From Publishers Weekly:

Cooper's second book in his "preventive medicine program" adopts an approach similar to that of his bestselling Controlling Cholesterol : it focuses on a serious, largely avoidable disease well known but not fully explained to the general public. As Cooper observes, contrary to popular belief, men and women of all ages are prone to the disease, though some--cigarette smokers, drug users, endurance athletes, sufferers of eating disorders, et al.--are at higher risk. In fact, everyone who ages risks osteoporosis, and with the specter of brittle bones and limited mobility before them, will absorb his sensible, scientifically sound information on how to achieve peak bone mass by age 40 and retain it via diet, weight-bearing exercise and adjustments in lifestyle. Though Cooper assesses diagnosis and available treatments (ranging from controversial estrogen replacement to the use of calcium supplements), he stresses the benefits of exercise and diet, and includes detailed programs for each. Of limited value to those already afflicted, the book will help younger readers at high risk. Author tour.

From Library Journal:

Cooper provides an analysis of the risk factors for developing osteoporosis and discusses the principle of reaching peak bone mass to prevent bone loss. The two essential ingredients in reaching peak bone mass are weight-bearing exercise and calcium intake, and Cooper presents a detailed description of various progressive aerobic exercise programs, weight training and calistheics programs, offers a diet program based upon 1500 and 2200 calories, and includes lactose-restricted menus with recipes. The material is well presented, and the exercise component makes this a nice complement to Harris McIlwain and others' Osteoporosis: Prevention, Management, Treatment ( LJ 2/1/89).
