From the Inside Flap
"While many respond negatively to the thought of exercising, dieting, and changing their lifestyle, Dr. Furman has managed to take what is threatening and make it thrilling. When you finish this read, you will actually be excited about the possibility of a longer, healthier life."--from the foreword by Dr. David Jeremiah

Putting his three decades of experience and education to work, vascular surgeon Dr. Richard Furman gives you the strategies you need to live not just longer, but younger. This essential resource to a lifetime of health helps you

· achieve and maintain your ideal weight
· reduce your risk for life-threatening diseases
· make exercise a natural part of your life
· learn what foods to eat and what foods to avoid

Poor health during your "golden years" is not inevitable. It can and should be avoided at all cost. And with Dr. Furman's expert advice, you'll be well on your way to living a long, healthy, vibrant life.

From the Back Cover
"Dr. Furman lays out a thorough review of the medical literature, written in layman's terms in such a way that is easily understood. Read it. Apply it. If you are like the majority of Americans, you will become 7-12 years younger physiologically than you presently are chronologically."-- Bill Frist, nationally recognized heart and lung transplant surgeon, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader, and Chairman of the Executive Council of Cressey and Company

Dr. Richard Furman is a vascular surgeon with decades of experience. But his personal journey into living younger longer began with a tight pair of pants. Rather than go up a size, he decided to get back to his ideal weight. He changed how he ate. He began to exercise regularly. He started intensive research into what it takes to prevent the kind of conditions his patients had. What he found changed his life . . . and will change yours.

Do you want to be healthy and active all of your life?

Do you want to enjoy not just long life but quality life?

Do you want to be there--wholly there--for your family and friends?

Aging is inevitable, but heart disease, cancer, diabetes, dementia, stroke, erectile dysfunction, and other age- and obesity-related problems are not! Simple, sustainable changes you make today can mean the difference between enjoying time with friends and family, and wasting it in doctors' offices and hospitals.

PRESCRIPTION FOR LIFE is a must have on everyone’s bookshelves. It includes basic plans to be healthy, instead of getting “age related” or “obesity-related” diseases. As someone who has gone through breast cancer, I want to reduce my risk of more cancer, so I read those sections with interest. I also read the sections for medical issues my husband suffers with and learned that some are signs of more serious problems! Time for him to go to the doctor for a physical, I think.

This is a must read book. Don’t hesitate. Pick up your copy today. Mine is going on our bookcase – after I have my husband read it. And I’m going to start changes in our diet and exercise today. $9.99 Kindle. $15.06 hardcover. $19.73 audio cd. 352 pages.
