A men's health book you can read from cover to cover without losing the will to live. That's how malehealth editor Jim Pollard describes his new book, The User's Guide to the Male Body, published today.
As the back cover blurb puts it, 'there's no longer any need to die young just because you're male'. The User's Guide to the Male Body spells out how to keep the male system running healthily for years to come:
In his foreword to 'the book that all boys should be born with', Men's Health Forum president, Dr Ian Banks says: 'This no-nonsense book reflects men's concerns and shows men what they can do about them.'
The world first professor of men's health Professor Alan White of Leeds Metropolitan University says: 'Jim Pollard has the rare talent of turning complex issues into plain speaking. His guide to the male body is an essential read for all men.'
Jim adds: 'The reality is that health is not top of most men's priorities. But that doesn't mean they're not interested. Books for dipping into are fine but, if men dip at all, too often they dip too late - once they're already ill. I've tried to write a book that any man of any age can happilly read from cover to cover BEFORE he gets ill and, as a result of the little changes it suggests, perhaps live a longer and healthier life.'
