From Publishers Weekly
Crowley and Lodge rework their bestselling Younger Next Year (which targeted men) to address health and aging concerns for women. Former attorney Crowley's chatty voice alternates with internist-gerontologist Lodge's straightforward medical perspective. The authors promise that major lifestyle changes, including a six-days-a-week exercise regime, and a positive view of aging will make the "next third" of life—the stage after menopause—the most fulfilling. Because women live longer, are highly motivated for change and fear aging less than men do, the authors contend, they will reap great benefits from the program. Crowley and Lodge put their own spin on commonsense health essentials, with Lodge adding information on the latest antiaging breakthroughs. A variety of activities (biking, skiing, sailing, yoga) will likely make the intensive exercise plan more enjoyable. Although there is little new material, women may find the 71-year-old Crowley's cheerleading appealing—the old buddy tone of the previous edition is exchanged for that of a male "girlfriend"—and a great motivator not only for making lifestyle changes but for equating health with how one feels, not how one looks.

The chapters on emotional health are generally on target.... I know, I'm a psychotherapist.
The material on diet is right on, too, I've read a lot on that, and recommend the New York Times article on the Mediterranean and Vegan diets (Mediterranean wins hands down) and the book The China Study by Campbell.
It just troubled me when they refer to a study in which women with breast cancer lived twice as long if they attended a support group for 6 weeks (pg 271). This study is 20 years old, or so, and attempts to replicate are inconclusive. A reading of the literature gives no indication of this sort of impact. It would be a happy miracle if it did. I'm hoping this is the only factual error in the book, and that the authors will correct it.
The authors clearly state this is a one-for-all solution.
Taking that to hear, I feel like I'll continue with this book, but will be careful to cross check, and to work with a trainer to individualize it for myself. We sorely need a motivational book.
This book is co-authored by Crowley (the cheerleader) and Lodge (the doctor), and they give the reader the double whammy of inspiration and motivation. Crowley goes on (and on, sometimes) to convince us that turning back our biological clock is truly is possible. Lodge supplies the kind of medical explanation that can make the difference between wanting to change our habits and actually doing it. In terms easy to understand, Lodge lays out what our bodies were designed to do, and how modern living goes against our physical blueprint. He explains things like free redials and anti-oxidants, diabetes, how certain foods work for and against our bodies, and the complex systems that turn on and off the chemicals that can slow or reverse the aging process. Before I read this book, I didn't get it. Now I do.
Whatever your fitness level or current health, you will benefit from reading this book.
