Publisher's Summary

Cameron Diaz follows up her number-one New York Times best seller, The Body Book, with a personal, practical, and authoritative guide that examines the art and science of growing older and offers concrete steps women can take to create abundant health and resilience as they age.

Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health and encouraging them to look beyond the latest health trends to understand their bodies at the cellular level. She interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists, and a host of other experts and shared what she'd learned - and what she wished she'd known 20 years earlier.

Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a conversation with her peers on an essential topic that for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female body. In The Longevity Book, she shares the latest scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing insights from top medical experts with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences.

The Longevity Book explores what history, biology, neuroscience, and the women's health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our 30s to midlife. From understanding how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the way aging affects men and women; the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline; how meditation heals us; and why love, friendship, and laughter matter for health, The Longevity Book offers an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages - and what we can all do to age better.

Without sugarcoating the hard facts - a 60-year-old body is different from a 35-five-year-old body no matter how much yoga you do - or romanticizing the upside - wisdom comes with age, if you live your life wisely - Cameron offers women a compassionate, informative, and intimate tour through the next stage of life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Boring. Nothing new here
    "

    Cameron's first book was better. This one lists a bunch of diseases & studies....to sum it up.. stop smoking, workout, meditate, sleep 7 hours a day, love & stress less, 15 min of Sun a day, go to your doctor's checkups, do mental exercises and eat a Mediterranean Diet. 😊

    "A wake up call, invite anyone to read this ."

    Easy read... her intention is to help many women who read this Book.
    while I am a health care professional & should know all of this information.
    I ignored that I do not apply this knowledge to myself.
    I took no interest in age related health.
    I have had a paradime shift , now planing on following books advise on growing old and staying strong.
    loved book

    "Pharma propaganda"

    It seems that big pharma may have hired a beautiful actress to front a pro pharma book. Take your statins everyone! Supplements are expensive pee! Written in a chatty engaging girlfriend style.

    "A book filled with learning and joy"

    Explore the nature and reality of aging. Not only do you have the tools in this book, this book enables you to feel it, see it, and breathe it. I advise to have a journal and write down the methods and solutions that are applicable to your own life and to re-listen after you began your journey to reflect back.

    "Great book. I wish Cameron read it tho."

    I was distracted by the professional reader at times. She sounded a little like Ms. Diaz but an over the top version of her.

    "The best is at the end"

    Story
    "Grade School Biology Class Refresher"
    What would have made The Longevity Book better?

    I felt like I was listening to a book that was written for a reader with an 8th grade education - possibly 6th grade. The advice in this book wasn't unique and there was too much time spent on explaining biology.This book is more for someone that has no base knowledge in nutrition and wellness.


    Has The Longevity Book turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This book made me appreciate better the information and style in books authored by Joel Fuhrman or Dr. Perlmutter, for example.


    Did Cameron Diaz and Sandy Rustin do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The reader did a good job


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Personal testimonies from Ms. Diaz were the most interesting part
