Take a Simple Drive to a Healthier Life: and Live Longer Too! by Roger Smith.

Dr Roger Smith has been in family medical practice for over 25 years. In this, his first book, he emphasises the need to be consistent about a healthy diet, regular exercise, and good routines.

Just as you need to provide sufficient care for your car to keep it running well, your own personal vehicle (your body) is no different. If you neglect to service your car or ignore warning signs of trouble, you risk a major breakdown.

The book is available as a free download by emailing the Author or via The Simple Doctor website, Amazon, Apple iBook,

It is also available as a hardcopy via the above but this does incur a fee.
