1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Nigel G. Lang on 20 Oct. 2008
Format: Paperback
I confess when I first came across this book I approached it with some scepticism. Interestingly Dr Wilson is an Oxford PhD and his writing is from the standpoint of an intelligent enquiring patient rather than a clinician. Once into the book it becomes more and more interesting even covering medical breakthroughs in the last two years. What makes this book particularly useful is that it provides first class advice on practical preventitive measures for all to remain sound in body and mind. If patients were to read and follow the advice in this book I think that not only could they live significantly longer but also by not needing to come to the surgery they would save the NHS and tax payer countless millions; on the downside, I could be out of a job!

Format: Paperback
A really practical and detailed guide that can be read end to end or just uesed as a reference book - some technical information but its never too complex or patronising in its delivery. Genuinely useful and excellent all round.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Martin Brown on 3 Oct. 2008
Format: Paperback
I have found this book to be excellent, not only to start reading from front to back but also to be able to dip into about any particular medical subject. Despite feeling well and fit enough for my age, one of my worries was nevertheless to find out about the effect of eating as much chocolate as I do. For a few minutes I started to get worried Dr.Wilson hadn't addressed the subject until I found it under cocoa. All's well, apparently, so long as in moderation as ever! There is a great deal of research that has gone into producing this well written and informative book.

By Richard Potts on 29 Sept. 2008
Format: Paperback
Dr Wilson has put together a compendium of useful medical information for men who want to know a bit more than just the basics about many (if not most) of those worrisome health related questions that one asks oneself but without knowing where to look for the answer. The book covers a wide range of modern problem issues including weight loss/gain, depression & anxiety, hair loss, diabetes & most other troubles that one can think of. The book devotes a separate chapter to each subject, thus making it easy to dip in & out of without needing to read all of it.
Dr Wilson gives information about the complaint, the latest breakthroughs in research & the modern remedies. He gives enough detail to supply the interested enquirer without becoming too technical for the lay reader. He adds considerable value by including his informed opinion about the state of the art in the areas he covers as well as giving his view on the efficacy of the remedies on offer.
I found this book informative & interesting; I will keep it to hand as I know it will come in useful in future to alleviate new medical worries.

Format: Paperback
You could buy twenty books on individual health topics to get all the information that is packed into tbis very easy-to-read volume in 46 chapters.
While medical breakthroughs, exercise and nutrition dominate, Ian Wilson covers everything else from jetlag and depression to sleep, sex and the meaning of life and death. His background in philosophy and counselling make for an unusual and fascinating approach. The medical stuff is bang up-to-date. If you thought the worried well were a bunch of rich hypochondriacs, think again. Everyone should be thinking of taking care of their health preventatively. This book shows how to do it in 1000 ways that should add ten years to your life.
Worth ten times the price.

I found this a fascinating read. It is the sort of book one can dip in and out of and always come up with more little gems. I have been travelling for the last couple of weeks and took the book with me, and it turned out to be ideal for reading on planes and whilst waiting in Airports. It really is an invaluable tome. As something of a 'silver surfer' myself, concerned about all the ailments that accompany getting older, I was pleased to see that I am not alone. All I need to do now is try and respond to all this good advice. An excellent present for anyone over forty.

Thoughtful reflection

This book is a treasure trove of really useful and up to date medical information. Clearly written in layman's language that ensures it can be understood by non-medically trained readers.
I'm confident that if more of us read this book we would dramatically decrease our dependence on the National Health. By ensuring that we took better care of ourselves, without recourse to intrusive medical treatments.
Dr Wilson's excellent book should be at the very top of your Christmas book list for those friends and relations you really care about.

Format: Paperback
It is easy to taunt the worried well and I to be honest was very disparaging at the whole idea of this book. Not for long though. Wilson, a self confessed Worried Well nut has done a brilliant job of assembling all the laterst thinking and research that should concern any man past 40 never mind just the worried well! It has certainly influenced my thinking as I jump behind the ranks of the worried well, with a sense of urgency and enthusiasm I did not think I was capable of.
