This book guides a person to prevent physical and mental decay during the aging process by exercising safely, eating properly, and being mentally fit. It provides guides to healthy behavior, and avoiding popular practices that are destructive. It is not a moral compass, but instead provides tips to body health. The book is easy to read. However, it does use fragmented sentence grammar, which does not improve its readability.
About This Item
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.

This book is easy to read, short, gets to the point quickly and provides lots of good advice. It is one of my favorite health and lifestyle guidebooks. You will be glad you bought a copy and you will be glad you read it. You will be even happier if you apply the advice that it gives to your own daily life.
Great tips on exercise...
Great tips on exercise and health in the last third of life. It wasn't til I was almost done with the book it became obvious that it was for men. But it was very readable with alternating chapters by the two authors. Recommend this for anyone retiring and/or over 60.
Another installment in...
Another installment in the Old Races universe, this one a single long "short story". Sarah's story. Which is as awesome as you would expect. Love the detail work on this one. Definitely a good read!
Theres nothing earths...
There's nothing earthshattering in this book, but it presents a fairly simple and practical method for pursuing good health, concentrating on men over 50 years of age.
