It provides not just information,... but also a distinctive way of thinking about the health of aging men. This book does not just reproduce the same information that is available in similar guides, and it should be useful to both men and their families in addressing their health problems.
(Christian Perring Metapsychology
This book is the perfect gift for the man who seemingly has everything except maybe a handle on his own health... It’s a worthwhile investment in your male loved ones’ health and life. Husbands, sons and anyone else you love will be sure to benefit from the wisdom between these pages.
(Carol Higgins Taylor Bangor Daily News
A helpful, upbeat guide that covers major health problems, preventative care, and social and spiritual concerns that contribute to good health... A valuable resource for all middle-aged and older men.
Covers almost everything you need to know, but might be afraid to ask, about keeping fit mentally, physically, socially, intellectually and sexually through the decades.
(Wall Street Journal
An excellent, authoritative head-to-toe guide for men (40 years and older) who want to stay healthy. Much of the advice deals with long-term habits of diet, exercise, and relationships that younger men will benefit from changing before they lead to problems. This is also a good read for women who want to keep the men in their lives healthy.
While the book is packed with information, it is written for the layman, with charts and graphs to make things even easier to digest.
