America's Favorite Doctors Try to Outdo Their Own Blockbuster

SAN DIEGO, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- This blockbuster just got even better! YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition, by Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD, hits bookstores today. The original book, published by HarperCollins in 2005, sold more than 2.5 million copies and was second among the best-selling books across all titles in 2005. The new edition, packed with tons of new material and the latest research findings, is expected to shoot to the #1 spot again.

With appearances on Good Morning America and The Oprah Winfrey Show, the authors will promote the new version of the book that made them household names and launched a series of YOU best-sellers, including YOU: On a Diet and YOU: Staying Young. The updated edition offers a brand-new chapter devoted to the liver and the pancreas; fresh recipes; a great innovative workout; and more than 100 FAQs about health, which were taken from letters sent in by readers.

Drs. Roizen and Oz are the experts behind RealAge.com, the free Web site that offers the interactive companion to the YOU book series and is the home of the RealAge Test. The new YOU: The Owner's Manual Center on RealAge.com (http://www.realage.com/ct/the-you-docs/you-the-owners-manual/) will be launched in conjunction with the book release.

Like the book, the YOU: The Owner's Manual Center on RealAge.com offers visitors a lighthearted look at the complex inner workings of the body. Need the 99-second version of the Owner's Manual, which covers all the body functions the doctors learned in their first 2 years of medical school? RealAge has it, along with other excerpts of the book, including:

Visitors to the center can also take a Brainpower Quiz, find tips to tune up their systems, take the Body Smarts Quiz, and learn exactly how the liver and other vital organs manage a nightly bowl of ice cream and a beer chaser.
