Reviews

In this 2008 title available for the first time on audio, Buettner (founder, Quest Network) draws from a National Institute on Aging study of four of the world's "blue zones"-Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, CA; and Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica-where common elements of lifestyle, diet, and outlook result in high quality and length of life. Narrator Michael McConnohie's (www.michaelmcconnohie.com) well-paced, enunciated reading helps to guide listeners through this fascinating discussion of the latest thinking concerning health, happiness, and longevity, which should appeal to listeners/readers of self-help and would work well alongside similarly practical health-based titles, like Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Foizen's You: On a Diet. [The National Geographic hc was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Laurie Selwyn, formerly with Grayson Cty. Law Lib., Sherman, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
