4.0 out of 5 stars "Dr." Oz - great man, this is his book!, August 17, 2009
This review is from: YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition: An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger (Hardcover)
I have been on baited breath since I learned that "Dr." Oz (I prefer "Dr." to "Mehmet", as I'm not sure how to say that) is going to have his own television show this fall delivered from Oprah's blessings! I have always followed Orpah and Dr. Phil, and to have a new Dr. show with her involvement is just too much. It's great! I hope that they will maybe have a "Dr. Summit" with Dr. Phil (my idea!) and compare notes about the best way to be healthy (Oz) and "real" (Dr. Phil). I do also wonder if Dr. Oz is going to wear the blue "scrubs" on his show like on Oprah's show, since Dr. Phil never does, and I have to admit it makes me afraid he might suddenly get called into surgery.

Anyway, the book is educational and has lots of cartoon science drawings in it which are funny but sometimes they confuse me, as they make "jokes" out of things like glands and stuff. Are glands funny? There's lots of other jokes too, most involving celebrities, many of which I don't understand. But on a positive side, this will be a fun book to read in the future with my grandchildren, so I can explain to them all about Will Smith.

But other than that, it's chalk full of useful health advice about everything from dealing with corns to eating salt, and probably a good book to read in preparation for his new show. Also, if you don't understand your mate or significant spouse, this is an owner's manual for everyone, so it might help. Dr. "Mehmet" Oz has a book for you! YOU: everything from O to Z!
