He's a new grandfather, talk show host and best-selling author. And now Dr. Mehmet Oz has a new magazine. New magazine launches are always risky. Increasingly, consumers are flocking to the Internet to read for free. And many of us have the attention span of a gnat (swat!). Despite those odds, Dr. Oz's "The Good Life" is turning into a rock star in the magazine world.
“[The magazine] is going well. We sold out the first issue, and we sold over 200,000 subscriptions, so I’m happy,” he said to Mediabistro.
We received our own copy of the launch issue and, after reading it, shared it with friends. Verdict: From weight loss to wellness, from food to family, it truly opens the door to helping you expand your own "Good Life."

Dr. Oz's talk show has become a forum for all types of health, wellness and beauty. The diverse topics seem to appeal primarily to women, and he makes the most of it with lots of hand-holding and hugging of his female audience.
For those who doubt that he really knows much about all those topics (he's a cardiologist), read Dr. Oz's books. They're in-depth discussions of how to improve your life. Our favorites include "YOU: The Owner's Manual: An Insider's Guide to the Body That Will Make You Healthier and Younger" (click for details) and "YOU: On A Diet Revised Edition: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management."
