    A reviewer

    Of all the anti-aging books I've seen, this is one of most laid back and entertaining. It's written by two guys. Harry, the doctor, covers the science aspects of aging, while the other guy, Chris, talks about applying the info..... The book is centered around 'Harry's Rules.' These are seven rules for the reader to follow. They include such things as 'Quit eating crap' or 'Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.' While they might seem to be basic pieces of information, they are sound advice and have some science behind them..... All-in-all, I found this to be a very informative and amusing book and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a book on aging. The realistic key here is not to go into things thinking you're going to STOP the aging process, rather think of SLOWING DOWN the aging process.

    Read this book!

    I definitely enjoyed this book. The way it is written makes it all the more enjoyable! Looking forward to making my years between 50-80 my most productive and 'young' of my life!!! Gets you into a great mindset. Much like another book that I recently picked up---'Build Your Mind, Your Body Will Follow'. This isn't all that much about age, but about internal happiness. Order both and you will be smiling all day long!

    Inspirational Common Sense

    This is a very well written book which is more than another 'how to' manual. Crowley's wry sense of humor and inate sense of style makes this very readable and fun for those approaching,or even deep into their golden years. Best of all his common sense approach to health and happiness in retirement has an irresistable quality, even to those of us living in the Philadelphia in the dead of winter. After you have read a few chapters you will start exercising and making good health a priority. I have had no hesitation in enthusiastically recommending this book to all my friends. Walter Foulke

    A Real Motivator

    My mother was depressed about growing older and 'falling apart.' I heard an interview with the authors and what they said made sense. So I bought the book and read it. Wow! The style is fun and young, the advice is excellent and the whole idea was a pick-me-up for both Mom (78) and myself (51). We're both younger already.

    Essential for anyone over 50 !!!!!!!!!

    If you are over 50 - and particularly, like me, over 60 - this is the book you need if you want not only to live, but to live well after 80. It has practical advice, sound medical backup and an engaging motivational tone and style. And, unlike all other health books I have read, it is superbly well written and a joy to read. I couldn't recommend it more highly!!!

    Yeah! You better read it!

    A first-rate, well written program for getting younger and staying fit! Pithy, right-on writing and cutting edge science make this book the ONE book you need to digest and follow for the rest of your life. Crowley's elegant and captivating prose and Lodge's grasp of 21st century medicine make for an entertaining, enlightening and extraordinary read.
