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.

"Brain-rattling, irresistible, hilarious. If you're up for it...it could change your life." (The Washington Post)
"Younger Next Year is a wiscracking but scientifically serious guide to health." (Newsweek)
This is a subject that could be dry and pedantic, but Henry's & Chris' informed but friendly writing styles, and Don's and Rick's great narration make this book the most approachable advice book I've ever listened to. I plan to reread it yearly. It has already made a difference in my life, health, and attitude.
The book addresses physical health, both via exercise and diet, and many facets of emotional health (and its relation to our physical health) as we age. Sounds boring, right, or maybe even worse: guilt-inducing! But because of how it's presented, it is more Lil a conversation at a bar with an old friend than a lecture. Highly recommended.
No. Definitely not. I learned nothing from this book. Waste of time, and then there is one of the narrators...What an annoying person.
Which one is the overly annoying guy?
I wish I could get my money back
This is one of the most annoying books I've listened to. I like the technical pieces even though it's easy to find another point of view regarding the quantity of fruit, meat or bacon one should consume. Science continues to evolve. Bashing "diet" makes no sense when going on about what foods we should eat and ones we should avoid is by definition a diet.
Well written and well produced giving a good balance between scientific and personal experiences. Themes are quite similar to many other books and studies on healthy aging. Unlike some others, there's no commercial interests except helping people. Got the idea about reading this book from Bill Gates Charlie Rose show us he was going to file it
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.
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!
I'm out walking now....thanks to this book. It has put on a fresh perspective on aging. It's not so dreary as it been made out to be. Thank goodness!
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.
