Kurzbeschreibung

10. Oktober 2007
Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--"Younger Next Year" draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become "functionally younger every year" for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules." Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging. Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.

Pressestimmen

"One of our highest recommendations so far on growing old gracefully . . . Dr. Lodge, a prominent M.D., focuses on developments in cellular and evolutionary biology. Crowley, his guinea pig, is a firm believer in Dr. Lodge's science and very good at convincing the reader that, if you're a fifty-year-old man, you'd be an idiot not to start following the rules as soon as possible. . . . Should be read avidly by anyone growing older as well as forward-thinking youngsters." -- Kirkus Reports -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD .

Synopsis

Younger Next Year is for men who want to turn back their biological clocks. It explains how men can become functionally younger every year for years to come, and continue to live with vitality and grace into their eighties and beyond. Harry's Seven Rules - Harry being Henry S. Lodge, M.D. - can help to reverse the typical path of ageing. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life. Quit eating crap. Connect and commit. And to prove it works is his star patient, the no-punches-pulled Chris Crowley, a seventy-year-old who left the slippery slope of retirement and turned his life around. Harry tells you what to do. Chris shows you how. And their argument is irresistible. Marrying science and reality, Younger Next Year is a convincing and passionate argument that if you train for the Next Third of your life, you'll have a ball. Follow its simple rules and you'll find yourself in the best shape - in mind, body and spirit - of your life. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen How long can we really live? 5. Oktober 2007
Format:Taschenbuch
It is a very good book for anyone concerned about aging. We get more aware of our age at the time of retirement. Switching from a daily-work routine to a totally new idea of all-time-holidays is often not as pleasurable as we expected thirty or more years before. At that difficult time, it is very helpful to focus on the Four Pillars of Longevity as suggested by the authors of the book:

1. Six-times-a-week exercising.
2. Eating for nutrition, not for any other reason. Focusing on fruits and vegetables.
3. Avoiding boredom, developing your hobbies.
4. Connecting with many other people - creating a solid circle of friends.

The book provides some good medical background for these readers that like to understand why certain things are happening.

Another book well worth reading is "Can We Live 150 Years". It is the Body Maintenance Handbook, as the subtitle states. I like the common sense approach that is prevalent throughout the pages. Some of the author's ideas, for obvious reasons are similar to the ones presented by Crovley and Lodge, but on the whole it is a totally different book. Many excerpts are available for reading at the author's website.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr unterhaltsam 4. November 2013

Bisschen sehr amerikanisch, aber lesenswert. Der ganzheitliche Ansatz und vor allem die wissenschaftlichen Einsichten sind wirklich interessant. Unterhaltsamer Sprachduktus im NYC Stil.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Younger Is as Younger Does 5. Januar 2008
Von C.J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Of all the anti-aging books I've seen, this is one of most laid back and entertaining. It's written by two guys. Harry, the doctor, covers the science aspects of aging, while the other guy, Chris, talks about applying the info.

The book is centered around "Harry's Rules." These are seven rules for the reader to follow. They include such things as "Quit eating crap" or "Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life." While they might seem to be basic pieces of information, they are sound advice and have some science behind them.

All-in-all, I found this to be a very informative and amusing book and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a book on aging. The realistic key here is not to go into things thinking you're going to STOP the aging process, rather think of SLOWING DOWN the aging process. Aging readers may also find Bulletproof Your Shoulder helpful as 54% of people over the age of 60 get a torn rotator cuff.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What did you do with my husband? 14. Mai 2007
Von F. Clarke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been trying for years to get my husband interested in exercise and eating better. I gave him this book just before he went on a trip and he actually read it. He is now a changed person - he rides his bike regularly and purchased a heart monitor. This weekend he bought a set of weights and starting this week he is going to my personal trainer for three sessions to get a schedule he can follow at home. I saw him the other day rereading sections of the book. Nothing has worked to motivate him until he read this book! Thanks so much to the authors.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent primer for entering the last 3rd. 16. Januar 2005
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First of all, this book is funny and well written. The thing that really stood out for me in this book was that it gives you an accurate idea on what to expect from age 50 on. Being in my late 50s, I can see from personal experience that these authors know what they are talking about. Living in Las Vegas I see men with what we call in Las Vegas "buffet bellys" (huge gut) I seen old people so overweight and out of shape that the only pleasure they have left is gorging themselves at buffets. The science in this book makes very good sense. This book should be a "must read" for anyone entering their 50s-60s who is intrested in staying alive, possibly missing some of the scairest of the diseases and being able to have a sex life in their later years. I cant recommend the book enough for that age group of men and women. I meant to give this book 5 stars, but I cant seem to change the ratings

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable, readable, informative 6. Juli 2006
Von Steven J. Rickard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I saw this book in a local bookstore last winter, flipped through it, thought it looked interesting, and came on to Amazon to see what the reviews were saying. They were okay, not great, I had other things to read, so I decided to pass on this one. I ran across it at my local library a month ago, and decided to check it out. I'm glad I did. The book is written in a simple, conversational and very readable style and I learned a few things. Frankly, when I'm plowing through information on diet, nutrition and exercise, I prefer something friendly and easy to read.

Several reviewers complained that the book is basic, common sense information padded with a lot of "fluff." Well, sure. Why not? Americans obviously need basic, common sense information. Look at the way books giving inflated promises and ridiculous diet plans tend to fly off the shelves and garner rave reviews ... and those are nothing but fluff, nonsense and padding.

The "fluff" in this book entertained me (for the most part). Some of the manly-man bits about running down gazelles and eating them raw got a little old, but the basic message is one that most Americans need to take to heart: use it, or lose it. I watched both of my grandfathers become senile and old beyond their years. Both of them died in their seventies, miserable, angry and sick, and much of what ailed them could've been cured by diet and exercise. Instead, they chose to sit on the couch, watch TV, and complain about everything.

I'm 39 years old. I'm already noticing that when I pull a muscle or twist a joint, it takes much longer to heal than it did. My body has stopped growing, healing has slowed down, and now it's up to me to resist the pull of the tide. I can spend the next 40 or 50 years slowing down and puffing up, or I can be flat-bellied, trim, muscular and full of health for a long time. This book gives some good, basic, no-nonsense advice to achieving that end.

One negative reviewer griped that sure, he knows exercise is good for him, but that the authors don't touch on motivation and how to get yourself to stop eating pizza, get off the couch, and go for a run. Well, they do talk about that: "Suck it up and do your job." As a long-time sedentary person myself, I'm realizing that it's really the only thing I can do. There isn't a magic formula I can chant to make my morning bike ride more fun - it just takes doing it, whether I enjoy it or not, and eventually ... I'll begin to enjoy it. I took up snowboarding about four years ago at the age of 35. I hated it the first season, tolerated it the second season, enjoyed it the third, loved it the fourth, and now I can hardly wait to get onto the slopes. It does get easier, but you've got to force yourself out there at first. If you can't force yourself, then get a friend to help you. Make a bet. Sign up for a class. Do something. But at the very bottom of it all, you're still going to have to get off the overstuffed recliner and "just do it." I know, it sucks, but ultimately it's going to be worth it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I am in my 30s and I loved this book 14. Dezember 2006
Von Brosamj - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My dad gave me this book a few months ago. He gave it to all of his kids. I took and I kinda laughed, thinking, 'Oh man, why on earth would give me this book...live like you are 50 when you are 80? Yeah, thats gonna be helpful for me now. My dad is in terrific shape and he enjoyed reading the book and I decided to check it out.

Yes, the book is geared toward the older population but I was able to take A LOT from it and start using it now. Chris Crowley tackles the book from an older man that is using the tools to look and feel younger and to be healthier. Dr. Lodge discusses why if we do certain things, it will dramatically improve our health and in essence, slow down the aging process and make our latter years healthier and more enjoyable. There were several areas of discussion that I found very useful:

Exercise Now--I am able to continually make excuses about not exercising but they make a great point. Look at exercise as a job that you have to do 6 days a week. Not 3 days a week and not even 5 days a week. You have to do this at least 6 days every week. Its not always easy but it is great advice.

Stop the aging process--Your body wants to stay as young as it can and it has been recently with fast food, television, cars, etc. that people don't do things and don't go out and get exercise or walk around or just staying active. The human body has had to work hard for thousands and thousands of years...it is only the past 100 years where our body is not having to work and our bodies hate that. They want to be moving...they want to get worked out but we often inhibit that need by being lazy.

Older people--I have seen the differences. My dad is 73 and he is a complete machine. He plays tennis 2 days a week, he works out 3 other days and he does exercies for the other 2 days. You compare him to the majority of other people his age and to people 10 years younger and he looks better than 98% of them. That is because he is working out, eating well and enjoying life. My mother is getting on that bandwagon as well and is looking good.

How it affects me today--It has gotten me working toward improving my overall health. I am working out more and I am understand better a lot of what was taught in the book. I see what I want to look like in 20, 30 and 40 years and what I need to do to reach that.

Tone of the book--It initially irritated me in how they switch back and forth between chapters but I ended up looking forward to each new point of view (medical and common man) at the start of each chapter. It is effective. You get the science (Chris Crowley) and you get the common person (Dr. Lodge) talking about what he is doing to improve his health and his life. Crowley displays enthusiasm in what he is doing to improve his life and Dr. Lodge is able to bring the sciences down to a level that I could understand. I enjoyed the book and I see this as a book that can benefit those 50+ but can also be very beneficial for those well under 50.
