A little about the book: “9 Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest. In The Blue Zones, a New York Times bestseller and featured on Oprah, Buettner has traveled the globe to uncover the best strategies for longevity found in the blue zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives. In this dynamic book, he discloses the recipe, blending this unique lifestyle formula with the latest scientific findings to inspire easy, lasting change that may add years to your life. You’ll meet a 94-year-old farmer and self-confessed ‘ladies man’ in Costa Rica, a 102-year-old grandmother in Okinawa a 102-year-old Sardinian who hikes at least six miles a day, and others. By observing their lifestyles, Buettner’s team has identified critical everyday choices.” – bluezones.com
