For years we have been told to make lists and obsessively monitor when we're angry, what we eat, how much we worry, and how often we go to the gym. So why isn't everyone healthy? Now based on the most extensive study of long life ever conducted The Longevity Project reveals what really matters across the long run - the personality traits, relationships, experiences, and career paths that naturally keep you vital. Gathering key new information and using modern research methods to study 1,500 Californians across eight decades, health scientists Dr. Howard S. Friedman and Dr. Leslie R. Martin bust many old dead-end myths. For instance,

    <.li>People do not die from working long hours at a challenging job - many who worked hardest lived the longest
  • Getting and staying married is not the magic ticket to long life, especially if you're a woman
  • It's not the happy-go-lucky who thrive - it's the prudent and persistent who flourish through the years. See why.

With self-tests that illuminate your own best paths to longer life, and a deeper scientific understanding than we have seen before of the true causes of long-term health, this audio book will change the conversation about what it really takes to optimize your chances for a long, healthy life.

    " Really interesting book with a few surprising revelations about what ACTUALLY promotes long life. The text was a bit dry at times, but the conclusions were fascinating and it was overall an accessible, informative read that could promote an interesting discussion among fellow readers about how to lead the "ideal" life. "

    " Easy read with some valuable information. Argues that conscientiousness and social wellness will lead to longest lives as opposed to traditional metrics like diet/exercise. "

    " this was a nice follow-up for me after reading a book about personality traits because it identifies clear traits as leading to long life. overall, this book may have worked best as a detailed article, but nevertheless it was interesting to dig into lifestyles and personalities that led to long life for a select sample of people who were followed in a longitudinal study. i think the caveat for the book is that the sample was of american, white, well-to-do people. and i wonder about any moral value someone might place on long life as being somehow "better," but i can understand good health as promoting a good quality of life. "
