I enjoyed the author's other books, but this one disappoints. What is mostly lacking is a critical eye to what's included--you get the sense that in order to reach his 150 item quota, the author's included a lot of dubious treatments and approaches without researching them very carefully (e.g., weight lifting supplements that have been shown to have serious side effectss (even the guys on "t-nation" stopped taking them), hormone replacement for men, the "subluxation" concept that used to be prevalent in chiropractic medicine, but has been abandoned by most ethical chiropracters).

And while the breezy writing style is still sometimes fun, there's a bit too much name dropping (and promotion of friends' businesses). Overall, what comes through is a rushed effort to crank out another best-seller.

To go through life full of energy, with an optimistic mindset is something we all want. This book by Dr Jonny Bowden gives you 150 strategies to get more energy into your life. I enjoyed several of Bowden's other books because they are well written, in language you and I can understand, he makes clear why certain foods, supplements, etc will or will not work for you. This certainly applies to this book. Above all his books are fun to read because he has a nice sense of humour. The book is printed on durable paper, has some nice illustrations and an excellent lay-out.
The strategies included in the book include foods and supplements you can take, this information takes up about half of the book. There are shorter sections about exercise, improving your sleep, organizing your living space and how to detoxify your body.
Most of the information has a basis in science, with some small excursions into subjects like acupuncture and Feng Shui. All in all this is an excellent and up-to-date guide for anyone interested in health and fitness.

Format: Paperback
Doctor Jonny gives sage advise, and a myriad of Jonny fans write puff pieces to his eternal wisdom and energetic good looks.

The advise Jonny gives is wildly contradicting in spots. (Why do none of the other reviewers pick this up?!) He pumps out advice on nutritional supplementation as quickly as a late night exercise program pumps out energetic promises. The advice may be good in places but this type of "150 ways to boost energy" is geared for an author to overstep science and understep where caution for certain individuals are concerned.

True, this is true for many other authors too, but there is little reason (besides money) for Jonny Bowden to write such a book at this point. It makes his earlier works suspect. Or so it seems to me.

Should the book be given two stars for the bits of advice which are good and well written? I think that most people will read this and glaze over reading how THIS nutritional supplement will do x for you.... and how "some new research suggests" that this other nutritional supplement will do the same thing... and how "there is more evidence" that XYZ will do these things... and (times 150).

Most simply won't have the background to know what is a good approach to take.

Books like this make a lot of money, and get people in trouble as they experiment. People then go to their doctors with "ringing in their ears," with irritable bowel and worse, with headaches that won't stop... and these self-experimenters admit to trying this new regimen of high dosage mega-cure-all pills and potions. But with that warning, see a well schooled MD with lots of dietary background (most have virtually none, and dieticians are more political action groups touting pseudo-science than you would care to believe, go and get solid advice from a good medical doctor who understands nutrition, and there are some things that can help with energy, especially for Baby Boomers who are fueling this craze.

This review will be in list-form just like the book
-Contains vivid quality photography, which is an important component for me in such health books
-The numbered sections (150) allows easy skimming and fast reading
- each effective energy booster contains detailed information backed up with medical findings and written in a fluid conversational manner that is enjoyable to read.
-The tips can be done immediately. Bowden offers specifics on activities and for what kinds of foods to eat, and where to get them.

Excellent book, since I've started reading it I haven't been able to stop. It's a reference guide, you don't have to read the chapters in order, the information is presented in an informal language yet very accurated. Many easy tips to follow and encouraging ways to get more energized and achieve your goals of a better and healthier life.

Since my daughter is an athlete, and I'm a busy mother and artist, I needed a healthy way to boost our energy level besides downing coffee and energy bars. Not enough time has passed to see whether his suggestions are on the mark, but I find the book easy to read, engaging and informative. In fact, when I'm tired, that's the one book that I will not fall asleep with while reading. The suggestions are doable within my schedule. I don't really need to go to exotic health food stores to find energy food. I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased his other, "The Healthiest Meal on Earth."

This is one of the best books I have read on over all fitness and
increasing your energy level. Easy to read, good information,
makes a lot of sense. We some how think we can abuse our bodies,
eat junk food, don't exercise, and still think we should feel energized
all the time. This book explains how you can feel good and live
a healthy, energized life.
