Overview

This special digital edition of the #1 bestseller offers even more insights for understanding your body and managing your health! It features 20 videos with Dr. Mike Roizen sharing valuable tips to help you live longer—and younger—plus ten interactive quizzes that test your knowledge and enhance your grasp of body systems, nutritional factors, and disease.

With new health studies and advice bombarding us every day, few people know much about what chugs, churns, and thumps throughout the miraculous system that is the human anatomy.

YOU: The Owner's Manual challenges preconceived notions about how the human body works and ages, and takes you on a fascinating grand tour of all your blood-pumping, food-digesting, and numbers-remembering systems and organs—including the heart, brain, lungs, immune system, bones, and sensory organs.

In this now classic health manual, America's favorite doctors, Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, discuss how YOU actually have control over your genes. Discover how diseases start and how they affect your body—as well as advice on how to prevent and beat conditions that threaten your quality of life.

There are also 100 questions asked by you, and answered by the experts. For instance, do you know which of the following statements are true?

As you increase the amount you exercise, the rewards you gain from it increase as well. If you're not a smoker, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to your lungs. Your immune system always knows the difference between your own cells and enemy invaders. The biggest threat to your arteries is cholesterol. Memory loss is a natural, inevitable part of aging. Stress is the greatest ager, and controlling it changes which of your genes is on.

Did you answer "true" for any of the above? Then take a look inside. Complete with exercise tips, nutritional guidelines, simple lifestyle changes, and alternative approaches, YOU: The Owner's Manual debunks myths and gives you an easy, comprehensive, and life-changing How-To plan—as well as great-tasting and calorie-saving recipes—that can help you live a healthier, younger, and better life.

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.

All of Drs. Roizen and Oz's books are choc-full of common-sense discussions of, and solutions to, widely experienced health issues and concerns. Written in easily understood layman's terms, it is still appropriate for either the inexperienced or more knowledgeable patient. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of presentation. There is solid, valuable information contained within the pages, which can make navigating the oft confusing waters toward a healthier lifestyle more efficient and rewarding.

There is a reason Dr. Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Roizen write best-sellers--their books are excellent. You: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition: An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger, they outdo themselves. This edition has been carefully updated and expanded to teach the reader everything we need to know to keep our bodies healthy and young. Specifically, the updated version includes a chapter on the liver, new recipes and a new workout. The book also includes a 100 FAQ's from their reader's inquiries. The book resembles the Dummies in layout and tone and the authors write simply and, at times, with humor. Included are 'Factoids' and the like. The book begins with information on how to achieve superior health. There are chapters on the major organs and how they function, cancer, workouts and recipes. There is an extensive index, a must for this type of book.The reference book is a must for every library. By the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.
