Publisher's Summary

To mark the 15th anniversary of the best-selling series, Younger Next Year for Women now includes two new chapters on the link between physical exercise and brain health. Their message is straightforward: A program of consistent exercise and eating right not only helps us physically but improves memory, cognition, mood, and more.            

Which makes the promise of Younger Next Year for Women even more urgent than ever - the American population is getting older, living longer than ever, and wanting to stay strong, fit, sexy, and smart. This best-selling book shows us how to turn back our biological clocks - how to put off 70 percent of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance), eliminate 50 percent of serious illness and injury, and now, become 10 percent smarter. 

The key is found in Harry’s Rules, the linchpin of the Younger Next Year Philosophy: 

  • Exercise six days a week. 
  • Don’t eat crap. 
  • Connect and commit to others. 

There are seven rules altogether, based on 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, gives the just-as-essential motivation. And in the two new chapters, prominent neurologist Allan Hamilton explains how the program directly affects our brains - all the way down to the cellular level - while Crowley, in his inimitable voice, gives the personal side of the story.  

This book also includes important information on menopause, and includes an introduction by Gail Sheehy.             

The research is proving every day how and why Harry’s simple but life-changing rules work, improving the quality of our lives, physically and mentally. With an updated look, and new chapters specifically addressing brain health, Younger Next Year for Women is the essential listen for any woman 50 and over.

A must read for women of all ages

I found some of the narration a little old school… like a 1950’s health class public service announcement film… but the content is fantastic and fascinating. Super motivational for anyone seeking to stop feeling like crap and to feel better inside and out.

Recommended by my girlfriend Kathy

I listened to both editions and highly recommend re-reading or listening to the new 2nd edition. Since I was using my iPhone/iPad I easily added using the Audible in-app Notes. Yes there is some really good stuff here and I am following them from eating right to “exercise, care and connect” and they said.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS BOOK!!

Fantastic information, phenomenally read! They present robust scientific information and research findings in a real and humorous way that is easy to consume and delightful to employ. I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate this work. As a healthcare provider for 20+ years, I can attest to the reality of the reported consequences of following (and not following) recommendations and guidelines in this book.Highly recommend for anyone looking to improve their quality of life, physical health, mental outlook, productivity, etc. I am in my 40s, and I am implementing these recommendations and practices now to ensure joy and vitality in the decades ahead. So excited!

Enjoying last Third of your Life

This was such a breath of fresh air. A lot of what I have learned in my personal journey of four decades was checked off in this book. Highly recommend it. My husband got this book recommendation by his doctor after er went through a health scare. Now, we both are highly motivated and have already putting into practice what this book recommends. Little did I know that a sweet outcome of it would be closeness for us two. Please jump in and start enjoying your best life yet while getting younger each year.

Life Changing Information

I read Younger Next Year 2 years ago and it motivated me to pursue an active lifestyle. Since then, I have felt more energetic and strong than I have felt in my entire life! Younger this Year for Women is even better than the original book. It contains so many practical suggestions that I will continue to use daily.

great healthy advice

wish medical world approached health like this. Prevention is the key. I actually like his style but understand why some could be offput, still good information, as a nurse see results of lifestyle daily.
