Younger Next Year: A Guide to Living Like 50 Until You're 80 and Beyond
Chris Crowley
0761134239
December 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Believing they have a unique approach for improving men's lives, Crowley, a former litigator, and Lodge, a board-certified internist, collaborated to write this "evolutionary" health program. The authors base their plan on the idea that instead of looking forward to decades of pain as the body slowly deteriorates, it's possible to live as if you were 50, maybe even younger, for the rest of your life. Yet with the exception of "Harry's First Rule"—exercise at least six days a week—there isn't much that's new or groundbreaking in their agenda. Most recommendations fall under the "common sense" umbrella, though these suggestions may be news to many men, who aren't as steeped in the world of health and fitness as most women are (they may find the chapters dealing with nutrition and biology particularly...


The Sexy Years
Suzanne Somers
1400081572
Mar 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Menopause is a complicated business. Medical issues vary widely and treatment options seem endless--especially in the wake of bad news about hormone replacement. While The Sexy Years isn't meant to supply you with a specific program of daily supplements, Suzanne Somers does offer an excellent inspiration to march forth and take control of this stage of health. Much of the book covers her own experience of menopause, including some detail on her breast cancer ordeal. She advocates the use of natural, bioidentical hormonal replacement, available through a variety of creams and supplements--it's a rare page that doesn't gush about the power of these substances or raise negative issues about the use of synthetic hormones. Introductory medical information is included on how estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone work together...


Living Large : A Big Man's Ideas on Weight, Success, and Acceptance
Michael S. Berman, Laurence Shames
159486277X
March 7, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Berman, a political strategist, is a "fat man," having weighed as much as 332 pounds, and as little as 217. He is also a self-proclaimed happy man; content with his life, at peace with his weight and itching to let the world know how he got to this place of equanimity. Berman tells a familiar tale of being a big kid forced by his mother to clean his plate lest children overseas go hungry. As he balloons, his parents react by picking on him for his weight. Shunned at home and laughed at in the gym locker room, Berman feels an ever-escalating crush of humiliation and self-loathing. While chronicling his numerous attempts to diet, Berman doles out shopworn wisdom and dubious insight gained in doctors' offices, gyms and "fat farms" from coast to coast. His tone is heartfelt and genuinely self-effacing, yet Berman...

Younger Next Year for Women
Chris Crowley
0761140735
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
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,...

Men's Health the Book of Muscle
Lou Schuler
1579547699
Oct 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
You might think that the subtitle, "The World's Most Authoritative Guide to Building Your Body," is hyperbole, but The Book of Muscle from Men's Health delivers as promised. Australian strength coach and former powerlifting champion Ian King and Men's Health fitness director Lou Schuler cover everything you want to know about your muscles and what makes them grow, complete with dietary recommendations, exercises for every muscle group, and exercise routines.

A section on workout routines helps you put together your own program, from beginner to advanced.

Schuler's guy-talk style makes the book enjoyable to read, even on days when you have no intention of going to the gym....



Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman
Jamie Reidy
0740750399
March 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Jamie Reidy is to the pharmaceutical business what Jerry Maguire was to professional sports and Frank Abagnale (Catch Me If You Can) was to bank fraud. He's the guy who's been there, done that, and walked away with the insider stories. You'll find yourself rooting for Reidy and at the same time, you'll be shocked by the realities of the world that paid his salary. Hard Sell is a witty exposé of an industry that touches nearly everyone in contemporary America. It reveals the questionable practices of drug reps, nurses, and even physicians. Reidy traces his ups and downs as a rep for giant drug manufacturer Pfizer, maker of some of the most widely prescribed and used drugs in existence, including Viagra. With equal parts self-confidence and self-mockery, Reidy tells it like it is in the drug-selling trenches that...

The Perricone Weight-Loss Diet: A Simple 3-Part Program to Lose the Fat, the Wrinkles, and the Years
Nicholas Perricone
0345485939
September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In The Perricone Weight-loss Diet, the father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging reveals the role of internal micro-inflammations, caused mainly by additive-packed foods and a sedentary lifestyle, not only in accelerated aging, but also in unwanted weight gain. The good news he shares is: it is possible to slow down the clock, clear the skin, and shed the pounds by following a diet of whole foods and natural supplements, and by progressively adopting an "anti-inflammatory lifestyle", including quality sleep and stress-reducing activities (pet lovers will especially appreciate the passage on the healing power of pets.)

If Dr. Perricone’s division of high- versus low-glycemic index foods, and healthy (Omega-3-rich) versus unhealthy fats, doesn't especially sound like breakout news, he has to be credited for his uniquely...


The Evolution Diet : What and How We Were Designed to Eat
Joseph Stephen Breese Morse
1600200389
February 23, 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
For 2 million years, humans evolved to eat a certain way: in the hunter/gatherer style, which consists of snacking on plant foods while roaming around before hunting and consequently filling themselves with animal meat. For the last few thousand years, however, our culture has forced us into a diet that is contrary to this. As a result, it is increasingly difficult to eat the way we were designed to eat. JSB Morse's Evolution Diet explores this modern problem and how to adjust our diet to fix it. In the book, you'll find a thoughtful, often funny, survey of the makeup of the human body, contributing factors to our diet (such as culture), and an easy-to-grasp explanation of what exactly we should eat. You'll also find over 50 recipes for tasty Evolution Diet foods. This book will help you become the healthy and happy...

Real Boys' Workbook
William S. Pollack
0375755268
May 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Dr. William Pollack, clinical psychologist and bestselling author of Real Boys and Real Boys' Voices, continues his fight against dangerous gender stereotypes with this essential, satisfyingly hefty volume for parents, teachers, and coaches of boys. He aims to crack the "boy code" (basically, society's unfair assumption that boys are testosterone-driven animals who must convey machismo at all costs) by getting readers to reflect on their own thoughts, feelings, and habitual responses. Designed to stand on its own, Real Boys Workbook revisits material covered in Pollack's other books: spot-on anecdotes about boys and their parents, boys suppressing emotions, boys and sports, plus a humbling dose of smart suggestions for using empathy, shared activities, and respect to nurture their loving qualities. In addition, it provides...

Dr. Patrick Walsh's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer
Patrick C. Walsh
0446679143
Jan 2001
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Walsh, professor of urology at Johns Hopkins University, and Worthington, a medical writer, offer a thorough guide to one of the most frightening diseases for men. Starting with an explanation of how the prostrate works surprisingly, it's not an essential organ Walsh then discusses why prostate cancer is prevalent in the U.S. and other developed Western countries, but not in Asia. He also detail the reasons men develop prostate cancer, including age, race, family history and diet. The book describes a variety of symptoms, some of which indicate ailments other than cancer, and what steps should be taken to get a proper diagnosis. Complete with diagrams and charts detailing the results of biopsy, the book provides an exceptionally complete (albeit worrisome, for squeamish readers) overview of the disease. Many of...

Hardcover

Book Description
"From childhood onward, men appear to be at risk. Infant males are more likely to undergo complications during labor and delivery and to have more birth defects. Boys often manifest behavioral difficulties and learning disabilities in elementary school. By eighth grade, boys are only half as likely as girls to aspire to be a professional or career person; boys are nine times more likely to suffer from hyperactivity and more than twice as likely to be suspended from school. Men are less likely to attend college and/or graduate school than women. Compared to young women, young men are four times more likely to be victims of homicide and five times more likely to kill themselves.

"Men suffer under a code of masculinity that requires them to be: aggressive, dominant, achievement oriented, competitive, rigidly...



Dr. Peter Scardino's Prostate Book
Peter T. Scardino
1583332200
Apr 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Many men have a dreaded fear of prostate problems that prevents them from seeking help. In response to that approach, Scardino, a practicing urologist at Manhattan's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, quotes Joe Torre regarding his own experience with prostate cancer: "When you get the information, the fear just sort of melts away." This book should diminish many fears with its straightforward, three-part presentation. Part One introduces the normal prostate and its function. Part Two presents common prostate problems that more than half of all men will face: prostatitis and an enlarged prostate. Part Three, the most comprehensive section, presents all that's presently known about prostate cancer (prostate tumors account for one-third of all internal cancers diagnosed in men). In simple, concise prose,...

The Gay Men's Wellness Guide
Robert E. Penn, National Lesbian and Gay Health Association
0805047719
December 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In the past decade gay men have been deluged with books about AIDS, safe sex, and HIV prevention. And while many of these books have been useful, their emphasis on AIDS often precluded discussion of other aspects of physical and mental health. There are many specifically gay male health issues that are never discussed in health books written for the general public, from the pleasures and pitfalls of anal sex to living in a subculture that emphasizes the idealized body to dealing with the homophobia that confronts gay people every day. Robert E. Penn, under the auspices of the National Lesbian and Gay Health Association, has written a complete guide to gay male health that, along with supplying complete information on HIV and AIDS, deals with nutrition, aging, common physical ailments, abuse issues, body building, and...


New Passages

Jan 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
The author's previous blockbuster, Passages (LJ 5/15/76), introduced us all to the term "midlife crisis." In this sequel, Sheehy takes us beyond the midlife crisis to examine later life stages, with a short update on young adulthood in the 1990s. In a few ways, this is a better book than its predecessor. Sheehy pays closer attention to the influence of history on the life course of individuals. She also addresses the main criticism that social scientists have made of her work?that large-scale studies have shown no evidence that most people go through the life stages that she describes?by explaining that people should go through these "passages" and that everyone who doesn't is "walking dead." These improvements aside, her prose still sounds like that of a second-rate astrologer, her advice is often contradictory,...

Book Review
With such chapter headings as "Under the Hood," "Yielding the Right of Way: Consent," and "Avoiding Hazardous Conditions: STDs," Mavis Jukes's Guy Book offers friendly, accurate, and up-to-date advice for prepubescent and adolescent boys. Covering a range of topics, from masturbation to decoding girls' signals to making that earth-shattering choice between boxers and briefs, this wise collection of information and how-tos will appeal to the testosterone-ridden boy who would sooner die than ask his mom or one of his buddies about spontaneous erections or confusing emotions. On the other hand, Jukes encourages readers throughout to talk to friends and caring, responsible adults, and offers guy-appropriate lingo and tips to help facilitate tough situations. On breaking up with a girl: "Breaking up on a Saturday...
