YOU: The Owner's Manual
An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger

By Michael F. Roizen, Mehmet Oz

Did you know walking or jogging with lightweight dumbbells isn’t for your body?

Did you know a simple set of old fashion exercises is just as productive as the expensive exercise gimmicks on today’s market?

Did you know your eye color dictates where your ancestors once lived?

     In YOU: The Owner's Manual, Roizen and Oz show us everything we need to know about our bodies and gives some sage advice on how to keep them healthily. They explain how the mind and body works as they go through the various parts of the anatomy. They describe the common problems both the male and female body tend to have and how aging affects the body. They also dispel common myths and include some fascinating facts, and it’s all done with a good dose of humor.

       I have to agree with Oprah and the Today Show’s Katie Couric, You is one of the better health books on the market. Right now, if I were to recommend one to my friends and family, this would be it. It’s easy to understand, comprehensive in its content, and destined to outlive today’s flash-in-the-pan health books. Consider it a lifesaving gift for both you and your loved ones.
