What made the experience of listening to The Blue Zones Solution the most enjoyable?

Though this is a non-fiction book, it is presented as a series of stories that made it enjoyable to listen with good actionable information, not just a bunch of statistics.

Any additional comments?

Some people are giving bad reviews because they can't find the attached reference material and recipes. They should consider reading the description and downloading the companion PDF before giving a bad review because they apparently would rather complain than read actual words to see that the PDF is in their library.

For this geek at least, Isaacson's book provided a very interesting background of the technological innovations that we take for granted today.
