I love Jack, so I wish I could recommend this book. The information seemed too basic, though; only someone with no knowledge of healthy eating and fitness would find it useful. The plugs for the juicer are off putting.

World famous fitness guru, the very first, Jack Lalanne's greatest book. a detailed precise work with information as to the calories and vitamins of a great many fruits, and berries, and vegetables and what they can do for your fitness health. Jack Lalanne discovered the fountain of youth instead of merely sitting in it you have to eat fresh foods, and drink clean water, and EXERCISE and you like him will retain a lot of your strength, overall health, and even your hair as you go well into very

I think that this was an ok book for someone looking for a way to get off the couch and start getting fit, however, for someone that's already active I don't think it would be very useful. There were two thinly veiled advertisement angles that I didn't like and could've done without, one for his publisher's magazines and the other for his juicer. While I think that some of his twelve steps, such as maintaining good posture and good hygiene, were a little silly, it's hard to argue with a man who ...more

Only good advice from that book was how to get motivated to exercise and eat healthy: undress, stand in front of the mirror, relax all the muscles and decide if this is the body you want to live with or are you going to do something with it.

Rest was a standard list of exercises (mostly dumbbell ones), list of fruits & vegetables with nutritional value and some modest advertisement for his juicer.

Good motivational, biographical and survey book with general fitness and nutrition information. Great for novices, people who are just getting off the couch after a long absence from healthy living, and people who are looking for a simple and sane healthy living program.

A man who was ahead of his time. Truly a gem. This is a must have for anyone who lives for and strives for a healthy lifestyle. Great References in the back section of the book on fruits and vegetables and all of their benefits.
Motivational and Inspirational! Love you Jack!!

What an inspiration this man is! He lived to be a very youthful (in body and mind) 96 year old. He wrote this book when he was 95. What a truly great role model for living a healthy lifestyle! The funniest quote in the book: "If it tastes good, spit it out!" LOL!
Dan Lurie
Much as I admire Jack, this book is pretty much aimed at the novice.

You won't knock out 1,000 pushups in half an hour from the programs in here.

Its not at all bad, but there's nothing new in here for a moderately well-read fitness buff.
Atti
it is amazing what he accomplished,
a very good book from the master himself
