Professor Norman Ratcliffe is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and has published over 200 books and research papers on immunology, cancer, influenza, tropical diseases and MRSA. Five years ago Professor Ratcliffe decided to produce a comprehensive but easily accessible book on health and fitness to help people of all different ages lead more healthy and fulfilling lives; the result of this five year project is the 'It's Your Life' series of books. There are six books in the series; five of these offer advice in specific areas, whilst the sixth - It's Your Life: End the confusion from inconsistent health advice - includes all of the advice given in the rest of the series.
