This book is very readable with lots of valuable information on how the body works.

The question isn't whether or not you'll look into this title, but whether or not you'd prefer the audiobook edition.
Jonathan Esterman
I've read many books on this subject and this is by far the best written and most interesting book on aging.

First, let me spill the beans: while the title advertises a 17-day plan, it's actually a series of four 17 day plans -- each one designed to address certain issues associated with aging. After introducing some aging-related science, the author discusses our cultural expectations about aging, and then confronts them directly. Then we get the four anti-aging plans:

Cycle 1, Stop Your Aging Clock, covers the basics of aging, and sets up the basics for limiting its degenerative effects.

Cycle 2, Restore, focuses on heart, breath, and brain. Cycle 3, Refine, covers the issues of sexuality and masculinity.

Cycle 4, Renew, discusses detoxification and the relationship between healthy living and longevity.

Each cycle has a 17-day plan attached to it, designed to put the section's principles into action.

The material works out well. And it's certainly an excellent introduction to aging, as well as a practical guide to minimizing the harm aging can do. It's rather basic, and those really interested in digging in to the subject of longevity and anti-aging would do well to check out more in-depth books. But this is a great place to start.
Other titles likely to also be of interest:

>Get Fit in Bed: Tone Your Body & Calm Your Mind from the Comfort of Your Bed if you're looking to get in shape, but want or have to start gently.

Dr. Moreno does it again! After his trend setting blockbuster, the 17 Day Diet Book, he explains in both engaging and understandable terms the keys to avoid the effects of aging. I've read many books on this subject and this is by far the best written and most interesting book on aging. The 4-cycle plan, each cycle focusing on a different body system, is a must follow guide to keeping you healthy. His descriptions range from rebuilding and maintaining your joints, heart, gut, and brain. For many of us that have seen the effects of aging, this is a true treasure of information on how to feel and stay young. A must read for both your parents and your kids!

Over all I enjoyed reading this book since instead of giving advice it is written in an entertaining and informative way. I also appreciate the fact at the end of the book Dr. M. admits there is no way to stop aging but by having a healthy life style one can slow aging. Just like everything else in life just reading one book, this one or another, or making healthy choices for seventeen days is not going to change one's life. Like the author says staying healthy as one ages is a lot of work and commitment.

In spite of the fact it is well-written, there was nothing in the book I hadn't already known since I have been reading books like this for decades. However I was pleasantly surprised to see the author seems to know much more than most conventional doctors do about preventive medicine and nutrition.

Some of the things in the book I didn't care for:
The healthy weight chart doesn't seem realistic or healthy to me. For example: a 5' 2" woman is supposed to be 99-121 lbs. ( Please let's get real) and also please do your own research before taking any osteoporosis and cholesterol lowering drugs because you may not like what you find out.

And my major problem with this book is the chapter about hormones which is very brief and on the surface. When doctors or media mention hormones what they are referring is synthetic drugs with devastating effects such as dementia, stroke, heart disease, cancer and etc. On the other hand, bioidentical hormones are identical to the human hormones and prevent chronic disease. The book talks about the benefits of hormone replacement without mentioning it is bioidentical hormones beneficial not the synthetic drugs which are called "hormones" by doctors and drug companies.

I have his 17 Day Diet and Cookbooks, both of which are outstanding. This book fell short of expectations. It's filled with practical info, but not as good as his diet books.

The information was good, but I was looking for more than just the normal basic routine of exercise, food, etc...that is common sense for me...so maybe for those who need to hear that...I was looking for the more holistic tips...also didn't focus on skin, hair and nails at all from what I could gather unless I missed it...I listened to all in car. It definitely explains things in detail on how the body works

This book is very readable with lots of valuable information on how the body works. Don't think I could follow the 17 day plan but I enjoyed all of the author's ideas and can incorporate them into a healthier life style.
