Editorial Reviews

Vogue
"A distillation of common-sense advice mixed with more surprising, age-specific mandates all designed to promote longevity and a healthy later life."
Washington Examiner
"The book breaks everything down into quick, manageable bites that are easy to swallow and follow, and it's full of good, hearty advice."
Mark Liponis
"Chock full of things you can actually do to improve your health. Dr. Sears's new book gives so many insights and is presented in an easy and accessible way."
Vincent Fortanasce
"Prime-Time Health is a classic. It is not just a health book; it is a compelling and captivating portal to success, happiness, and the hope that life is wondrous and limitless when you are healthy and fit."
Henry Lodge
"A great book that covers the waterfront of healthy aging: what to eat, what to do, and, above all, how to live."
Stephen T. Sinatra
"A very important and exciting book. Its strength is in its simplicity. I recommend it without any reservation whatsoever."
Dr. Louis J. Ignarro
"In his usual science-made-simple style, Dr. Sears shows how your body can make its own internal medicines to act like a fountain of youth. I enjoyed reading Prime-Time Health from cover to cover. I recommend you read it, and then do it."
Publishers Weekly
Baby- and child-care experts, the Searses present a healthy aging book for their patients' parents and grandparents, featuring an eight-week self-care nutrition and exercise plan to achieve and maintain optimum health. Now a 12-year survivor of colon cancer, Bill Sears restored himself after surgery and treatment by researching, developing and implementing the LEAN (Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition) regimen around which this book is centered. Part I helps readers understand how the body changes with age; part II addresses how to have healthy heart, brain, gut, senses, breathing, bones and joints, and skin. Part III covers the importance of weight loss and better nutrition via sixteen “superfoods” rich in anti-oxidants and Omega 3s; part IV offers the science behind and guidance for quelling inflammation that leads to heart disease and cancer. and part V discusses fitness. Finally, part VI puts it all together in the personal Prime-Time Plan with self-tests and list-making exercises. Amusing, encouraging, and easy-to-remember prescriptive mnemonics and slogans appear in text, boxes, sidebars, and illustrations to enliven a lucid, personal and professional narrative. Sears provides what similar books often lack—an honest and trusted voice plus the latest medical science in a comprehensive, accessible program that is hard to resist. (Jan.)
