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”.

What Our Readers Think
I was a skeptic on the whole idea of this famous doctor knowing how to change my life and live longer and healthier. After many years of athletic competition, I am an aging business executive that has had diet and exercise drummed into me since childbirth. Each week is a new diet or exercise gimmick. The media showers me with every kind of propaganda from ab busters to hanging upside down like an monkey. This easy read, not too expensive book, tells in a funny way things like "Great abs come from the kitchen". In other words, yes it is what you eat. This no nonsense practical approach to health doesn't take away my Cherry Garcia before bed, just limits it to one night a week. Excercise done in a fun fashion within my hectic schedule has always been a challenge.
3 years ago I was a broken down ex-football player, that had Atrial Fibrilation, fat, high blood pressure, hypertension, you name it bad, that was me. Today I am very happy at 6"3" 215 (I don't run the 40 in 4.8 anymore), but I do mountain bike and live a balanced life. As a former triathlete I was always an all or nothing. I have watched the author go through similar life experiences and the chapters you will read resonate with his life experiences that are transformational.
Have fun and don't take life so serious.
I recommend you enjoy this book and take the kernels of wisdom and apply them if you want to change your life!
Zacman, Review on Amazon.com
In writing MEN DIE YOUNG, WOMEN DON'T CARE, Dr. Hizon hits the nail on the head without really trying. Explained in direct, no-nonsense manner, his guide to good health doesn't take any prisoners and doesn't care, let the junk food afficionados ignore the advice and die with their secrets. Although it should be no big news to anyone that proper eating and exercise are the foundation of good health and longevity, more words of wisdom are packed in this book than anyone should be allowed to ingest in one reading. In a strange twist of fate, it was a good day when I busted my shoulder during Aikido practice a few years ago. Dr. Hizon's decisive attention and sound recommendation to a top surgeon for immediate surgical arthroscopy saved my chances at resuming my martial arts training and eventually prompted me to put my physical wellbeing into his hands. This book certainly is an added tool to anyone wishing to live a long healthy life.
