    Why do some people age in failing health and sadness, while others grow old with vitality and joy? In this revolutionary audiobook, best-selling author John Robbins presents us with a bold new paradigm of aging, showing us how we can increase not only our lifespan but also our health span.

    Overall

    Although I was able to glean bits of useful information from this book, at nearly 11 hours in length this audio is about 9 hours too long although your personal taste may give him more leeway as he tells arguably interesting stories long past the point of relevancy. Robbins is an aging hippie and his agnst-filled worldview sets an overall tone of negativism while pining for the primitive existence of disappearing cultures. I got the feeling the book was written less to inspire the individual to take steps to good health but more to inspire the government to pass laws about what we can eat and perhaps other rules forbidding "unhealthy" cultural tendencies. I would wait for the (heavily) abridged version.

    Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries are critically acclaimed. Longmire's third outing takes him from Wyoming to Philadelphia to investigate a brutal assault on his daughter, Cady. Walt believes her ex-boyfriend is behind the crime and searches him out. But when he turns up dead, Walt is back to square one.

    I'm reluctant to write this review and sound like a Debbie Downer but it just seems to me the rating is way too high. To each his own, of course but with over 1100 ratings and an average rating around 4.5, this had to be an excellent book, right? I thought the book was solidly...ok. Excellent performance, unique plot and somewhat interesting characters. Finished strong but hardly something I couldn't put down. Somewhere between a 3.5 and a 4.0.
