    One thought on “Why Men Die First: How to Lengthen Your Lifespan”

    1. I like this book from the beginning I read it. The book touch aspects from the very conception to the aging solely for male gender. Many things in this book that I can relate too. Growing as a boy and later as a man really has its own challange. The content is not so techical and can be read by anyone A handful of statistics that emphasizes everything about growing up and towards aging, emotion, societal definition of a man, male-disease related etc. were discussed here.

    2. This was okay. Some interesting little bits here and there, but a lot of areas just skimmed over with no deeper insight. I didn't learn much about the difference in genders from a scientific perspective.

    3. baru sampai beberapa halaman, jadi sementara ini cuma bisa bersimpati sama cowok :Dlingkungan sosial dan budaya adalah assassin yang paling canggih, diam-diam menenggelamkan

    4. Decent, somewhat repetitive & superficial. Not very well structured/written. Has many good insights & stories, worth the read, but not great.
