Co-written by one of the country's most prominent internists, Dr. Henry "Harry" Lodge, and his star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley, Younger Next Year for Women is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. This is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. Using the same inspired structure of alternating voices, Chris and Harry have recast material specifically for women, who already live longer and take better care of themselves than men. New material covers menopause and post-menopause, as well as cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and more. This is the book that can show us how to turn back our biological clocks -- how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry's Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work -- and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation. Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

Great book; I'm going to buy it. A reread every few months would be a good idea.

Excellent book!! Really for any age as it teaches the whole reason as to why we humans, at any age, NEED to exercise and eat right. I don't believe there needs to be an age restriction because of this. I think Chris is ok, he goes on quite a bit and basically elaborates on what Henry is talking about and Chris's own experiences and a bit rude at times IMHO but Dr Henry has excellent biological reasons and answers to the whys and hows of the body's needs. Absolutely worth the read. North America is SO under-educated with their own bodies it is so sad.

The best rationale I've read yet about why it's so important to do an hour of aerobic and weight-bearing exercise every day. The doctor explains the physiology of why doing these exercises help the body to repair itself as we age. This couch potato is finally getting off the couch!

I ended up buying this book. It's full of good advice and if you feel yourself slipping I find that it gets you fired up again. It's inspiring and a good motivator; at least for this 55+ woman. The Doctor can get a bit dry at times but Chris is fun.

I find this book very interesting. I like both the sense of humor used by Chris and the more scientific point of view of Harry. It is entertaining, informative, and motivating. I laughed until I cried at Chris' description of his first time at spinning class. Who wouldn't be motivated after reading the chapter that tells you even though you may pass a stress test and you think you feel fine you probably are building up plaque, the description of what happens if it builds too much and cracks (a heart attack or stroke), and then what you CAN DO to keep that from happening. It is in YOUR OWN hands to change things. It is exciting to think that you can change a lot of what aging does to us--not the way we look on the outside, but on the inside, which is what really counts. I have read a lot of books about exercise, but I think this has made the most impact. It's not about how you look on the outside. It's about what physically and chemically happens inside your body and how exercise keeps you younger. Best of all--it's doable!! Everyone over 45 (or even younger) should read this book.
