The body is the most fascinating machine ever created, and nobody talks about it in ways that are as illuminating and compelling as Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz do. In You: The Owner's Manual, they showed how the human body works in general, and in You: On a Diet, they explained how bodies lose weight and stay fit; both books have sold in the millions. Now, in You: Staying Young, the doctors talk about what happens as the body ages. As with their previous titles, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz have conducted tireless research and will introduce fascinating and crucial information in an unforgettable way.

Most people think of the aging of their bodies the same way they think of the aging of their cars: As people get older, it's inevitable that they're going to break down; it could be in just a few ways or it could be in dozens of ways. Most people have the notion that once they reach 40 or so, a slow and steady decline of the mind, eyes, ears, joints, arteries, libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life begins to take effect.

However, according to Drs. Roizen and Oz, that's a mistake. Aging isn't a decline of the body's systems. It's actually very purposeful. The very systems and biological processes that cause people to age are actually designed to help people when they're a little bit younger.

So what's the role of those who are part of the aging population? To learn how these systems work, so they can be reprogrammed to work the way they did when they were younger. Listeners' goals should be to die young at any age. That means living a high quality of life (with everything from working joints to working genitals) until the day they die. The doctors' real goal isn't just to make people live longer; it's to allow them to maintain vibrancy throughout their entire lives. Download and start listening now!

    " This book may have been informative, but I was turned off by the endless, pressing need the authors felt to turn every body system into a metaphor and assault you with cartoons depicting said metaphors, as if you have no ability to grasp biology or anatomy. "
