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.

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.

Must Read!

Great book! Im a personal trainer and nutrition coach and I loved this book. Working out isn't just for the young, its even more important the older we get! Lots of science balanced with funny stories and pep talks. I recommend this book to my clients and gave a copy to my mom for Mothers Day.
One of the authors refers a lot to evolution, which gets a little annoying after a while, but its good to know the science he bases his recommendations on. Some of the language and references are old fashioned, but the science is solid.
The readers did a great job of putting life into the words and conveying the personality of the writers.
