I have told a half dozen friends about this book. I can't stop talking about it. It was so interesting and fascinating and I'll go so far to say life changing.
The genius of this book is the how fun it is to get to know Olga as a person while you learn a ton about the scientific reasons why some people age better than others.
This book is dense with facts, studies, and scientific theories that are interesting. I learned a lot--facts and information that I can apply to my own life. But all that denseness is lightened by Olga.
Olga is just fun to know. She's awe-inspiring as a person and it was truly entertaining to learn about all her feats.
The narrator was great.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
I recommend this book often. I've listened to it twice and it really did help change my habits. I was a vegetarian of 20 years who lived on Mac & Cheese. I keep a lot of the wisdom from this book with me. I think Robbins makes this advice practical and accessible to everyone. My favorite thing though is the background research he did and the examples of people from other cultures.
