The Blue Zones

The Blue Zones

Dan Buettner

Overview

As humans, one of the most common collective desires is to live a long and fruitful life. Although numerous scientists and experts are working on slowing down the aging process, some people around the globe are already living to be over 100 years old.

Dan Buettner is a New York Times bestselling author and a National Geographic fellow. In this book, Buettner identifies the five so-called 'Blue Zones' — areas of the globe where a disproportionate number of people become centenarians, living to 100 years old. While some advice may seem obvious, Buettner shows us that good health comes down to a lot more than simply avoiding cigarettes and fast food.

"Drink without getting drunk, love without suffering jealousy, eat without overindulging, never argue, and – once in a while, with great discretion – misbehave."
