A Short Guide to a Long Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the world’s leading doctors and bestselling author presents the simple rules everyone should follow in order to live a long, healthy, and productive life.

In his #1 New York Times bestselling book, The End of Illness, Dr. David B. Agus shared what he had learned from his work as one of today’s most prominent cancer doctors and researchers, revealing the risks he takes in a field begging for innovations that can prolong not only the lives of cancer patients but anyone hoping to live long and robustly. Now Dr. Agus has turned his analysis into a practical and fun illustrated health guide for everyday living.

Hailed by Vice President Al Gore as having developed “a dramatic new way that could lead to greatly improving the quality of life for millions, starting right now,” Dr. Agus believes that our foundation for optimal health begins with the daily habits we keep — and that we can build upon that bedrock with inexpensive, widely accessible drugs that have been proven to work while ditching false promises, such as vitamins and supplements.

A Short Guide to a Long Life is divided into three sections (What to Do, What to Avoid, and Doctor’s Orders) that provide the definitive answers to many common and not-so-common questions: Who should take a baby aspirin daily? Are flu shots safe? Are vitamins bad for you? What is truly “fresh” produce? Why is it important to protect your senses? Are airport scanners hazardous? Dr. Agus’ eye-opening responses will help you develop new, effective patterns of personal health care so you can maintain your health using the latest and most reliable science. Now go live life!

Review:

"The little volume contains Agus's starkest, most clear-cut prescriptions yet...in a field rife with caveats, Agus speaks with a ringing clarity." Wired

Review:

"Little line drawings and a conversational, fatherly tone make this guide light and easy to follow...readers who have already taken Agus as a health guru will love it." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This little book is full of great reminders." Shelf Awareness for Readers
