Editorial Reviews

The New York Times

“An extraordinary book . . . it is easy to read, the science is right, and if one follows Henry Lodge’s and Chris Crowley’s recommendations, both mental and physical aging can be delayed. I wish my patients would follow their advice.”
— K. Craig Kent, M.D., chief of vascular surgery, New York–Presbyterian Hospital

The Washington Post
"Brain-rattling, irresistible, hilarious. If you're up for it...[this book] could change your life."
—The Washington Post
From the Publisher

“One of our highest recommendations so far on growing old gracefully . . . Dr. Lodge, a prominent M.D., focuses on developments in cellular and evolutionary biology. Crowley, his guinea pig, is a firm believer in Dr. Lodge’s science and very good at convincing the reader that, if you’re a fifty-year-old man, you’d be an idiot not to start following the rules as soon as possible. . . . Should be read avidly by anyone growing older as well as forward-thinking youngsters.”
Kirkus Reports
Publishers Weekly
Believing they have a unique approach for improving men's lives, Crowley, a former litigator, and Lodge, a board-certified internist, collaborated to write this "evolutionary" health program. The authors base their plan on the idea that instead of looking forward to decades of pain as the body slowly deteriorates, it's possible to live as if you were 50, maybe even younger, for the rest of your life. Yet with the exception of "Harry's First Rule"-exercise at least six days a week-there isn't much that's new or groundbreaking in their agenda. Most recommendations fall under the "common sense" umbrella, though these suggestions may be news to many men, who aren't as steeped in the world of health and fitness as most women are (they may find the chapters dealing with nutrition and biology particularly informative). The authors' method of proffering their philosophy is rather trite, however, and their cavalier demeanor belies the significance of what they have to say. More than one-third of the book is devoted to how and why they came up with this program based on their own lives, with special attention to 70-year-old Crowley's impressive abilities (he says he can ski better now than he could 20 years ago). All told, this manual for healthy living offers sound, if unoriginal, advice with some hackneyed padding. (Jan.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Writing alternate chapters in this how to live better longer book, Crowley, a retired litigator and septuagenarian, first presents the lay reader's point of view; Lodge (Columbia Univ. Medical Sch.) then gives the physician's scientific follow-up on aging well. Drawing on Crowley's "Harry's 7 Rules" (e.g., exercise six days a week for the rest of your life, quit eating crap, and connect and commit), the authors explain how a man can reverse his biological clock and become functionally younger, making the last third of his life his best years. Written in a jocular, conversational style, the text exudes a hail-fellow-well-met exuberance that failed to reach this reader, who would have preferred more facts and less camaraderie. Those looking for a vade mecum to the Fountain of Youth are advised to wait for a better-written road map with more landmarks.-James Swanton, Harlem Hosp. Lib., New York Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    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.
