This book is more than a bunch of exercises. In fact, if that is what you want, you can find better books out there. For me, this book supplements exercise books I already have (not to mention tons of exercise information available to anyone online).
It covers a lot of general health related topics for men over 40 including diet, nutrition, stress, health checks, etc. It is well-written, concise, and easy to read. I like how the author provides information from studies to support many of the suggestions (granted, this is not a textbook nor a peer-reviewed scientific publication, so don't expect anything real well-documented. It would be easy enough to follow up on anything that didn't seem right).
I was skeptical and picked up my copy at the library, but I think I will purchase a copy to keep.
Bottom line: working out and eating the same way I did in my 20s no longer works for me. I am tired of trying to do my old freeweight workouts only to get injuries and still have a gut. Things change as you get older, and the sooner you realize what those changes are, the sooner you can move forward.
If you think that this book is all about exercise, it is not. It also provides various nutritional tips, coping with stress and the importance of getting rest.
There have been several people that I have referred this book and they have enjoyed it. The most important thing is putting various concepts to practice. Even if you initially are unable to perform various exercises, don't become discouraged. There are other substitutes that you can perform - and the book even addresses this.
I have not tried the various recipes yet; however, one book that is a good recipe supplement is the "Mastering Your Metabolism Cookbook".
So, if you are soon-to-be 40, 40-something or 40+ this is a good book for you. Even if you simply use it as a supplement to another book, it is a good resource to have in your library. The most important thing is using various principles - not letting the book sit and collect dust.

Good workout advice. The food advice was good, but there is so much of it that it's hard to keep track of everything. Some more advice on mean planning would have been nice.Published 12 months ago by James Bender
It really wasn't that useful to me - was more or less basic information I already knew. Good for a beginner though.Published 14 months ago by Jonathan F. Adams
