Book Description

May 2005
Micheal Roizen and Mehmet Oz, two powerhouse doctors in both the medical profession and in the media, have teamed up to write YOU: THE OWNER'S MANUAL - the book you should read BEFORE any other health book. It takes the mystery out of medicine and health by giving you the power to not just know what to do to keep fit, but to understand why and how. Simply put, it's an owner's manual for your body. The book opens with a quiz 'How Well Do You Know Your Body?', which will set the stage for the following chapters, each devoted to an integral part of the body including the heart, brain, lungs, immune system, bones, and sensory organs. Each chapter will contain common myths, which the authors will debunk. They will then give both the hard facts and easy ways to make the body run like a well-oiled machine. The writing style is engaging, and smart; the accompanying black and white illustrations conjure up the details and accuracy of Gray's Anatomy, but with a whimsical twist. This is a health book like no other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy and physiology for dummies. 8 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
In short, just a very informative book with several worthy goals. For one, it educates the reader in the inner workings of the human body. It does this quite entertainingly through trivia, facts, and interesting pictures (for instance the authors use a lot of elves). Additionally, the book also gives you many helpful tips on how to keep your body running smoother.

While there is a lot information, I really would like to have seen a reference section at the end of the book to support its advice- some of it could be considered controversial in medical circles (who hasn't had the experience first-hand or at least heard of two doctors disagreeing about the treatment of a medical problem).

All in all, a pretty informative and amusing read, it should enhance the well-being of many. Also recommend "The Sixty-Second Motivator" for readers who have trouble making healthy lifestyle changes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 30 Dec 2005
By elektra
Format:Hardcover
It's an excellent book to read and very easy to understand, there are no medical complex explainations, instead, humour and simple definitions- even a child could read without getting bored. Mehmet Oz is one of the most famous heart surgeons in the world and this book is a credit to him. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars You and your Body 14 Sep 2005
By Joy
Format:Hardcover
I loved getting taken through the inside of my body in small steps even a child could follow. I feel better a understanding of topics and changes that have taken place in myself and my family has gone through after having read this book. It was also fun to take the quiz- a quick trip to back to school for some of us.
I also purchased "The Backsmart Fitness Plan" I learned a lot about the proper way to exercise and the errors I was doing resulting in no progess in my workouts. A good pairing for anyone who wants a balanced body!

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart, simple ways to care for your body 5 Oct 2009
By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
In the words of Oprah's favorite doctor, Mehmet C. Oz, and his co-author, Michael F. Roizen, "We're not going to make the science simplistic; we're going to make it simple." Their book describes how your body works in understandable, engaging terms and gives you an easy-to-follow strategy for making adjustments that will extend your life and improve your health. Roizen and Oz take you on a tour of your body, beginning with the heart and covering all the organs. They include a realistic diet and workout plan, fun illustrations and answers to common questions. getAbstract recommends this guide to all those well-intentioned people who know they should eat right and exercise more, but want to understand why.
