Unavailable in any other format, this original audio companion to You: Staying Young expands on that number-one best seller's focus on breathing as a vital element of health and as a powerful tool in fighting a variety of vitality-sapping "major agers", and in maintaining optimal physical and emotional health. It also features the You Docs at their inspirational best as they motivate listeners to change the behaviors to keep them living longer and feeling young. Included is a series of exercises - some of which are outlined in You: Staying Young, and some of which have been developed exclusively for this program - that use music, pacing, and gentle vocal guidance on such popular topics as:

This is the first Oz book I've listened to and I found it interesting and helpful - will look for others. However, there's very little about breathing here, and the exercises are rudimentary - which is why I rate it low. If you're interested in a better breathing book, try Andrew Weils' Breathing: The Master Key to Self Healing on Audible.
This is a well thought out audio presented by two top professionals that can speak to the lay-person. A wonderful overview that doesn't bog us all down in more detail than we need. If more detail is required there is a pdf supplement. The second chapter is a well done exercise on relaxation and meditation, all part of the breathing process. Definitely a keeper.
The medical advice given in this audiobook is first rate and well-taken. However, based on the description and excerpt provided in This Is Audible, I expected it to focus on what the title indicates, namely, brathing, meditation and relaxation techniques. Unfortunately, less than half of the roughly two hours is devoted to this subject. Heed the advice, but find another guide for your meditation and breathing exercises.
