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.

    "Very enjoyable"

    I thought that the voice of Chris made the book much more interesting. I am going to listen to it a second time. One of my favorite books.

    "Great Book, Better Audiobook"

    I read Younger Next Year about 5 years ago and have followed quite a bit of it in my personal life. Work pressures did not have me on a good path, and this book was an inspiration to do better. I'm still not where I want to be, but I'm a lot better off because of this book.

    In January, I decided to revisit the book -- the audio version this time -- for some inspiration for the new year. The audiobook is even better than the paperback. The narration is really well done, and an example how the medium can actually enhance a publication.

    There are not very many books I have bought for friends and family, but this is one of them.

    "Simply the Best"

    This is my favorite out of about 50 non-fiction titles I have listened to in the last few years. I have actually started exercising everyday for the past four months as a result of listening. It may be a cliche, but this book has changed my life. I disagree with other reviewers that don't like the narration, the Chris Crowley narrator holds my interest and is fun for me to listen to. I am a clinical psychologist and have recommended the audio version to several patients.

    "BORING BORING BORING"

    For the life of me, I can't figure out why everyone loves this book! It was such a BORE to me that I didn't even want to listen to it during my dental work....the buzz of the drill was more exciting!
    As a 49 year old woman, I agree 100% with the basic premise of the book; however how many times do you have to hear "Exercise 6 days a week for an hour?" THERE IS NOTHING NEW IN THIS BOOK.

    "Life Changing Book!"

    I can't recommend this book enough. I think it's a life-changing book and perhaps one of the five most important books have ever read. Read it, and get it for those that you love.

    By the way, I have no affiliation with the author.

    "THE FUNDAMENTAL HEALTH BOOK!"

    All I can say is WOW! In these pages like the answers to the question I've been contemplating for years! What's going on! After almost 20 years of looking at people's healthy histories I've seen an exponential spiral of health out of control. My focus was always at diet, I gelt it was 70-80 % of the problem with exercise, sleep and toxic load bringing up the rear. boy did I get my stats all wrong. This amazing book covers all the basics of humanity.

    Get ready to LIVE!

    "A must read for any man or woman"

    I have listened to dozens of other books. These were by far the best readers of any. If you are thinking of reading this book, DON'T. Listen to it.

    "This Book Got Me To Understand "Why" I Need To Make Changes"

    There are thousands of book that will point out, usually correctly, the right way to live. This book explains why we have to live like that so anyone can understand. I'm 55 y/o. I will be no more than 54 next year. It is going to be hard but I feel confident it will be well worth it and I'll be 53 the year after.

    Henry and Chris did a wonderful job explaining the details and keeping me me interested. Thank you very much for doing this.
