You're coming into the peak of your life. And because youand#8217;re already more attuned to your physical and emotional needs, and more inclined to commit to a healthier lifestyle, you're poised to live brilliantly for the thirty-plus years after menopause. All you need now is the program outlined in Younger Next Year for Womenand#8212;which, for starters, will help you avoid literally 70 percent of the decay and eliminate 50 percent of the injuries and illnesses associated with getting older.

How? Drawn from disciplines as varied as evolutionary biology, cell physiology, experimental psychology and anthropology, the science behind Younger Next Yearis clear. Our bodies are programmed to do one of two things: either grow or decay. Sitting in front of a screen all day tells the body to decay. Taking a walk or doing yoga tells the body to grow. Loneliness and stress trigger decay; love and laughter trigger growth.

Just as clear as the science is the goal: Become the active gatekeeper of your own body and gain the power to control those signals of growth and decay. Seven simple rules show the way, from #1 Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life, to #6 Care, to #7 Connect and commit.

Theyand#8217;re called Harryand#8217;s Rules, named for the doctor and coauthorand#8212;Henry S. Lodge, M.D.and#8212;who formulated them, and who explains the precise science behind each one. But since itand#8217;s one thing to know somethingand#8217;s good for you and quite another to put it into practice, Dr. Lodge, the scientist, is joined by Chris Crowleyand#8212;coauthor, exhorter and living exampleand#8212;whose brusque charm and infectious enthusiasm will actually have you living by the rules. So, congratulations. Youand#8217;re now about to get younger.

Review:

"Crowley and Lodge rework their bestselling Younger Next Year (which targeted men) to address health and aging concerns for women. Former attorney Crowley's chatty voice alternates with internist-gerontologist Lodge's straightforward medical perspective. The authors promise that major lifestyle changes, including a six-days-a-week exercise regime, and a positive view of aging will make the 'next third' of life — the stage after menopause — the most fulfilling. Because women live longer, are highly motivated for change and fear aging less than men do, the authors contend, they will reap great benefits from the program. Crowley and Lodge put their own spin on commonsense health essentials, with Lodge adding information on the latest antiaging breakthroughs. A variety of activities (biking, skiing, sailing, yoga) will likely make the intensive exercise plan more enjoyable. Although there is little new material, women may find the 71-year-old Crowley's cheerleading appealing — the old buddy tone of the previous edition is exchanged for that of a male 'girlfriend' — and a great motivator not only for making lifestyle changes but for equating health with how one feels, not how one looks." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The bestselling "Younger Next Year," which deals with men and aging, is now available in an edition aimed at the female population. Covering menopause, postmenopause, cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and many other topics, "Younger Next Year for Women" adapts the authors' simple, lifesaving rules--Exercise Six Days a Week, Don't Eat Crap, Connect with Other People--to contemporary women's lifestyles.

Synopsis:

Now, a women’s edition. A New York Times bestseller with 115,000 copies in print in hardcover, Younger Next Year is the breakthrough program for men to turn back their biological clocks and live healthier, more active lives into their 80s and beyond. Experts believed, the press raved:

“An extraordinary book. It is easy to read and the science is right.” —K. Craig Kent, M.D., chief of vascular surgery, New York–Presbyterian Hospital

“Brain-rattling, irresistible, hilarious . . . it could change your life.”—Washington Post

But the fact is that women have even more to gain from Younger Next Year. Just as the average woman lives longer (three decades past menopause) than the average man, the average woman has more anxiety about aging. Younger Next Year for Women is a book of hope. Though keeping the same lively, alternating voices—Chris Crowley’s rough-and-ready passion for the cause, Harry Lodge’s cool, convincing science—the book is recast to bring its revolutionary findings about staving off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging specifically to women. It covers menopause and postmenopause at length, cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, even finances. It adapts its simple, lifesaving motivational rules—Exercise Six Days a Week, Don’t Eat Crap, Connect to Other People—to contemporary women’s lifestyles. And brings to its message a refreshing bluntness that says yes, you have come a long way, and you’ve got a longer way to go. Now enjoy it for all it’s worth.

Synopsis:

Co-written by one of the country's most prominent internists, Dr. Henry "Harry" Lodge, and his star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley, Younger Next Year for Women is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. This is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. Using the same inspired structure of alternating voices, Chris and Harry have recast material specifically for women, who already live longer and take better care of themselves than men. New material covers menopause and post-menopause, as well as cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and more.

This is the book that can show us how to turn back our biological clocks—how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry's Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work—and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation.

Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

Synopsis:

Smart women don't grow older. They grow younger. A book of hope, Younger Next Year for Women shows you how to become functionally younger for the next five to ten years, and continue to live thereafter with newfound vitality. How to avoid 70 percent of the normal problems of aging and eliminate 50 percent of illness and injury. And how to live brilliantly for the three decades or more after menopause. The key is found in Harry's Rules, a program of exercise, diet, and maintaining emotional connections that will be natural for you, as a woman, to implement. And the results will be amazing.

Lili, November 15, 2006 (view all comments by Lili)
Like millions of Americans out there, I spend way too much time in traffic. This makes me a huge fan of the radio! I was already familiar with the paper version of ?Younger Next Year for Women?, so when I discovered the audio version I had to snag it off the shelf ? it was a great investment that has certainly helped me through rush hour! Norman Dietz does a great job of keeping it interesting with his engaging narrative style.

The lifestyle plan offered in this audio is a great way to reach optimal physical health and my exercise routine has never been better. For this I am grateful. However, I feel that this method leaves out a critical factor in reaching a healthier lifestyle ? mental fitness. Most people do not realize that working out your brain is essential to overall health. I use services like Agogus.com where I can enhance my mental fitness via brain exercises and stimulating knowledge reports. I belong to two gyms ? one for the body and one for the mind ? and this is the only sure way to reach health and happiness!
