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.

"Younger Next Year is a wiscracking but scientifically serious guide to health." (Newsweek)
Ce que les auditeurs disent de Younger Next Year
Believe it or not, I've purchased 30 of these CD sets. I found it to be that good. Basically, this series gives you the knowledge of how to get functionally younger at 50 for the next five years and maintain that level of fitness until your mid 80's.
The information is clear and well explained.
I bought so many sets because I gave them to people and made the CDs available in the church that I pastor.
Highly advised that anyone interested in overall well being get this.

Good info in a too-long format
This is very good, if fairly commonly understood, information and the presentation (swtching from a doctor to a "patient") is appropriate and effective. However, the majority of the advice is stuff that's generally well known to folks these days but less generally followed. And I suspect that the same material could be just as effectively communicated in 1/4 to 1/3 the space. It would be helpful to have a very brief summary and, perhaps, a "worksheet" to readilly consult. Have listened to (and not read) the book, it would be necessary for the listener to take notes (which is impractical if listening while driving, as I did).

I am a 43 year old physician and I found this book to be very informative, educational and motivational. I am recommending it to all of my friends and some patients. I am only giving it 3 stars because of the painful over the top reading of the parts for Chris Crowley. This book has co-authors and the person reading the Chris Crowley parts is so painful to listen to that I bought the book so I could read his portions of the book. The reader for Mr. Crowley is overly dramatic and ruined HIS portions of this book for me. However if you can get through the book, you will do yourself a big favor. The results are amazing.

Not Your Stereotypic Exercise & Diet Book
Crowley and Lodge should take this show on the road. They are that good!
This is the best narration of helpful material I have experienced as an Audible subscriber.
When humor and commonsense collide, learning takes place and I learned a lot from this listen. I espcially enjoyed the historical perspective of our ancestors strolling through the Savanah in Spring and how we can tap-into that energy in this hectic, stress-filled, super-sized 21st Century.
In short, this is a powerful, motivating, entertaining, and interesting listen. It will make you laugh . . . and think . . . and take action.

enlightening and valuable
Despite the fact that this book is very deliberately directed at men, I found the information of great value and well presented. Too bad that there is a lot of "man to man" talk, which I found slightly embarrassing. Still, with grain of salt, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my female friends. Well worth the listen!

Compelling logic for exercise
One of the best books on fitness and health I've read. The authors discuss why we grow and why we decay -- has a lot to do with our precarious life on the open savanah in Africa. Exercise signals our primitive brain that it is time for the hunt -- build bone, build muscle, build circulatory capacity, get ready for action. Inactivity tells our primitive brain that winter is upon us -- slow down, eat a lot, shut down unnecessary functions, etc. So in evolutionary terms, our modern, sedentary life is constant "winter." The book is full of practical advice and is entertaining -- I think the combo of patient/physician is a great one.

I can't wait to get to the gym!
I'm a 51 year old woman and found it extremely motivational. I have gone to the gym for most of my life and this book helped me understand why heart rate, nutrition and good relationships are so important.
I have also changed up my routine since reading the book and I am having better results for my age.
Chris's language is a bit gritty, but I'm sure you men will appreciate that. I do wish there was more for women in it.

And Funny too! I am a 54 year old woman. I've been working out about 6 days a week .. every week since I was 21....so as the book says I don't look 54. But I have been suffering from burn out the last few years. Over 30 years of going to the gym...can't I catch a break? This book got me excited again. It provided me with reasons to keep going and I loved his naration. I found it well written, funny, and I intend to listen to it again as soon as I finish.
