Why do some people age in failing health and sadness, while others grow old with vitality and joy? In this revolutionary book, bestselling author John Robbins presents us with a bold new paradigm of aging, showing us how we can increase not only our lifespan, but also our health span.

Through the example of four very different cultures that have the distinction of producing some of the world’s healthiest, oldest people, Robbins reveals the secrets for living an extended and fulfilling life in which our later years become a period of wisdom, vitality, and happiness. Bringing the traditions of these cultures together with the latest breakthroughs in medical science, Robbins reveals that, remarkably, they both point in the same direction.

    " What I loved most about this book is that is speaks to people who commonly say things like, "It comes with aging" when referencing their physical pain and health conditions. We don't have to take that road! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sheryl | 2/13/2014

    " This changed my view of eating. It strengthened my thoughts on nutrition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Stacy Ho | 2/11/2014

    " It's fascinating to learn about the longest-lived, healthiest people in the world and the case for a mostly plant-based diet, exercise, and positive social relationships. I appreciate that this book is part of John Robbins' stand for a thriving, just, sustainable way of life for all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Derek | 2/3/2014

    " Absolutely wonderful synopsis of the entirety of living healthy. It combines about 5 other good books into this single reference (Anti-Cancer, Blue Zones, etc). I enjoyed the first 80% and then the author went on a little bit of a soapbox preach of how government should be doing this or that and left the personal application (skip that chapter and it's 5 stars)... but he wraps up the book well :) Well put together book.
