In this expanded paperback edition of his New York Times bestseller, longevity expertâ€ Dan Buettner draws on his research from extraordinarily long-lived communities-Blueâ€ Zones-around the globe to highlight the lifestyle, diet, outlook, and stress-coping practicesâ€ that will add years to your life and life to your years. A long healthy life is no accident. It begins with good genes, but it also depends on good habits. If you adopt the right lifestyle,â€ experts say, chances are you may live up to a decade longer. So what's the formula for success? National Geographic Explorerâ€ Dan Buettner has lead teams of researchers across the globe to uncover the secrets of Blue Zones-geographic regions where highâ€ percentages of centenarians are enjoying remarkably long, full lives. The recipe for longevity, Buettner has found, is deeply intertwined with community, lifestyle, and spirituality. You won't findâ€ longevity in a bottle of diet pills or with hormone therapy. You'll find it by embracing a few simple but powerful habits, and byâ€ creating the right community around yourself. In The Blue Zone, Buettner has blended his lifestyle formula with the latest longevityâ€ research to inspire lasting behavioral change and add years to your life.
