Publisher's Summary

At 44, acclaimed cardiologist Dr. John Day was overweight and suffered from insomnia, degenerative joint disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. On six medications and suffering constant aches, he needed to make a change. While lecturing in China, he'd heard about a remote mountainous region known as Longevity Village, a wellness Shangri-La free of disease where living past 100 was not uncommon. In the hope of understanding this incredible phenomenon, Dr. Day decided to spend time living in Longevity Village. During his time there, he discovered seven principles that work in tandem to create health, happiness, and longevity - rules he applied to his own life. Six months later he had lost 30 pounds, had lowered both his cholesterol and his blood pressure, and had even been cured of his acid reflux and insomnia. Now Dr. Day shares his story and the proven program he's developed to help you, too, feel sharper, more productive, more motivated, and pain-free.

    "FDA wake up call"

    Great summary of the ailments and prescriptions to our poor state of healthfulness. US healthcare and FDA wake up call to refocus on health issues even at a cost to big pharma and mega Agra.

    "Not bad but nothing great"

    The audiobook was okay, but I didn't really learn anything of interest that I wasn't already familiar with and the story was nothing spectacular.

    "not enough material for a book"

    this is enough for a blog but not a book. all points are valid but can be contained in less than 15 pages.

    "Life changing"

    This tale of health and longevity was engaging and easy to listen to. I was carried away by the scenery and characters, so much so that by the end of the book I was calling myself a member of longevity village and could hear the voices of the centenarians sharing their wisdom with me. Thank you Dr Day for writing this book and thank you Joel Richards for narrating it so beautifully!

    "Well worth listening to and implementing!"

    This is a book that I will listen to several times. Since our health care system is actually a chronic disease management system, the information in this book is beneficial to achieving and maintaining optimal health.

    "Well rounded"

    I liked that this book wasn't bashing other diet protocols and didn't push any certain agendas. it was just sharing how centarians lived their lives.

    I loved every minute of this book. I found it very inspirational thought-provoking and a wonderful way of looking at life and I may take onboard some of the things from this book, I would highly recommend if you're looking at starting a new way of thinking about life then this book is well worth a read or a listen.
