    I picked up this book 8 years ago at the IUP campus bookshop and never read it it was scientific than what I thought it would be The authors presented much scientific evidence explaining why we should slow down, exercise moderately vs the extreme programs that seem to have captured our imagination now , and eat less like Michael Pollan suggests I like how they categorize people as owls who stay up late and drag in the morning or larks who get up early and go to bed early They suggest that larks [...]

    If you are the sort of person who regularly puts yourself through what most of us consider extremely unpleasant to hellish activities rising at the crack of dawn, taking cold showers, keeping your house cold, spending hours pounding the pavements, etc in the belief or hope that this will help you to live long enough after your retirement to make your hectic life spent on the career treadmill worthwhile, the examples of runners dropping dead of heart attacks in this book may be just what you need [...]

    A few contradictions in the beginning few chapters For instance they wrote that those with little or no exercise conserve life energy Yet later on they still mentioned about regular exercise.They also mentioned vigorous exercise is the main cause of heart attacks, and that athletes tend to die young.It does make me feel so much better for lying down and relaxing whenever Apparently life energy is measured in calories, similar to the scale people use to measure weight loss and food intake I do u [...]

    I started reading this book with a lot of expectations , but somehow i really did not enjoy it much Though this book introduces few things which can be kept in mind to lead a better life but still i couldnt conclude that the theory we believed in till now is faulty It presents a totally different analysis I guess both the theories should have been taken into account, considering the pros and cons of both and then a definite conclusion could have been made.

    There is definitely some faulty science and logic at play here, however, it was an interesting read that provided me with a good deal fo food for thought about how to approach relaxation, food, exercise, and life in general.
