Revision with unchanged content. Modern nations have experienced both rapid aging of the population and dramatically increasing health care costs. Physical activity has been clearly identified as a critical variable in determining both quality of life and health care costs among older adults.

It is a timely and relevant contribution to promoting active lifestyles as the aging population increases dramatically. The book is addressed to professionals and researchers in Ge rontology, Public Health, Medicine, Kinesiology, Sports Sciences and Lei sure Studies. It is also very helpful for all those involved in making/promoting active lifestyle policies and programs for older adults.
