Studies show there is no difference between the effects of inactivity and effects of aging. To be active- and to stay supple- are the causes of youthfulness, not its effect. 
John Jerome's entertaining, intelligent book on stretching will make young athletes better and stronger, and keep the rest of us   younger longer. This guide to how the body works and what it needs for maximum flexibility will be an eye-opner for people of all ages, for aaathletes of all abilities. 
Put plainly: flexibility is life, and the more suppleness you have, the better you'll function, the more easily you'll move, and the better your life will be.
