Written alternately by both a Dr and a layman it is a good balance between scientific & general info and attitude.
Bought this "men's" version for my husband and read the "women's" version on my Kindle. Whilst much of both books is the same I think it's well worth reading the one appropriate for your sex.
Above all, enjoy the book and then the rest of your life.
I found it to be a happy mix of medical research and anecdotal advice with a dollop of simple exercise planning on top. It's like a bible on how to live for the rest of your life.
One point though: I'd say this is very male-orientated with the female viewpoint somewhat left out. Still useful for the female reader, but should be borne in mind.
The book is written by a doctor and his patient. One provides the science, the other the stories and direct experience. "Harry's rules" seem to be simple and logical. But that doesn't make them easier to follow. In fact, one of the things that I liked most about this book is that they are absolutely honest and upfront about how hard it is to adopt and maintain. The argument becomes compelling when they outline the benefits and the inevitable consequences of doing nothing.
Harry's first and most important rule is to exercise - six days a week for the rest of your life. They did say it wasn't easy! I thought I was being reasonably virtuous by going to the gym two, sometimes even three, times a week. Now I exercise (almost) every day, use my heart monitor properly since I now understand what it's all about, and even after a few weeks I'm beginning to feel healthier and fitter. I also thought that we had a fairly healthy diet, until we started to look at the healthy `food pyramid'... The problem is that I thought lots of things - now I feel that I'm properly informed.
You have a choice in how the rest of your life goes, and it can be great. The rules are straightforward: Exercise hard and you will grow younger. Care about other people and you will grow happier. Build a life that you think means something and you will grow richer. (Harry)
There's a version for blokes and one for women (pink cover inevitably). My wife and I read them simultaneously and are started to make some of the changes together, which makes sense since we hope to get old and grow younger together.
Highly recommended... we'll see how it feels next year when I turn 50. Oh, and it's a good read too!
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". 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. Many excerpts are available for reading at the author's website.
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. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff to extend the life of your rotator cuff- studies show that after the age of sixty, 54% of people have a torn cuff.

It was a great message and OK read, but it could perhaps have been more concise and a little less repetitive. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
