I qualify this rating by saying I have been for the last 6 months a "beta tester" of this program and read the pre-publication manuscript! But I must say its a terrific read, entertaining and educational. Chris Crowley does humorously inspire you to get moving and keep at it and Jen backs it up with all the scientific knowledge to assure you that you are on the right track. My goal was 15 lbs and I met that goal, feel terrific and the program really has become a part of my life. At 63, I will continue on this lifestyle change with a goal of losing 10 more pounds and aging with enthusiasm!

I just received this book today. I've read Younger Next Year, and I think that the books in this series are very good. The co-authors of THINNER THIS YEAR bring complementary skills to this project. Unfortunately the formatting of the book makes it difficult to read and follow. I went back to the table of contents to read through it several times just to remind myself what I was supposed to be learning from the chapters. In a non-fiction book like this, it would be useful to have formatting features which make the organization and main points of the book clear. This book needs bullets, lists, side-bars and shaded sections. The content is A+; the formatting is D-.

This book picks up where "Younger Next Year" leaves off. Where "YNY" educates you on why you need to workout and eat properly, "Thinner This Year" tells you how to workout and what you should be eating. You can spend a lot of money on personal trainers and classes. Or, you spend less than $40 bucks on this book. Besides, reading anything from Crowley is worth the price.

I thoroughly enjoyed Younger Next Year, so I got the Younger Next Year for Women....which was OK but repeated a lot of info and stories from the first book. Then I ordered this one. Chris, as usual, is funny. The book recycles several stories from the first two books, so now I have 3 versions. Anyway, in this book, there is a lot of information on nutrition, a lot of it I have issues with when it comes to grains. Since nutrition and recipes , etc., constitute half the book, I skim through those parts just to get it over with. The info on exercise is good, but so much of that was basically repeated from the first two books.

Some folks will get a lot of helpful advice from this book, but the nutrition aspect of it did not speak to me, as I lean toward low carb and am perturbed by the constant drone of "eat whole grains" when other books like Wheat Belly explain the risks of this.

If you are a fan of Younger Next Year as I am you will likely find this book disappointing. First, it is no longer focused only on older adults. Second, this time Chris has teamed up with a very bright and very opinionated nutritionist who is apparently unaware of recent research on the benign nature of much dietary fat and the fact that the China Study has not withstood academic review. Anyone who disagrees with her advice is ill informed, detrimental to society's health and a "nitwit." Save us from the righteous. The last third of the book, mainly focused on older folks exercise and written by Crowley, is ground breaking and excellent. But spare me any more "Jen."

I'm a big fan of Younger Next Year. Loved its science-based approach to the subject matter. So it was with real excitement that I bought and read Thinner This Year. What a let down. To the degree that it reflected the "best of" YNY, it was fine. And aspects of its "diet and exercise" content were good if already well-documented everywhere (work-out, eat less crap, etc.) But I kept getting an "eating disorder vibe" from many of the nutrition sections: obsess about amounts eaten, excessive cardio in order to "burn off pounds," stories of "falling off the wagon" type experiences. Additionally, there was a brief and breezy dismissal of anything "Paleo" with no supporting data at all. Anyway, as stated, YNY is a terrific book. As a complement to it, I'd recommend something along the lines of The Primal Blueprint, not TTY.

"Younger This Year" outlined the processes going on that causes what Americans have settled for in old age. I was seeing this hapening to myself so I was ready to act. "Thinner This Year" delves much deeper into the scientific underlayments so those who want specifics to cross check to convince themselves will have more facts than they wanted to see.

Since I am already convinced, having foods and quantities spelled out is a big help. The exercises listed are different than when I was a boy and have shown me how to modify what I do to work areas I need to exercise now.

Chris is a great motivator and he picks execellent scientists to work with.

This book is not adequate for someone not familiar with dieting and for those who are, you already know anything valuable it contains. Let me spare you the heartbreak: Eat lots of vegtables and fruit. Cut back on fats and carbs, especially processed. Exercise as much as life allows. Ta-da!
