I am very excited to see another book from the one consistent expert in fitness and health.  Over the years, Clarence Bass has been my mentor, physical role model, and a source of inspiration...While popular press is always chasing the latest fad, Clarence Bass continues to give us the facts and the truth.  Brian Chasteen, Birmingham, MI

Looking at your new photos it is clear you are the only person in your age group who has retained a great deal of your muscle mass and incredible definition. No one is close.  Richard Winett, PhD, Heilig Meyers Professor of Psychology, Virginia Tech

We  really appreciate your response to our email, and look forward to a much longer and healthier life than we would have had without you folks.  My weight loss and my wife's weight loss are wonderful, but more importantly, you have had an impact on my grandson that will live long past our own lifespan.  My God bless and keep you both.   Bob Ryan, Bexley, Ohio
