    I really enjoyed readi… I really enjoyed reading this book. It is well written and reads along at a good pace. I really liked the little side bars that gave useful tips about a particular food that is part of the diet of that particular Blue Zone. I found that I did not have to radically change my diet or routine to be living healthier but improve my health through small adjustments.

    This was a very intere… This was a very interesting read. I enjoyed hearing the authors experiences of visiting with centenarians. Rather than just plying the readers with data, he did a good job of bringing the individuals and their lifestyles to life. One review of this book that I read gave it a poor rating, as there was no real new or astounding data. I think that was one of the best things about the book. People are always looking for a miracle cure, one magical thing that they can do to live forever. I found it comforting that all of the conclusions they found in studying the people in these Blue Zones are things that we all can do, and things that we pretty much know we should be doing.

    The book differs from … The book differs from the typical fare of longetivity offerings whereby the author has determined that there are specific areas of the world “Blue Zones” where people are known to live significantly longer than the normal life expectancy of an industrialized nation. The book focused on interviewing these octagenarians in there home and seeing what they had in common that distinguished them from other nations. This unique approach was interesting and pointed out a common them. Many of people lead a very simple life. They grow their own food, have deep family roots, work and stay active all their lives and live more or less stress free. While I found this book interesting, anyone that really wants to benefit from the findings can just read the final chapter that tells how to incorporate the findings into your lifestyle. Ultimately, the final rersults are the basis of which all the thousands of health books have in common. Don’t smoke, drink in moderation, eat natural foods and exercise. Follow these rules and you can live longer. Unfortunately for us Americans our lifestyles of fast food and high stress work will never let us achieve our optimum life span. If you are interested in longevivity study then you would probably enjoy this book. If not, just read the last chapter if you have the opportunity.

    This was an enjoyable … This was an enjoyable read. Having traveled around the globe more than few times I was always intrigued how certain races or cultures seemed to have the longevity factor far outpacing the normal lifespan. In ‘The Blue Zone’ you’ll find ways to live as much as a decade longer, thereby leding one to live a longer and fuller lifespan. Inside you’ll find habits that can and will develop habits to leading a more productive life!

    Living a healthy life … Living a healthy life well into your 90’s – and possibly your 100’s – may be easier than you think. Award-winning author and researcher Dan Buettner has traveled the world to meet the planet’s longest-lived people, and learned nine powerful yet simple lessons that could put you on the path to longer life. Where did he find them? In the Blue Zones – Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, California; Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica.

    Its a pity many of the… Its a pity many of the Blue Zones (high life expectancy areas) are disappearing due to the expansion of western ideas – except for the Blue Zone in the US (the Adventists). Many common themes come out of each of the Blue Zones and these are summarised in the 9 factors that lead to a long life. Hard physical work apparently doesn’t kill you. You can log onto BlueZones.com to take a longevity survey. Funnily enough the site mentions consuming fish which is not one of the 9 findings. Recommended reading.

    5070. The Blue Zones … 5070. The Blue Zones Second Edition 9 Lessons for Living Longer from the people who’ve lived the longest, by Dan Buettner (read 1 Oct 2013) I read the second edition of this book, which was published in 2012. The author, a writer for National Geographic, tells of his visits to Sardinia, Okinawa, Loma Linda, CA, Costa Rica, and the island of Ikaris, Greece, where he and his fellow researchers interviewed the many 100-year-olds living in those places in an effort to see why they were able to live so long. He spends a lot of time on their diet but also emphasizes their non-fast-paced style of living. Many of their lives do not seem too interesting but they are satisfied and they live longer than people who live more exciting lives. Anybody can pick up some hints as to what might cause one to live longer. I liked the fact that there was emphasis on eating nuts regularly. Since I for some years have eaten 16 almonds every day, I took a little satisfaction in learning about that. There are lots more interesting things one can learn from this book, written of course in National Geographic prose.

    Despite the book having a quote from Dr. Oz on the front, I found this book to be very interesting and informative. It was a great mix of science and personal stories, mixing qualitative and quantitative evidence. Th author had a few missteps, such as the fact that, despite longevity research having been predominantly focused around women, in none of his expeditions did he include a single female longevity expert. And him drawing conclusions about things that are true for “most of the population (except pre-menopausal women)”–yes, technically the number of males and women who are peri- or post-menopausal in the United States is greater than the rest of the female population, but it is not like females under the age of 45ish make up an insignificant portion of the population. But despite there being a few moments which led to me argue with the author in the margins, in general this book provided excellent food for thought (and discussion with my family, whether they liked it or not), and I would highly recommend.

    A wonderful combination of food and cultural. If you read cookbooks for fun, like me, this is the book for you. In addition to a description of the areas in the world with record longevity, there are recipes and beautiful photographs. It’s a coffee table book that you can carry into the kitchen.

    Great book but might look different. The book cover was different than the one I ordered. Recipes look great but it wasn’t what I expected so I returned it.
