KIRKUS REVIEW

Lelord Kordel may still be jogging and swimming when he clears 100 but his very regularly appearing books seem to keep tossing the same salad. Here he is again, breezily touting anti-wrinkle exercises, warning on the dangers of refined flour and white sugar, and itemizing the physiological benefits of sex. This one also features some beauty secrets we're reluctant to pass along--steamed onion slices for acne, dialing the telephone with your knuckles--and some more of the ones we've heard before: the wondrous HOV formula (honey-oil-vinegar), an appetite-depressant appetizer, is familiar from Secrets for Staying Slim (1971). And the save-yourself prose, with such cheery and original lines as ""This is the first day of the rest of your life,"" is enough to make us plan a lunch of sugar sandwiches in revenge.
