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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from highly recommended I bought it for my wife as a birthday gift 3 months ago. My wife has been applying what I have learned in this book and down 13 pounds. It's just 3 months! I highly recommend this book. And another one I want to recommend is Dr.Kong's Younger Next Day, a book written by a skin researcher. Both of the books are truly worth a read. 5 star!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this for a milestone birthday gift - give it just because This book adds humour and science to much of what we already know in a way that makes it so compelling that I will be shocked if you don't put on your runners and run to the store to buy copies for your friends that you plan to grow old with. A must read for women who care about their health and the quality of their lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential reading This is a must-read for all women reaching menopause. Engaging, well documented and easy to read, this book is a wake-up call to all women to take care of their selves and their bodies. While I am a dedicated runner, this book provided me with the incentive to do more - six days a week - and to consider exercise and community involvement as my life work, not as a sidebar to an already busy life. I bought the original version for my husband, and he is totally on board as well. It is a project that is already showing results: I am leaner and stronger than I have ever been. Do yourself a favour, and get a copy. You'll be happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this book to Everyone you Love I always knew that I should exercise but now I understand why its just not optional. Its part of my life job. Its clearly written and is full of great saying and examples. My favourite quote is " you have to grow old but you don't have to rot". It will change the way that you think about exercising and the physiology of your metabolism. Truly its the fountain of youth without fancy potions or magice diets. Everyone over forty needs to read this book sooner rather than later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Young at heart This is a good addition to the authors' previous book. It isn't the usual blah, blah, blah, but scientific information which amount to common sense. I am grateful to the authors for keeping me and my wife young at heart. I was happy to buy for my wife this book as "her own" copy, after we both extensively studied the original "Younger Next Year". Another great book that I highly recommend is "Can We Live 150 Years". In fact these two titles should be sold in one package as they complement each other.
