LOOKING AFTER YOUR NUTS & BOLTS: PHIL GIFFORD’S KIWI MEN’S HEALTH GUIDE
(UPSTART PRESS, $ 39.99)
Phil Gifford ( North & South’s music columnist) has a track record that includes demotic humour and nonpareil sports writing. He is also just the right bloke to connect with his fellows in a relatable way and get them to listen to what he has to say about looking after their health – something men are notoriously reluctant to do, because it involves acknowledging we may not be invulnerable, after all.
The fact that I’m a case study in this book ( you’ll just have to buy it to find out the details, but I’m all better now) has had no influence on my recommending it as a long-awaited, much needed, go-to guy guide for all matters life- extending.
