Cheat the Clock uses Jim Pressler as a jumping-off point to examine the foremost advice and research about aging well, with actionable advice for real people that they can easily incorporate into their lives on a daily basis. Jim's experience is worth sharing: Margaret's research showed that he is proof there are many small, easy steps that people can take that make a difference in how good they feel and look over many years, and that the proverbial "good genes" don't play as large of a role as we once thought. These are not the ideals of a fitness buff or a nutrition fanatic; these minor tweaks in diet, exercise, lifestyle, and personal care are painless to adopt and achievable for anyone, but can have a big payoff over time.
In Margaret's engaging style, Cheat the Clock shows the long-term rewards of adopting a new regimen focused on these crucial aspects:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Engaging in the right kind and right amount of exercise
- Eating an anti-aging diet
- Getting antioxidants from food
- Discovering the wonders of the right dosage of Vitamin E
- Avoiding behaviors that age people the most
- Having plenty of sex
- Taking care of skin and teeth
- Adjusting attitude and lifestyle

Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.
Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,” said Billy Graham, known by many as God’s Ambassador. “I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.”
Nearing Home, written by Billy Graham in his nineties, explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,” said the author. “Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. —Acts 20:24 (ESV)
“Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —BILLY GRAHAM
