Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley

yny-journalTurn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men–as much fun to read as it is persuasive–Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to “Harry’s Rules.”

The Zone Diet by Barry Sears

zone_dietThe Complete Plan to Revolutionize Your Diet and Your Life THE ZONE is the revolutionary diet plan based on Nobel-prize winning research that has been adopted by celebrities including Madonna, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Demi Moore, Caprice Bouquet, Barry Mannilow, and more. Copies of Sears’s books ENTER THE ZONE and MASTERING THE ZONE have sold more than 2 million copies. Finally, this plan is being adapted to the British palate and cupboard. All 150 recipes in this book will be anglicized and will make The ZONE more accessible than ever before. Dr. Sears is writing a new introduction for the UK marketplace. In short, THE ZONE goes against recently received wisdom about the health benefits of low-fat high-carbohydrate diets and suggests that if we continue to eat a lot of grains we will simply get fatter. Sears contends that too much carbohydrate (which converts to sugar) upsets our delicate hormonal balance and throws us into a constant sugar-craving state and gives rise to a diabetic-like condition. By balancing our diet and eating more protein and fat we enter a Zone of optimum metabolic function and peak performance. Eating in THE ZONE will not only burn fat but it will also fight heart disease, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and more

The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gwande

Checklist ManifestoWhy is it that some people make dream after dream come true, while others just continue dreaming and spend their lives building dreams for someone else?

One simple reason: those that are “successful” have found their SLIGHT EDGE!

The Slight Edge is not just another self-help, motivation tool of methods you must learn in order to make it up the path of success. It simply shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you.

The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson

Slight EdgeThe modern world has given us stupendous know-how. Yet avoidable failures continue to plague us in health care, government, the law, the financial industry—in almost every realm of organized activity. And the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of knowledge today has exceeded our ability as individuals to properly deliver it to people—consistently, correctly, safely. We train longer, specialize more, use ever-advancing technologies, and still we fail. Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument that we can do better, using the simplest of methods: the checklist.
