    I Also Recommend:

    Y O U N G 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 Year". In fact these two titles should be sold in one package as they complement each other

    Couldn't Put It Down

    This book is so entertaining and full of great advice. I have been trying to get myself into a regular exercise routine for years and have failed miserably. I took the advice given in this book and joined a gym yesterday. I can't wait to get started. I even convinced 'Old Fred' (you'll have to read the book to get this one) to join with me. We are on our way to Younger Next Year.

    HANDY REFERENCE AND A FINE MOTIVATOR

    Using their recent bestseller 'Younger Next Year' as a springboard, authors Crowley and Lodge now offer 'Younger Next Year for Women.' Obviously, there are different health issues to be addressed for the women and the authors have done so concisely, in easy to understand language, and with an optimum of encouragement. As Gail Sheehy notes in her foreword, 'Extraordinary...Use it as a kind of bible reread a few pages now and then, to remind you of the central commandment: Jump in for the rest of your life.' And, according to the authors, the rest of our lives can be healthier, happier, thinner, and younger. Related in alternating chapters, Lodge and Crowley tell readers how to become functionally younger and learn to live like healthy, fit 50-year-olds when the candles on the cake say we're in our eighties or more. We learn that 70% of what we normally refer to as aging is optional. In this category are signs of weakness, sore joints and apathy. Perhaps more importantly, we're told that 50% of all aging associated illnesses can be eliminated.. Sound too good to be true? Crowley and Lodge posit that what you have to do is follow the rules, which are Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life. Do serious aerobic exercise for four days a week for the rest of your life. Do serious strength training, with weights. (For how long? You guessed it - the rest of your life.) Spend less than you make. Quit eating junk! Care. Connect and commit. Re the last rule the importance of being passionate about something is stressed. Can't summon passion? At least be very interested in - keep your mind alert. And, make friends, connect with other people. 'Younger Next Year for Women' isn't a book that can be quickly digested - there's much food for thought and action. Gail Sheehy is correct - this book's a keeper so that you can refer to it again and again. - Gail Cooke
