Publisher's Summary

Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond. Harry's Rules (Harry being Harry S. Lodge, M.D.) are only seven, but they completely reverse the typical path of aging. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life. Quit eating crap. Connect and commit. And to prove it is his star patient, the no-punches-pulled Chris Crowley, a 70-year-old who left the slippery slope of retirement and turned his life around. Harry tells you what to do. Chris tells you how. And their argument is irresistible.
You're a guy. You have responsibilities. You think about the future, the 401K, the kids' schools. There's one other thing you can't afford not to think about: yourself. Marrying science and reality, Younger Next Year is a convincing and passionate argument that if you train for the Next Third of life, you'll have a ball. Follow its simple rules and you'll find yourself in perhaps the best shape, in mind, body, and spirit, of your life.

Awesome!!!

Believe it or not, I've purchased 30 of these CD sets. I found it to be that good. Basically, this series gives you the knowledge of how to get functionally younger at 50 for the next five years and maintain that level of fitness until your mid 80's.

The information is clear and well explained.

I bought so many sets because I gave them to people and made the CDs available in the church that I pastor.

Highly advised that anyone interested in overall well being get this.

Good info in a too-long format

This is very good, if fairly commonly understood, information and the presentation (swtching from a doctor to a "patient") is appropriate and effective. However, the majority of the advice is stuff that's generally well known to folks these days but less generally followed. And I suspect that the same material could be just as effectively communicated in 1/4 to 1/3 the space. It would be helpful to have a very brief summary and, perhaps, a "worksheet" to readilly consult. Have listened to (and not read) the book, it would be necessary for the listener to take notes (which is impractical if listening while driving, as I did).

Horrible audiobook

Would you try another book written by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge or narrated by Don Leslie and Rick Adamson ?

Both narrators sound like used-car salesmen and come across as smug, insincere, conniving and with an agenda. There are a few golden nuggets hidden in the book, but really only enough to fill a few pages and the rest seems to be a waste. I would not recommend this audiobook at all

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration is annoying. The two voices sound like they are from beer or toothpaste commercials. Totally artificial and disingenuous

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There are some nuggets up to the point I couldn't take any more. Exercise more regularly, eat more healthy food, be bold and join groups. Hmmm

Excellent, doable, uplifting advice for older men

It's a shame that the only other UK written review of this book is so negative - I suspect it will have stopped a number of us Brits having access to some truly life-enhancing advice. The other reviewer is right that the narration is likely to be a bit much for us non-Americans, but get used to the authors' passion and enthusiasm (not insincerity) as expressed by the narrators, act on the advice and you will most likely benefit. You may even benefit hugely. I have.

It’s a book for men

If I was a man I’m sure I’d enjoy this book and be excited about becoming a testosterone filled fit healthy old man. However as I’m not a man I found it quite egotistical and slightly ridiculous
