The #1 bestseller that gives YOU complete control over your body and your health.

With new health studies and advice bombarding us every day, few people know much about what chugs, churns, and thumps throughout the miraculous system that is the human anatomy.

YOU: The Owner's Manual challenges preconceived notions about how the human body works and ages, and takes you on a fascinating grand tour of all your blood-pumping, food-digesting, and numbers-remembering systems and organs—including the heart, brain, lungs, immune system, bones, and sensory organs.

In this updated and expanded edition, America's favorite doctors, Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, discuss how YOU actually have control over your genes. Discover how diseases start and how they affect your body—as well as advice on how to prevent and beat conditions that threaten your quality of life.

There are also 100 questions asked by you, and answered by the experts. For instance, do you know which of the following statements are true?
As you increase the amount you exercise, the rewards you gain from it increase as well.If you're not a smoker, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to your lungs.Your immune system always knows the difference between your own cells and enemy invaders.The biggest threat to your arteries is cholesterol.Memory loss is a natural, inevitable part of aging.Stress is the greatest ager, and controlling it changes which of your genes is on.
Did you answer "true" for any of the above? Then take a look inside. Complete with exercise tips, nutritional guidelines, simple lifestyle changes, and alternative approaches, YOU: The Owner's Manual debunks myths and gives you an easy, comprehensive, and life-changing How-To plan—as well as great-tasting and calorie-saving recipes—that can help you live a healthier, younger, and better life.

  • Nonsense

    This book is a collection of recipes extracted from the full version. You should save your money and not purchase either one, since the dietary advice is full of conventional wisdom based on an outdated, and since discredited theory called the Lipid Hypothesis--the claim that fat is bad and whole wheat and grains are healthy. This is pure nonsense, as any of the recent published studies (I.e. Stanford's AtoZ study) will attest to. There are much better books available on diet and nutrition--books that are not outdated by 30 years like this one.
  • Not the whole book!

    I hate to be a naysayer (considering all the 5 star ratings this seems to be getting), but in reality, this is only the menu portion of the book. Which is very misleading, as the description makes you think that the whole 544 page book is included here on the iPad. It's not, you only get 112 pages - most of it recipes (I should have known, it was only $1.99 after all). After getting over my initial disappointment in feeling a bit gypped - the recipes included are certainly worth the paltry sum. Just be aware.... you don't get the meat and potatoes *sic* of the whole book. It seems that this book is sold in "pieces" here. Although not logically explained anywhere, there seem to be several parts available for $1.99 and another large portion of the book on the iBook store for $13.99. Good idea, bad implementation - especially by using the identical description for each one. It has you believing you're getting the complete volume.
