Overview

Younger Next Year: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy - Until You're 80 and Beyond by Chris Crowley, Henry S. Lodge

Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules."

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.

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. Aging readers may also find Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff helpful as 54% of people over the age of 60 get a torn rotator cuff.

It is a very good book for anyone concerned about aging. We get more aware of our age at the time of retirement. Switching from a daily-work routine to a totally new idea of all-time-holidays is often not as pleasurable as we expected thirty or more years before. At that difficult time, it is very helpful to focus on the Four Pillars of Longevity as suggested by the authors of the book: 1. Six-times-a-week exercising. 2. Eating for nutrition, not for any other reason. Focusing on fruits and vegetables. 3. Avoiding boredom, developing your hobbies. 4. Connecting with many other people - creating a solid circle of friends. The book provides some good medical background for these readers that like to understand why certain things are happening. Another book well worth reading is 'Can We Live 150 Years'. It is the Body Maintenance Handbook, as the subtitle states. I like the common sense approach that is prevalent throughout the pages. Some of the author's ideas, for obvious reasons are similar to the ones presented by Crovley and Lodge, but on the whole it is a totally different book.

This book is an easy and informative read. I have enjoyed the information presented and would recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their health and maintaining good health throuh the senior years.

This book is not geared for me at all. I am a 37 year old woman and it's talking to retiring men. But it's a fantastic read, make a lot of common sense and certainly is motivator for change when looking at your life as a whole. Getting in better shape now definitely gives us a better quality of life when we're older. I think I will read Younger Next Year for Women just to keep the ball rolling after this one.

One has to only pick up a newspaper or magazine to read about yet another luxury retirement center being built. And, they do mean upscale. Recently there was one featured that had a concierge, gourmet cuisine, a valet and, as one resident stated, 'They even change the light bulbs for you!' Well, with such a posh existence awaiting it's incumbent upon us to live longer, stronger and healthier lives. Your resource for such a goal, according to authors Crowley and Lodge, is 'Younger Next Year.' If you have as much fun listening as the voice performers evidently did reading, you'll be quite pleased. Both Don Leslie and Rick Adamson performed with contagious enthusiasm and all around bonhomie. Author Crowley is a former litigator who retired some 15 years ago to enjoy life and his wife (not necessarily in that order). Lodge is an internist whose specialty is healthcare and preventive medicine. Thus, 'Younger Next Year' is a blend of scientific information and what really amounts to common sense. We're instructed to exercise, eat what's good for us, socialize, and be actively interested in something. My one caveat is that this book is addressed to men - what about advice for the distaff side of the family?
