging population;
(3) the new caring -- financial and asset management and substitute decision-making by and for older people;
(4) how we improve the quality of research into healthy aging;
(5) promoting balance and preventing falls in an aging population;
(6) population aging in developing countries;
(7) promoting health and well-being of the older community;
(8) hormone and metabolic interventions in aging;
(9) community attitudes and approaches towards human life extension;
(10) respecting the elders in our care;
(11) the biology of healthy aging and longevity;
(12) basic science and mechanisms of aging and longevity;
(13) sustaining optimal aging -- inner strength and mutual support;
(14) wellbeing, retirement planning and expectations of the baby-boomer generation;
(15) natural and complementary approaches to age-associated disorders;
(16) psychosocial predictors of healthy aging and longevity -- lessons from longitudinal studies;
(17) healthy longevity -- lessons learned from the world's longest-lived people;
(18) the aging brain;
(19) baby-boomer work force participation;
(20) quality of care and quality of life for the elderly;
(21) frontiers of knowledge in biogerontology;
(22) behavioural and social interventions for healthy aging and longevity.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs.
