Book Review: You: The Owner's Manual



You: The Owner's Manual by Michael F. Roizen, M.D. and Mehmet C. Oz, M.D.

I remember that this non-fiction book was all the craze when it was released, and now the follow up (You: On a Diet) has not been on the library shelves since we bought it, so I thought I would check this one out.

This is a really interesting book - written in a conversational tone, with lots of funny asides and quips - about the different parts of the body, how they work, and how you can get the most out of your body through foods, vitamins, exercise and more.

Not preachy, just informative, this is a great book for anyone who wants to know why and how we function as we do, and how different influences (foods, walking, genetics, etc) affect how healthy we are, and what we can do to be "younger".

Informative, interesting and easy to read - this is recommended!

I'm enjoying it too. Despite having had coursework and work experience with anatomy, etc., I love reading well-written books for the "layman". I always find something new that I didn't know. Also, the illustrations in this book are great. ;)
