I got this book on the advice of a very good friend o mine who knows that I am interested in the subject of self-improvement and taking care of your body and soul. In a sense this volume reminds me of my favorite book in this category titled Can We Lve 150. I like both books for the comprehensive approach to taking care of oneself. Instead of focusing on now so popular dieting program, the authors apply a much broader approach where taking care of one's mind and spirit is as much important as taking care of one's body and its physiological needs. Although I find Can We Lve 150 a superior book to "Wear Your Life Well" I still found here a few chapters that were not tackled by the other author. Specifically I found very helpful the chapter about self-sabotage as well as the chapter about sex. Actually these two chapters are the main reason I liked the book, as a lot of other stuff wasn't a new discovery for me, although it might be the case for some other readers. I think this book is definitely worth your time and money but I subtract one star for the lack of originality.

I have to admit that I was looking forward to this book because it was aimed at people looking to improve their health at mid-life. Entering my mid-forties and definitely focused on improving my health and lifestyle, this was exactly what I was ready for. I read Wear Your Life Well from cover to cover ready for anything new or exciting and different.

I didn't find anything new, but Marilu Henner and her brother/co-author, Lorin Henner did present things in a unique style. And she is full of an energy and excitement that is evident in her anecdotes about her life and work, which she provides in abundance to make her points.

That said, the program itself, not really a program, but rather, many separate ideas brought together for the purpose of her book, has some definite value for people starting out on the journey of improving their health and well-being. Marilu gives some truly inspirational points. My favorite includes her tip on how she overcame self-sabotage. After many years of struggle with this myself, she speaks truth when she says "You have to fall in love with something bigger than your cravings." (p. 47) This is the recap of her expansion on the point which is found on page 45.

I know that she has experience fighting in front of Congress for better guidelines regarding food and water, but I feel some of the things she wrote should have been backed up by reference points of studies where she learned some of her statistics. For example, she writes at the top of page 60 about alcohol reduction for women because of it increasing their risk of breast cancer. Where do these facts come from?

There were a lot of chapters I loved. I loved the chapter on stress.

I picked this book up a couple of days ago and couldn't put it down until I'd pretty near finished. And that was just the first read - I can tell I'll be picking this book up regularly for years to come, it's so full of "whole life" wisdom. Being healthy is so much more than eating well and exercizing (although you can't be healthy without that!), it's about getting your relationships, job, and your whole environment healthy, and that's what I *love* about Marilu's message in this (and all her other) books. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know!!

Marilu Henner's book was one given to me by someone concerned about my total health and beauty--not just the surface, what one sees from outside, but the inner light that glows from within. My friend pointed out that, although Henner, a former actress and TV star, had written many successful volumes about total health and beauty, the new one hadn't done well in the bookstores and was already remaindered. I can see that there certainly anywhere near the number of reviews for this book that Henner's previous books mustered, even on Amazon. Check it out, maybe people are tired of her message. Well, they shouldn't be! She has a lot to offer the restless seeker.

One of her main tenets is similar to advice my uncle Bill used to give me, when he said that if you smile often, you'll feel yourself growing unconsciously happier because the muscles make you happy. Uncle Bill, who exerted a strange influence over me, was a Marilu Henner type of person, though a bit larger and younger. Henner advises those of us who are not healthy to think about auditioning for the role of a healthy person. How would you walk if you were healthy? What would your hair look like? How would you prepare for this role? And if you can do it for even a day, you can "act" your way into fitness. But, you will say, I'm not an actor. Nonsense, scoffs Henner, we all of us act every day.

Think of your health as a business, she says. She has written all of her books while acting in other projects, for the energy that fuels the one fuels the other too, through an odd cross pollination of good ideas. My Uncle Bill was like that too, he thought nothing of installing knotty pine walls into a basement while dictating his response to Plato's Symposium into one of those old fashioned reel to reel recorders. And always dressed impeccably, like Marilu Henner--none of those vinyl workout outfits for her, because they promote dehydration.
