Younger Next Year: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy - Until You're 80 and Beyond

Workman Publishing Co | October 10, 2007 | Trade Paperback

Younger Next Year: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy - Until You're 80 and Beyond is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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.

Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you''ll have a ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How long can we really live? It is a very good book for anyone concerned about aging. We get more aware of our age at the time of retirement. Switching from a daily-work routine to a totally new idea of all-time-holidays is often not as pleasurable as we expected thirty or more years before. At that difficult time, it is very helpful to focus on the Four Pillars of Longevity as suggested by the authors of the book: 1. Six-times-a-week exercising. 2. Eating for nutrition, not for any other reason. Focusing on fruits and vegetables. 3. Avoiding boredom, developing your hobbies. 4. Connecting with many other people - creating a solid circle of friends. The book provides some good medical background for these readers that like to understand why certain things are happening. Another book well worth reading is "Can We Live 150 Years". It is the Body Maintenance Handbook, as the subtitle states. I like the common sense approach that is prevalent throughout the pages. Some of the author's ideas, for obvious reasons are similar to the ones presented by Crovley and Lodge, but on the whole it is a totally different book. Many excerpts are available for reading at the author's website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting, engaging, and very informative! This book is one that everyone should read! It provides a straightforward method of how to live your life to the fullest. It is not just an exercise book, but also a mental help book. The explanations in the book are based on basic biology and make so much sense that it is hard to disagree with them. This book is very humorous, extremely well-written, to-the-point, and basically one that should not be missed. You will not be able to put it down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book I enjoyed the book so much I bought the CD version to listen to it in my car (the book is better). Lots of great info, not just health but about getting older in general, relationships, appearance, and attitudes. Well researched and explained without being boring, even funny at times.

Editorial Reviews

"An extraordinary book . . . it is easy to read, the science is right, and if one follows Henry Lodge''s and Chris Crowley''s recommendations, both mental and physical aging can be delayed. I wish my patients would follow their advice."
