You: Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty | [Michael F. Roizen, Mehmet C. Oz]

You: Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty

Most people have the notion that once they reach 40 or so, a slow and steady decline of the mind, eyes, ears, joints, arteries, libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life begins to take effect. However, according to Drs. Roizen and Oz, that's a mistake.

Publisher's Summary

The body is the most fascinating machine ever created, and nobody talks about it in ways that are as illuminating and compelling as Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz do. In You: The Owner's Manual, they showed how the human body works in general, and in You: On a Diet, they explained how bodies lose weight and stay fit; both books have sold in the millions. Now, in You: Staying Young, the doctors talk about what happens as the body ages. As with their previous titles, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz have conducted tireless research and will introduce fascinating and crucial information in an unforgettable way.

Most people think of the aging of their bodies the same way they think of the aging of their cars: "As people get older, it's inevitable that they're going to break down; it could be in just a few ways or it could be in dozens of ways." Most people have the notion that once they reach 40 or so, a slow and steady decline of the mind, eyes, ears, joints, arteries, libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life begins to take effect.

However, according to Drs. Roizen and Oz, that's a mistake. Aging isn't a decline of the body's systems. It's actually very purposeful. The very systems and biological processes that cause people to age are actually designed to help people when they're a little bit younger.

So what's the role of those who are part of the aging population? To learn how these systems work, so they can be reprogrammed to work the way they did when they were younger. Listeners' goals should be to die young at any age. That means living a high quality of life (with everything from working joints to working genitals) until the day they die. The doctors' real goal isn't just to make people live longer; it's to allow them to maintain vibrancy throughout their entire lives.

    "good!"

    I really liked this book, but there is so much material to remember that it might be one where you need the hardcopy, too.

    "Get this Book"

    I loved listening to this book! In fact I liked it so much that I'm buying copies of the book to give to my family. There were a number of issues that concerned me, issues that took my mohter's life. After reading this book, I feel a lot better and have taken actions to correct my behavior.

    "A little over the top"

    The information in this book is good and important for healthy living. Some of it is what my mother taught me when I was growing up, but some of the science is helpful to learn about. Unfortunately, both authors go a little over the top with their use of metaphors and analogies in what feels like every sentence. Maybe in the book this works, but listening to it made me stop to try and understand how their analogy fit the topic. And while trying to figure it out, I would miss the next few sentences. It got annoying after a while. All in all, I'm still glad that I listened to the book.

    "Not suitable as audiobook"

    The book, although interesting, contains too many facts and figures that you would want to flip the pages back and forth to look out again. This is a bit frustrating in an audiobook.
