For every man – regardless of hair pattern, shoe size or IPA preference – Man Overboard! by Mayo Clinic Press helps you understand your health and live your best life with this humorous but authoritative manual for the aging male.
Let’s face it, guys: we barely know what we’re doing with our health. We’re not stupid, we’re just disinterested. Clouded by the hallucinogenic effects of testosterone, we tell ourselves “I’m fine, and so I will continue to be fine, which is fine.” Meanwhile, men’s health magazines hypnotize us with constantly changing recommendations designed to hold our eyeballs until the next wellness fad comes along. And when we finally do drag ourselves in for a clinic visit, we find that even good doctors forget that most of us don’t understand medical jargon, nor do they realize we are on a time-sensitive special-ops mission: get in, get what you need, and get out!
Learning about your health doesn’t have to read like a colonoscopy (informative, yes, but difficult to sit through without sedation). Staying healthy is serious business, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Informative but entertaining, this must-read, head-to-toe guide provides actionable advice, so you can stop worrying about your health, do something about it, and get on with your life.
With chapters like “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” “Andropause,” “Sexercise,” and “Move It or Lose It,” you’ll learn how to: Eat right, exercise effectively, and manage your weight Address your risks for heart disease, reduce stress, and deal with back pain Avoid the three cancers that men commonly develop and know if your T levels are right Navigate challenges in the bedroom, deal with thinning hair, and handle getting older¬–not unscathed, but with a sense of control and dignity It’s for men of every ethnicity, BMI, hair pattern, shoe size, IPA preference and sports predilection (including none). Think of it as the ultimate checklist for your next checkup. Grab yourself a beverage and a flimsy paper gown, and let’s do this!
