Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men—as much fun to read as it is persuasive—Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules."

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

    " A perfect book to read as I begin retirement! This book gave me a green light to exercise and enjoy! Incredible and supportive. Makes me eager to get up each day to exercise and enjoy and to stop with the pressures in life. "

    " Great book on health and fitness. I've read plenty in this category and this is one of the better ones. Interesting information about human evolutionary biology and how it impacts what we can do (and not do) to get in shape and stay fit. Great for people 40 or older. "

    " Wanted to see what they wrote about in the original book before taking a look at the woman's version. Sound advice and interesting info about the science behind nutrition, exercise, and how our various brains work. "

    " Are you an older guy looking for some basic health principles and a seriously good pep talk? If so, this book is for you.

    Even for a younger guy like me, this book served as motivation to get to the gym more frequently. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 3/4/2011

    " Good advice based on incorrect reasoning - man evolving from snails and jelly fish (p.43) Overkill on the exercise, but I did glean some useful insights. Glad I read it. *This version was for men. There is a version out of women. "

    " If you skip the chapters by the good old boy and just read the doctor's chapters this is a great book. Basically a reminder to do what we all know we're supposed to do (eat well and exercise) but with scientific proof to get you motivated. "
