Co-written by one of the country’s most prominent internists, Dr. Henry “Harry” Lodge, and his star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley, Younger Next Year for Women is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. This is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. Using the same inspired structure of alternating voices, Chris and Harry have recast material specifically for women, who already live longer and take better care of themselves than men. New material covers menopause and post-menopause, as well as cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and more. This is the book that can show us how to turn back our biological clocks-how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry’s Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don’t eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work-and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation. Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/10/2014

    " Like the male version, this is an eye opening look at what we need to stay mobile and productive to almost the end of our days. The premise is simple, all it takes is a little effort. There are no complicated rules to follow, diets to be maintained, or specific exercise to be followed. Everyone over 40 should read this and those younger would be ahead of the game if they went ahead and read it now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lil | 1/15/2014

    " While this book contains a lot of good information for the over fifty crowd, it was too long and needed a heavier editing hand. The authors alternating chapters and I generally much preferred the physician's chapters to the hardy-har-har tone of the co-author, who is meant to serve as a real life example to aspire to. Probably 2.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monique | 1/7/2014

    " Worth reading, I think. Makes me actually want to be more active and I've always hated exercise just for the sake of exercise....I have too many other things to do! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 12/24/2013

    " What a book. Worth reading over and over again. Lot of humor informative and definately fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 11/20/2013

    " I thought this book had a lot of really great advice. I would have given it 5 stars but there was too much blah, blah, blah mixed in with the advice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Townsend | 9/30/2013

    " Fabulous book. Motivational, life changing, sensible. I highly recommend this but it's not for the faint of heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 7/27/2013

    " Although written for 50-somethings, this is important information for any age group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 6/5/2013

    " Lots of good information presented in story form that pulls you along. This is a book that I'll continue to use... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda Wall | 11/9/2012

    " Excellent! I like how exercise bathes every part of your body (through the circulation)in a growth and repair solution instead of a "time to decay solution" if you don't exercise. It's got me moving. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mblaineeichin | 10/6/2012

    " This book is awesome so far - they wrote younger next year (for men) first - so get a copy based on which you are... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Miller | 8/8/2012

    " This book is surprisingly funny and well-written. Although parts of it get a little too "scientific" for my tastes, it does an excellent job of smacking some sense into the over-40 crowd by encouraging many life-extending and enriching behaviors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allie Smith | 8/2/2012

    " Good, sound advice. But loved the "layman's" chapters better than the doctor's. The doctor talked too much about the cavemen:)! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 12/7/2011

    " I really would have given it 4 stars except for Chris's chapters on weight... A man should never write a book about women's weight... It's just wrong... But I love the rules, - I love the science, and I love the rules... they make me smile, and i plan to live the next third of my life by them... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 9/6/2010

    " I like this book, but it is more motivation than hard science or medical advice. It is advice, just not so specific. Most of the stuff you have probably heard. Where this book does a great job is re-iterating the stakes: do you want to be in a wheel chair when you are 80 or still skiing downhill? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Patterson | 2/21/2010

    " This book was given to all the women at work. (the men got their own book). I am suppose to be a "NEW WOMAN" after I read it - - - we'll see! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 12/9/2009

    " This book is actually for those heading in to later years but we can all benefit from a reality check on our health, you if you want to make some positive changes and lives longer and stronger. I am going to try it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yogilee | 7/5/2009

    " Convicting and inspiring for women of a certain age. There is perhaps a bit too much talk of evolution and perhaps just a bit too much talk...period. Nevertheless, it explains how to live our best life in the second half, or even the third third of our lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 8/26/2008

    " It's pretty good and basic. Mostly, the authors yell at you for not exercising enough. "
