In short, just a very fun and informative book with several worthy goals. For one, it educates your average person in the inner workings of the human body. It does this quite entertainingly through frequent quizzes, trivia, facts, and interesting pictures- for instance the authors use a lot of elf cartoon. Corny, but fun.

Additionally, the book also gives one many helpful tips on how to keep their body running smoother and it is a pretty informative and amusing read that should enhance the well-being of many- especially middle-agers like me who want to learn more about how their bodies work so they can keep it running smoothly in the years to come. Aged readers may also be interested in Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff to keep the shoulder working well- 54% of people over the age of 60 have a torn rotator cuff.

Note: People who have read the first "You The Owner's Manual" will notice additional information on the liver and pancreas, as well as a new workout chapter.

Good info for an uninformed american

This is a book claiming to be an outline for how to stay healthy, but not once do the authors recommend eating ORGANIC produce. It appears they too are under the spell of the big corporations of this country. This book is an easy read for the average person who knows ...
This is a book claiming to be an outline for how to stay healthy, but not once do the authors recommend eating ORGANIC produce. It appears they too are under the spell of the big corporations of this country. This book is an easy read for the average person who knows little about the human body and its functions, yet the authors are still traditionally trained medical doctors who think drugs and surgery are the best way to treat ailments of the human body. Go ahead and read this book if you'd like to continue eating your animals, dairy, coke and coffee along with your daily dose of drugs, but I recommend a more truthful and natural way of healing the body, as in many of the books written by Paul Bragg.

    Too vague for someone with any medical background

    If you have no medical background, never worked in lab, xray, nursing, housekeeping etc..
    you might like this book.
    It is pretty light on info imho.
    Does not hve pics of some of what has been on Oz's show which would be helpful for general public .
    anatomy pics that is..
    for instance. My sis in law wanted to know what normal feces should look like, I tried to find a pic in this book. Not there. Yet Oz talks about the colon, pooping etc a lot.
    that is just one little example.
    if you can get this book for 10.00 , get it.

    Surgeory from a nutritionist

    For the ones who need advise from a heart surgeon to get healthy nutrition habits. For those who need to have a heart surgeory from a nutrition expert, there is no choice for the time being.
