Publisher's Summary

Two of the world's leading experts explain the vital link between health and wealth that could add years to your life and dollars to your retirement savings.

All the money in the world doesn't mean a thing if we can't get out of bed. And the healthiest body in the world won't stay that way if we're frazzled about five figures' worth of debt.

Today show financial expert Jean Chatzky and the Cleveland Clinic's chief wellness officer, Dr. Michael Roizen, explain the vital connection between health and wealth - giving listeners all the tactics, strategies, and know-how to live longer, healthier, more lucrative lives.

The same principles that allow us to achieve better bodies will allow us to do the same for our investment portfolios. For instance, physical and financial stability comes down to the same equation: inflow versus outflow. Do we burn more calories than we ingest? Likewise, are we making more money than we spend?

The authors detail scientific ways to improve behavior so that the answers tilt in the listener's favor. They also offer ways to beat the system by automating how we do things and limiting our decisions in the face of too much food or too much debt.

Chatzky and Roizen provide a plan for both financial independence and biological strength with action steps to get you there.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Maybe the authors should let the pros read

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I believe it needs an editor who can influence the authors.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her delivery is sing songy - typical TODAY show style - great for a sound bite. His delivery is irrational word reading without communication.

Did AgeProof inspire you to do anything?

Keep looking for a book to teach modern budgeting to my child.

Any additional comments?

Unfortunate. Good information. Too much repetition. Ghastly delivery.

Good information

I didn't like the way the book went back and forth in the beginning. After listening further, it all came together very well. Great information, health, job, investments, life!

Life changing book

I loved this book and learned a number of things I will incorporate in my life starting today.
The authors are very knowledgeable and relatable.
My wife and I are about ten years from retirement and thankfully are already on the right path, but there are things we could be doing right now and for the next several years that will make our later life richer,
I think people of ANY age would benefit from this book; check it out !

So helpful!

You already KNOW this information but we aren’t doing it or doing it thoroughly enough, so it is so very useful to hear these two set out a plan we can all follow.

Only Written for Americans - Ignore the rest

What disappointed you about AgeProof?

The early chapters talk extensively about recording personal stats using an App (Google Play & App Store) but unless you are registered in the US - forget it

Has AgeProof turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

Not the narrator that the issue is with

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Too long, too much detail, delivery not great

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I didn't learn much that I didn't already know. I thought Dr. Roizen's nutritional information was outdated, although he did have good advice about exercise. Ms. Chatzky's information was more useful, but in a book like this, she should pick a lane- does she expect an audience who is new to the concept of a 401K plan or a more financially educated audience? The jumping around from basic to sophisticated information was tedious.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The second half of the book was better than the first. I would advise a listener to start the book about halfway through.

Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

Not even if I was paid to listen

Did AgeProof inspire you to do anything?

No - but it did confirm that I am doing several things right, which was nice

Any additional comments?

I wanted very much to like this book. Advice about good health habits connected to good wealth habits is a fascinating topic and a book like this could be inspiring. However, this book only offered off-the-shelf information in a manner that was intended to be accessible and non-intimidating, but felt condescending.

Good points

Some good points but lotsa dry material. They need someone else to read roizens part.
