Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author and researcher Dan Buettner has traveled the world to meet the planet’s longest-lived people, and learned nine powerful yet simple lessons that could put you on the path to longer life. Where did he find them? In the Blue Zones.

Blue Zones are communities where common elements of lifestyle, diet, and outlook have led to an amazing quantity – and quality – of life. Dan Buettner shares the secrets from four of the world’s Blue Zones. Buettner’s extensive study uncovers how these people manage to live longer and better, but found in the everyday things they do: the food they eat, the company they keep, and their very perspectives on life. In The Blue Zones, they become yours to follow for life!

    "Too much numerator and not enough denominator data"
    Any additional comments?

    Interesting descriptive information about these populations, but compared to what? People with statistics background will likely be disappointed. On the other hand, it probably won't hurt to adopted many of the lifestyle activities identified in the book.
