    Lunden seeks fountain of youth

    Everyone is familiar with blonde, perky Joan Lunden whose smiling face has been beaming from our tv screens for years. She is the quintessential all-American girl-next-door. Now apparently she is on a quest to live long and prosper. Her journey has included climbing mountains, horseback riding, speaking to gurus and learning the power of positive thinking. Granted, the rest of us probably won't meet Deepak Chopra and the other authors she mentions; we won't be jamming with Michael Bolton (let alone become his buddy); we may not get the opportunity to climb mountains or fly military vehicles (especially if our job description doesn't cover it); and we won't be rubbing shoulders with all the other celebrities who have given her good advice over the years. Aside from that she gives the whole healthy eating, exercise and getting-enough-rest routine a shallow going over. Lunden looks great, especially for her age as she frequently points out, and since she has a professional staff to make her look even better for photo shoots, the whole thing looks pretty simple. I read the book in a single weekend and was left with the feeling that something was missing. She kept saying, 'I'll go over that in more depth in a later chapter...' and the later chapters were really not in-depth. She uses lots of cliche's and does't really give any new advice that your health teacher and parents didn't already give you. Which probably explains why I got the book on a bargain rack. I recommend checking it out at the local library rather than investing in a copy to keep.
