What is this book about?

Men die younger than women yet even men do not seem to be alarmed by this. While we encourage women to continue to improve their health, we desperately need men to get into the medical “game”. Men are notorious for not going to the doctors unless there is a blood spurting reason. Men Die Young, Women Don’t Care is intended to be used as a tool to encourage and enable men to get checked before it is too late. Written by a sports medicine doctor, it may be just the method to get guys to get that check up and become lean and fit. With real life examples, written in non threatening way, this book should be given to all men you care about. Real men should go to the doctors and this may just be the trick to getting them to show their “tender underbellies”.
