    Dreadful new-age claptrap. Couldn't get more than 10 minutes into it.

  • Diana

    I'm a registered nurse and I found this book very informative. I would recommend this one. Great simple explanations. Entertaining book as well.

  • Sandra Oliver

    A good overview of the body and its systems. It breaks down the functions and gives advice in easy to understand language. It is a little hard to write down the suggested foods/vitamins, etc. while you drive.

    Didn't like it very well. It went into too much detail and tended to repeat itself. Was not what I expected.

  • Debra Jones

    As far as the material I found it very informative. However one of the Dr's clearly has a speech impediment and sounds like Elmer Fudd thru the whole thing. Not to make fun of anyone's speech but perhaps a different reader would have made the book less comical. I had a few laughs over that.But the book is great.

  • Jackie Bozeman

    I enjoyed this book very much. I'd heard about this book on Oprah when Dr. Oz talked about his 90 Days Live Longer, Look Younger plan. This book talks about things you can do to make your life better and healthier. I'm planning on trying many of the suggestions. I think if a person really wants to improve his/her life, they will find a way to incorporate many if not all of his and Dr. Roizen's suggestions. Many can be done without too much money.

    There is just plain nothing new here unless you know nothing zero zip nada about health.

    This audiobook was good, and full of information that was helpful and useful. The audio portion was monotone, could have used some additional intonations or effects. Overall, an enjoyable book, because of the content.
