Publisher's Summary

Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

Harry's Rules (Harry being Harry S. Lodge, M.D.) are only seven, but they completely reverse the typical path of aging. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life. Quit eating crap. Connect and commit. And to prove it is his star patient, the no-punches-pulled Chris Crowley, a 70-year-old who left the slippery slope of retirement and turned his life around. Harry tells you what to do. Chris tells you how. And their argument is irresistible.

You're a guy. You have responsibilities. You think about the future, the 401K, the kids' schools. There's one other thing you can't afford not to think about: yourself. Marrying science and reality, Younger Next Year is a convincing and passionate argument that if you train for the Next Third of life, you'll have a ball. Follow its simple rules and you'll find yourself in perhaps the best shape, in mind, body, and spirit, of your life.

    "enlightening and valuable"

    Despite the fact that this book is very deliberately directed at men, I found the information of great value and well presented. Too bad that there is a lot of "man to man" talk, which I found slightly embarrassing. Still, with grain of salt, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my female friends. Well worth the listen!

    "Awesome!!!"

    Believe it or not, I've purchased 30 of these CD sets. I found it to be that good. Basically, this series gives you the knowledge of how to get functionally younger at 50 for the next five years and maintain that level of fitness until your mid 80's.

    The information is clear and well explained.

    I bought so many sets because I gave them to people and made the CDs available in the church that I pastor.

    Highly advised that anyone interested in overall well being get this.

    "Compelling logic for exercise"

    One of the best books on fitness and health I've read. The authors discuss why we grow and why we decay -- has a lot to do with our precarious life on the open savanah in Africa. Exercise signals our primitive brain that it is time for the hunt -- build bone, build muscle, build circulatory capacity, get ready for action. Inactivity tells our primitive brain that winter is upon us -- slow down, eat a lot, shut down unnecessary functions, etc. So in evolutionary terms, our modern, sedentary life is constant "winter." The book is full of practical advice and is entertaining -- I think the combo of patient/physician is a great one.

    "Not Your Stereotypic Exercise & Diet Book"

    Crowley and Lodge should take this show on the road. They are that good!

    This is the best narration of helpful material I have experienced as an Audible subscriber.

    When humor and commonsense collide, learning takes place and I learned a lot from this listen. I espcially enjoyed the historical perspective of our ancestors strolling through the Savanah in Spring and how we can tap-into that energy in this hectic, stress-filled, super-sized 21st Century.

    In short, this is a powerful, motivating, entertaining, and interesting listen. It will make you laugh . . . and think . . . and take action.

    "Great ideas but written for MEN"
    Any additional comments?

    Disappointment. Some of the info and ideas could have easily applied to both men and women but the book was really written to appeal to and specifically for men. The tone and manner of the authors and narrators were 100% old boy. That should have been made clear in the review.

    "Sounds trite, but this book changed my life..."

    At 53, I lost 40 lbs...work out every day...feel 40 yrs old (or less)...stopped eating crap and look forward to every day. Read the book, it will change you, for the better.

    "Very Motivating and good for the rest of your Life"

    This was an informative and interesting listen. It motivated me because it gives you a purpose for making certain lifestyle changes, instead of just telling you what you should do. Everyone knows they should; but this book makes you realize WHY and what happens internally when you do the right things, for quality of life for your future physical and mental states. It gives you the motivation by explaining internal changes that take place if you do the right things. Chapters switch off between both the patient and a doctor, so you gain both perspectives. Geared towards middle aged men, but informative for anyone. I have now purchased the readable version of "Younger Next Year For Women" which was not available in an audible version. Just the same, the one for men "Younger Next Year" did motivate me with insight and new found purpose. I think all middle age guys and older should listen to this book!

    "started me on the right road"

    I am 41 years old and I absolutly loved this book. I have purchased 3 print copies which I have given away to friends (this is NOT someting I am prone to do) and they have all enjoyed it as well. I think the book is very well written and well read - I enjoyed both voices - although the person reading Chris's part does go over the top now and then. Remember, this is a book written in a "man to man" style - women - don't complain if it does not speak your language! Take a look at "younger next year for women" instead.

    "Life Changing"

    Fantastic book and well read. The readers really captured the spirit of the authors. The book itself is inspiring and really makes sense. The book presents some basic rules to live by and why they are important in a scientific and humorous way.
