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 life span 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 are a period of wisdom, vitality, and happiness. We will never think about age - or life - in the same way again. Book jacket.

Excellent- His better-mousetrap idea was to compare the [3] longest- lived populations on earth for social and diet similarities, then present results.
What results? Hint: it ain't Atkins, or individualism. It's more Mediterranean diet and valuing the social.
Yes, mostly just common-sense, which isn't common, but i've never seen it all marshaled so engagingly and succinctly.
Here's a quote by an ancient Okinawan: "You have two doctors- your left and right legs."! :)

Just read it. Try "The Okinawa Diet Plan" and "The Brain Diet" too.

Engagingly written book about the emotional and cultural barriers that prevent Westerners from living to their full health potential, while providing hope for change.
