Buck Up: The Real Bloke's Guide to Getting Healthy and Living Longer

9780143568308: Buck Up: The Real Bloke's Guide to Getting Healthy and Living Longer

All Black legend Buck Shelford was the epitome of brute strength, determination and athletic prowess. It was a shock to New Zealand sports fans, then, when he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in 2005, which he subsequently overcame with treatment. More recently, after a public battle with his weight, Buck successfully shed over 25 kilos. Accessible and user-friendly, Buck Up draws on Buck's personal experience with health issues, but goes far beyond - along with highly regarded sports scientist Dr Grant Schofield, Buck offers a wide array of information and realistic tips to improve the quality of life for Kiwi males and their loved ones. A book full of big ideas and practical advice, as well as a good dose of blokey humour, Buck Up promises to positively alter awareness and approaches to men's health, for both everyday males and practitioners.
