Production value only fair, but good affordable (supplements are still expensive) recommendations in his 9 part Synergy Matrix. Recommended
The book is filled with pretty much cutting edge information that you probably won't get from your doctor. It is excellent information if you want to be healthier and are willing to put forth the effort, energy and expense. The book is read by the author and doesn't have the polished presentation that a professional reader might give it but the author's enthusiasm does come through and overall the presentation is good enough that it doesn't detract but doesn't add anything either. Where the audio book really falls short is in the presentation of the technical information. The real "meat" of the book is a long list of supplements , dosages, manufactures, costs and time schedules. This is great information and so few authors ever get into real specifics. It is the specificity of this information that is so meaningful. This is not information that you can just remember so you need to take extensive notes. But trying to listen and write is difficult at best. I found myself having to going back several times to get the information down and was not sure of the spelling nor the dosages. The book needs an additional PDF file. Without the addition of a PDF file I would recommend purchasing the book in a print format and save yourself the aggravation.
The information provided was easy to understand and thoughtfully researched.
His medical expertise.
People remain interested in anti-aging. The vitamin and supplement industry is a several billion dollar industry developed primarily from discretionary spending.
I had a good review for the subject of aging through my listening to "Growing Young".. I have an earlier personal positive experience regarding the chapter on diet.. I can say: it is mostly true! Of course I do support the recommendations on taking vitamin D3 supplements, fish oil and tumeric .. I would, however, seek further evidences before trying on the rest of the the rest of the recommendations (though appealing!) despite their strong and consistent scientific discussions that were provided in this book..
I do recommend the book or its audio version for those caring for their health from the inevitable aging!
