This is a great book and a terrific guide to all health issues in a man's life. It answered all of my health questions and more - on fitness, aging, and sexuality - and I know I can trust the information because it's from the American Medical Association. I'll recommend this guide to all the men I know and their families.

You'll find the latest information on such topics as: regular exercise, healthy nutrition, reducing stress, and extensive coverage on each internal system of the male body. It's a great gift for any loved male in your life!
