A New York Times Bestseller!
With the right lifestyle, experts say, chances are that you may live up to a decade longer. What’s the prescription for success? National Geographic Explorer Dan Buettner has traveled the globe to uncover the best strategies for longevity found in the Blue Zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives. And in this dynamic book he discloses the recipe, blending this unique lifestyle formula with the latest scientific findings to inspire easy, lasting change that may add years to your life.
Buettner’s colossal research effort, funded in part by the National Institute on Aging, has taken him from Costa Rica to Italy to Japan and beyond. In the societies he visits, it’s no coincidence that the way people interact with each other, shed stress, nourish their bodies, and view their world yields more good years of life. You’ll meet a 94-year-old farmer and self-confessed "ladies man" in Costa Rica, an 102-year-old grandmother in Okinawa, a 102-year-old Sardinian who hikes at least six miles a day, and others. By observing their lifestyles, Buettner’s teams have identified critical everyday choices that correspond with the cutting edge of longevity research—and distilled them into a few simple but powerful habits that anyone can embrace.

His cover story for National Geographic magazine, "Secrets of Living Longer," was a finalist for the National Magazine Award.From AudioFile:
A colorful survey examines why people in four communities in California, Japan, Italy, and Costa Rica are happier and live significantly longer than most Americans. The author's careful research, guided by epidemiologists and other scientists, found that living longer and more enjoyably was associated with nine familiar practices, such as eliminating processed food; reducing stress; exercising more; and staying connected to family, a spiritual community, and a big-picture life purpose. Michael McConnohie's smooth vocal resonance and natural-sounding dialect interpretations make this lesson fun to hear. His delivery of the dialogue reported between the subjects and the author makes the core principles in this research captivating. With its concise, down-to-earth recommendations, this is one of the most hopeful and motivating quality-of-life audio lessons available. T.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
