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.

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.

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.

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.

life changing

This book is inspiring and makes me want to change my life. in fact I have already taken considerable steps to creating a healthier life based upon the stories in this book. When the book ended I was disappointed there wasn't a more structured explanation of trials the Dr. has done, or how he has applied what he has learned scientifically with patients. I would love some real work case studies besides himself. I even went back to see if I had missed a chaoter, and then to see if there was a companion book with this information. But overall, inspiring book.

The secret, it turned out, was simplicity.-Dr. Day

What made the experience of listening to The Longevity Plan the most enjoyable?

I read this book as part of my preparation for Walking, Living, Learning Vol. 2.This book will get anyone thinking about their health, well-being and longevity and give practical advice to improve each area. I loved the stories, the 7 easy to remember points, and the narrators use of correct Chinese in parts of the book to illustrate points and draw the listener in.

What did you like best about this story?

Dr. John Day's last line in the book is; "The secret, it turned out, was simplicity!" Each point he shares is simple, yet profound.Each point is easy to do, and just as easy not to do.Each chapter is well written and builds line upon line and point upon point, compelling you to follow the 7 points he discovered while visiting Longevity Village in China.

What does Joel Richards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His Mandarin is better then mine and I studied for 5 years. ;-) Great job.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Ancient secrets for YOUR health & longevity.

Any additional comments?

Read & implement the practices discussed in this book. I wish more Dr's would believe and practice what Dr. Day has shared in this book. Well done and for me .... 5 stars all-around!

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.

Brilliant book, real page turner. A mixture of ancient healthy pathways that most health professionals would want their patients follow... brilliant

wonderful book

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.
