Legend has it that hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lies an ancient secret. Tibetan monks have preserved it as a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties known as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation. Peter Kelder begins this extraordinary book with an account of his introduction to the rites via Colonel Bradford, a mysterious British army officer who learned them while journeying in the Himalayas. Peter then reveals the rites (simple, yoga-like positions) that can make you feel and look much younger. Testimonials to their efficacy are legion adherents report that chronic backache, poor memory, sight, and hearing, grey and thinning hair, weariness, poor digestion and arthritis have simply disappeared after undertaking them. Requiring just minutes a day to perform, they comprise the legendary Fountain of Youth, whose waters are for everyone.
