Award-winning author and researcher Dan Buettner has traveled the world to meet the planet's longest-lived people, and learned nine powerful yet simple lessons that could put you on the path to longer life. Where did he find them? In the Blue Zones. Blue Zones are communities where common elements of lifestyle, diet and outlook have led to an amazing quantity - and quality - of life. Dan Buettner shares the secrets from four of the world's Blue Zones. Buettner's extensive study uncovers how these people manage to live longer and better, but found in the everyday things they do: the food they eat, the company they keep, and their very perspectives on life. In The Blue Zones, they become yours to follow for life!

    " Just finished this book. These Blue Zone people lived over 100 with little medical care. Why ? It seems they had strong networks of friends, helped raise grandchildren, ate low on the food chain, and believed in a high power. It was interesting, but nothing that the newspapers have not told us about how to live to a full life. "

    " I find the whole idea of Blue Zones fascinating and definitely worth investigating. I think there is a lot to be learned from people who live simpler, healthier, more active lives. But I wish the book had focused more on the lessons learned from these people and the longevity habits they practice. As it is, the lifestyle habits and suggestions are presented as sort of an afterthought in the last chapter. I thought too much time was spent explaining how the researchers found these people, as well as the history of the Blue Zones. In that regard, it's more of a cultural study than a book about health ... but it's still worth reading. "

    " Great book to remind you how easy it is to live longer. Super easy/fast read. I read it in 3 days and would read it again. "

    " I didn't really like it and confess I skipped around a lot. Mostly the advice for living longer is much like everything else I've read so I found much of it boring. Notably though I think most of us lack the tight culture and extended families of the places where people live longest. "
