Apparently YOU need a lot of supplements My goodness I was hoping to learn a little about the human body from this book I did learn a few things, but primarily I learned that if I want my Real Age to be a certain SPECIFIC number of years younger then I need to take a certain SPECIFIC amount of A LOT of supplements I was waiting to hear what web site I go to to buy the YOU supplement package because they really seemed to be pushing them hard I m not saying supplements don t have benefits, but I w [...]

There are countless self help books ranging from diet, exercise, psychology, and the like One of the authors has really taken advantage of this new found fame, Dr Oz, and leads me to some skepticism regarding future pronouncements Yet, most of the advice and info in this book originates from sound, proven scientific data Most of the data herein is the culmination of hard evidence based on theory, model and proven in labs, and the anecdotal experience by two of the nations foremost physicians The [...]
Loy Machedo s Book Review YOU The Owner s Manual by Michael F Roizen Mehmet C Oz.I am old.35 years old Ever since I crossed the 30 year mark, I have become pretty obsessed and cautious about my health For reasons that I cannot explain, I have been on a quest to understand what I can do to keep myself fit and healthy Where once upon a time I used to leg press over 300 kgs and dead lift for my back over 200 kgs, today I am pretty happy with a 15 minute light jog on the treadmill followed by light [...]
I wish I would have learned biology or health with this book in high school It makes the body so easy to understand It reads as of a reference book and I ll keep it around as such For example, I had a sore throat recently and I remembered trying a salt water gargle in the past with little success I looked it up in the book and I realized the only quick fix to feel better was a salt water gargle with warm water a certain number of times a day It worked It s also made me stick with taking a multi [...]
You The Owner s Manual contains some genuinely helpful information but personally, I would consider that statement as damning by faint praise It s a health book written by a host of doctors, the least it can do is contain some helpful nuggets of information As is, the book is weak You can tell by reading it that the authors were seeking to really fulfill the needs of the elderly, older than fifty set but decided to attempt to broaden the book s appeal in order to try to pull in money from other [...]
A very readable introduction to the systems of the body and how to take care of yours and increase your health and reduce aging processes Includes a healthy dose of humor and many suggestions for diet and dietary supplements, as well as a recipe section and a crib sheet on exercise This would be a good introduction for folks on how the different systems of their bodies work especially people who are confused by medical jargon This is easy to understand and fluidly written HOWEVER, there are many [...]
This book gave a good overview of your body and the things that you can do to make your real age younger Things like smoking take off years from your life, while eating healthy and exercising can add years Overall a good explanation of the different systems in your body and how to keep them working properly.
I was hoping for something a little in depth, but as I read it, I felt like I was being talked down to I m not certain what I was expecting, but give me than a 6th grade reading level and bizarre illustrations
It was interesting to read so much about the human body I thought it would be boring or long and drawn out but it was very clearly written and fun to learn so many great things and how complex and miraculous our bodies are.
I love all the You books especially the smart patient one I always learn so much
Be forewarned, by reading this amazing book, you will want to change the way you live Even we transplant patients who carefully follow our doctor s orders will find additional best practices that will add to both length of years lived as well as improving overall quality of that daily living.The underlying theme of this manual is to improve your life by understanding risk factors that impact how well and how long we live Noted heart transplant surgeon, Mehmet Oz, MD along with Michael Roizen, MD [...]
I liked this book A bunch of information on how all of your systems work together and the little changes you can make to help your body live longer Most of it is commonsense but there were a few nuggets of information that I really liked Exercise and not even that much can make a huge difference Diet is becoming one of the biggest factors In my limited understanding, nutrition is a science that is grossly misunderstood We were all taught things as recent as a few years ago and they turn out to n [...]
This book is very easy for normal people like me to understand.We can change our life by changing a little bit of our habit everyday.The only problem is that this book always recommends people to use supplement I think about 1 3 of the total recommendations.This issue makes me be doubtful of the credibility.Anyway, still very good
Usual stuff is repeated again.
This book was really insightful and entertaining at the same time Back when Dr Oz was not all over the place
This book contained a good, overall picture of the human body I was hoping for specific information, and I was not expecting the doctors to recommend taking so many supplements.
Meh, this was just OK If you are an absolute beginner in the better health world, then this will help you Otherwise, skip it and read advanced information.

% What did I push My review was like, done, and I hit a bad key and everything reverted back to my old review that was written here, before I read the book HOW DO I UNDO IT WHEN I SCREW SOMETHING UP LIKE THAT Maybe I m just on edge I have a 5 year old and 3 year old here on my couch, and every three seconds they ask me a question like, What kind of food does your cat eat or Do you know how to tie knots It made it very hard to focus enough to write anything coherently, and now after ALL OF THAT H [...]
It s odd that we have no innate knowledge of how the body operates It seems intuitive that we should know all about ourselves, and it s almost contradictory that we don t This book is a wonderful reminder of the fascinating complexity that unconsciously, in most of us happens in our bodies every moment of every day The book provides a friendly introduction to the workings of our major systems circulatory, nervous, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, lymphatic, endocrine, and Better than just [...]
A Review of You The Owner s Manual An Insider s Guide to the Body That Will Make You Healthier and Younger by Michael F Roizen Mehmet C Oz Dr Oz Rating Two StarsEdition Hardback Genre Health WellnessI used to really like Dr Oz and watched him quite a lot, but over the years that opinion has drastically changed I m not going to get into the why, but it has changed my opinion about this book quite a bit.This book goes through each part of the body and how each works Some of it is even funny I did [...]
I listened to the audio of this book, and I was getting frustrated because there were so many milligrams, micrograms, and international units of this or that mineral or vitamin or acids that I should take on a daily or weekly basis, that I should be noting down but, being on the move listening on the go to this audiobook, I couldn t very well easily do so So I felt the nuggets of golden secrets to lasting health slipping away from my grasp one after the other as I heard them come one after the o [...]
As much as this book annoyed me, I think it is a decent read and reference point for certain audiences.The author tried too hard to be funny The forced humor and obscure metaphors, with few exceptions, were out of place and detracted from the overall quality and content of the book.Serious consideration should be taken when identifying an audio book s narrator This audio book had two narrators one with a mild speech impediment While I have nothing against people with speech problems, it is diffi [...]
I first read this book when it originally came out before Dr Oz got so wonky, trendy, and sold out It was updated in 2013 It covers your body system by system Heart Brain and Nervous System Bones, Joints, and Muscles Lungs Digestive System Liver and Pancreas Sex Sensory Organs Immune System Hormones It also covers cancer information, diet and recipes, and exercise Each chapter has suggestions for supplements, foods to eat or avoid, and lifestyle ideas for maintaining each system.I reread this bo [...]
I FINALLY finished this book I read most of it pretty quickly, and then I just got bored and took a million years on the last chapter This is a pretty good basic general health book So basically, if you don t know much, then this would be a good reference book I do like that there is a plan that they include of living a healthy lifestyle and they even include recipes I haven t tried any of them, but maybe someday I will One thing that really annoys me about this book is that they try to be WAY t [...]
What an amazing book So easy to read and the way it was divided allowed for me to pick it up and just read a few sections at a timeI want to read it again Here s my Three Sentence Book Summary Where to start about the awesome ness that is You The Owner s Manual this book is the perfect combination of comedy and scientific accuracy that allows the reader to understand so much about the different components of the human body and how it works With easy to understand language and great, real life de [...]
Beautiful bodies sell magazines, tattooed bodies attract gawkers, trained bodies, well trained bodies win championships and lucrative contracts, celebrity bodies are stalked by papparazi and chronicled by tabloids Love that Dr Oz can t stop talking about what he feels passionate, particularly the cardio vascular health I m all caught up with preventive measures to live younger and longer which include, 30min cardio every day, vegetables, avoiding stress, critical need for 7 8 hrs of sleep every [...]
A lot of good factoids here and a book that I will refer back to often One thing I like about the book is when it makes recommendations that are common sense, they often explain the science behind the common sense There is also a focus on how to prolong life which I found good Not that you can fight entropy, but you can make wise choices to maximize life and quality of life Because of the way God has designed us my words, not theirs , we can make choices in eating, sleeping, activity, environmen [...]
