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.

    "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.

    "Awesome"

    Awesome book with great concepts and well written. A most read for everyone who loves their life as it is under forty and even more important for those who don't. As for those over 40 this book will give them a roadmap for staying at that age for a long time to come at least functionally. Well done guys

    "Great stuff"

    Inspiring and full of information. Should be required reading for anyone 50 and above. And I found that listening to the audible version is actually better than reading the book - at least as far as motivation is concerned. I keep a copy of the book for reference...

    "Excellently written and Outstanding story read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Wow! Very fun to listen to. My friend read the book but he didn't get the gift of the read from the reader of the patient viewpoint. Hilarious writing but the reader was amazing in his delivery! Anyone will love this book!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Inspiring to exercise 6 times a week!

    "Good self help; great narration"

    This was a useful book explaining the 'why's' behind the lifestyle changes required to stay young.

    The narration was outstanding! Best of any book I have listened to this far.
