Publisher's Summary

Most people think that beauty revolves around such things as lipstick, sweet eyes, or skinny jeans -- all those things that we can see (and obsess over) in the mirror. But the fact is that beauty isn't some superficial pursuit, and it's not some random act that you can thank (or curse) your ancestors for.

There are, in fact, scientific standards to beauty. Beauty is purposeful, because it's how humans have historically communicated who we are to potential mates. Beauty, in fact, is really about your health and happiness.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Michael F. Roizen and Dr. Mehmet C. Oz bust the myths and stereotypes about the way we view ourselves -- and how we define beauty. In these pages, you'll find out why beauty isn't as much about your vanity as it is about your humanity. The doctors take a scientific, informative, and entertaining look at the three levels of beauty and explain how they all work together to form a complete and authentic YOU.

You'll start off by taking the ultra-revealing and validated YOU-Q Test to help you assess where you are on your own beauty scale and where you want to be. Take the test, see how well you do; then use the book to help you improve your score.

With their usual candor and honesty, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz break down the mechanics of beauty and explain how little adjustments in your routine can help you become a happier, healthier person. You will learn about the biology of beauty, take YOU Tests to determine where you are on the beauty scale, get tons of YOU Tips to help you improve your life, as well as learn the secrets of the Ultimate Beautiful Day.

Everything that isn't good enough about you

Is there anything you would change about this book?

When a man with a pronounced Elmer Fudd speech impediment tells me I should get a boob-job if I have small breasts in order to improve myself and "be beautiful", I'm walking away and not looking back.
That was the last straw, of MANY straws......

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz again?

No

Any additional comments?

Don't listen to them girls. Just be entirely, originally, yourself, as you are.

If you like Dr. Oz you'll like it.

Would you listen to YOU again? Why?

yes....has lots of facts hard to take them all in on first listen

Any additional comments?

It was fine, I've listened to almost all of the You books. They are all a little cheesy but worth listening too...just wish Oz would electronically update my version and others with new medical facts....

Very Interesting Book

Would you listen to YOU again? Why?

It told me things that I didn't know.

What did you like best about this story?

It was very factual, without being redunduant.

What does Michael F. Roizen, Mehmet C. Oz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I was reading alongside with my Ereader.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't cry, but I should have. It is terrible what I'm doing to my body.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the book very much!
