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.

    "Listen to this while you exercise!"

    A great way to motivate yourself to exercise EVERY DAY!!! I enjoyed the interaction of the cheerleader Chris and the technical Harry.

    "A MUST READ .... but you need purpose!!"

    This marvelous book just lacks one chapter to get people going: purpose.
    I happily and luckily figured out the rules on my own via common sense. In my experience, though, what made me get up and "just do it" was a redefinition of my purpose in life. The rest was "just" a consequence.
    Thank you to the authors!!!

    "Exercise"

    To sum it up, exercise at least one hour a day, six days a week and don't eat junk food. Darwinist propaganda.

    Story
    "Thought only for old people but I was wrong!"
    What made the experience of listening to Younger Next Year the most enjoyable?

    I loved the mix of narration from a Doctor and a Common man. And, it gives perspective of life of after 50 or 60 and motivates me to stick to a regular physical activity schedule from now at young age itself.


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

    You choose either decay or growth. Sedentary life causes decay not growth. Decay is caused by C6 throughout our life. Doing physical excercises causes a surge of C6 which leads to greater production of C10 which is essential for growth of new cells and to be younger next year. If you don't excercise and not feel pumped, your body is essentially decaying.

    "Great advice/ Keep on LIVING!"

    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.

    "What a major disappointment."
    Would you try another book from Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge and/or Don Leslie and Rick Adamson ?

    No. Definitely not. I learned nothing from this book. Waste of time, and then there is one of the narrators...What an annoying person.


    What about Don Leslie and Rick Adamson ’s performance did you like?

    Which one is the overly annoying guy?


    Could you see Younger Next Year being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Hell no


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could get my money back

    "Annoying mix of dated information."

    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 researched"

    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

    "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!
