I managed to get through this excellent book despite Chris Crowley's cheery, jocular, sometimes grating style because it is (a) full of useful information about staving off the optional deterioration of aging and (b) inspirational. Henry Lodge's medical chapters are very thorough though in some spots already outmoded, and Crowley's advice assumes a rather large disposable income (skiing, long-distance cycling on expensive bicycles, and master's athlete camps are not for those on a limited budget). I admit that as a master's athlete myself, I have spent an inordinate amount of my own salary on training, tournaments, and travel, but I know better than to expect everyone else to do it. I recommend the book if you have a high tolerance for peppy lecturing.

But seriously, "Old Fred?" Yeugh. ( )

An Important Book! Even though the old guy can get a bit much in his sections, this book should be a must-read for everyone (obviously men don't need the "for women" one) over, say, 50. The doctor's sections are fascinating with all the actual biological stuff about our 3 brains & just how the human body works & why. It's inspiring but is going to be hard to live up to. We must try!

I read this for a 4-week discussion group at my health club. The discussion group, led by a physical trainer (with one meeting also welcoming a registered dietitian) was much more worthy than the book itself. It was good to discuss highlights with, and bounce ideas off, each other. Too, I met another member with whom I seem to have quite a few shared interests—I've made a new friend!

The book itself was quite repetitive, and the main author comes off as quite a jerk. I concentrated on the chapters authored by his doctor, which primarily reinforced things I've read elsewhere or heard from my own doctors (good that they agree, anyway).

If you're interested in the subject, I'd recommend borrowing the book from the library [there's a version not specific to women, too, if you don't need the menopause chapter], reading the "rules" (I think there were six of them) on a single page in the appendix, and scanning the table of contents for sections that particularly interest you (and reading those). That is, skip most of the book.

The nutshell: exercise 6 days a week (4 cardio/2 strength) for the rest of your life; don't eat crap; have good relationships; engage in activities that interest you; be optimistic. I just saved you a few bucks and many hours. You're welcome! ( )

Overall Rating: DNF

First Thoughts: Younger Next Year for Women had a good message (mostly) but it was buried under joining a gym, skiing stories, swimming stories, and insulting terms that made me shut down the book!

Here is the parts that I really liked:
1: Exercise is key to adding years to your life.
2: Eating right makes your body perform better.
3: Knowing your heart rate during exercise will let you know how much you are pushing yourself.
4: Strength training for women is key to battling some women specific issues that come up post menopause.

Nothing earth-shattering but all good things to keep in mind. The rest (and I made 6 hours) was all chatter that was off-putting and buried the information. Overall I was not impressed. ( )

Recommended by my sister - I really enjoyed the down-to-earth real life language of this book. It inspires me to want to improve my health and full of useful information - one that I plan to revisit often. ( )
