I finished the second of my New Year’s Resolution Books, You: Staying Young, by Michael F. Roizen, M.D. and Mehmet C. Oz, M.D. This is the 4th of the 5 books that I have read by these guys and it was a nice addition to their library of books. I first heard about Dr. Oz’s first book, You: The Owners Manual, while I was at the bookstore with my wife one day. She heard someone talking about it, and so we decided to give it a read. It was a very intersting book about how the human body works and different things you can do to keep it in shape. Dr. Oz is now featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and he also does a Discovery Channel show.

In You: Staying Young The Owner’s Manual for Extending Your Warranty, the doctors (Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen) go into the details of how you can live and longer and a healther life. They begin the book dicussing all of the different Major Agers in the body, starting with Telomeres, then on to the Heart with Oxidation and Inefficient Mitochondria, dealing with stress, toxins, and horomones just to name a few.

One of the facts that I found interesting was that when you are doing deep breathing through your nose, when you inhale, you have receptors in your nose that release nitric oxide into your system. What nitric oxide does is it helps dialate your lung passages and arteries to keep your blood moving freely.

All in all, this is another great addition to the very interesting complications of the human body. Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen keep you very entertained while you are learning what you need to know about the human body, from the mind to the heart, the lungs to the sexual organs; they cover it all!

I finished this book two days ago, so I figured that I should tell you about it. My wife is a teacher, and she is the person that turned me on to this book. It is about some of the differences between poverty, middle-class and the wealthy. I think that if you have a better understanding of all three types of sociao-economic types, that you have a better chance of getting furthur in life. Think about it. Many of the wealthy people today started off in poverty, and they went through a process of learning to get to the wealth that they have today.

What really caught my attention about this book was when my wife read off to me the “hidden rules” of each class. It really was amazing how the way we think is preprogramming us into a certain class, and how the different classes associate with one another in the class, such as in the type of register they use (speech), discipline, etc.

This book is a fantastic book for any educator, disciplinarian, or anyone who supervises in the work place. It is a quick read, only 183 pages and is very informative. I would highly recommend this book by Ruby K. Payne, PH.D
