Good Research

This is a very well written discussion of the current understanding and research on telomeres. The author puts his research into language accessible to scientist and layperson as well. This volume is well referenced for the professional. And well-sourced for the layman. For anyone interested in stress, aging and mechanisms this book is for you.

Live Long, Live Fit

This book is not about getting a longer lifespan but, more interestingly, about how to shorten, reduce the disease span at the end of your life and the quality of life in your last decades. Worth the time spent reading it. Many thanks to the authors.

Reader pronunciation struggles

Book is a bit dated considering most recent strides in research. Even though; the book had good baseline information regarding telomeres & effects on telomere length in aging.

You must be kidding.

The serious scientific work regarding telomers was rarely mentioned. The presentation was horrible and felt more like a poorly conceived web commercial for supplements. I do not enjoy for one second giving a negative review. That was 60 seconds longer than the book deserved.

Good To Kick Off

An excellent book to help you guide yourself through a lifestyle that will keep your telomeres long. There is no other book like this. It’s a must-read if your goal is to live healthy and better as long as possible. It is very well written and very easy for the non-scientist (as well as the scientist) to follow.

Very Informative Book

Telomeres are the protective ends of your chromosomes. Long telomeres are good but genetics and lifestyle can shorten them and affect aging. This book explains what you can do to keep your telomeres healthy. As other reviewers have stated, I found this book too long and repetitive. But the information is interesting and important. Information like this shouldn’t only be available to the scientific community, so I appreciate that the authors wrote this book for the rest of us.
