National Geographic explorer Dan Buettner has traveled the globe to uncover the best strategies for longevity found in the Blue Zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives. Here he discloses the recipe, blending this unique lifestyle formula with the latest scientific findings to inspire easy, lasting change that may add years to your life. Buettner's research effort, funded in part by the National Institute on Aging, has taken him from Costa Rica to Italy to Japan and beyond. In the societies he visits, it's no coincidence that the way people interact with each other, shed stress, nourish their bodies, and view their world yields more good years of life. By observing their lifestyles, Buettner's teams have identified critical everyday choices that correspond with the cutting edge of longevity research--and distilled them into a few simple but powerful habits that anyone can embrace.--From publisher description.… (més)

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 long, healthy life is no accident. The secrets to longevity are widely debated and sometimes misunderstood--yet remarkable groups of people manage to achieve it naturally, enjoying longer life spans while remaining active and vital well into their 80s, 90s, and 100s. These people can be found in the world’s “Blue Zones,” extraordinarily long-lived communities where common elements of lifestyle, diet, and outlook have led to an amazing quantity--and quality--of life.

Journalist and longevity expert Dan Buettner, in conjunction with the National Institute on Aging and top researchers in the field, has done exhaustive research to locate these communities. Buetter personally visited each of the four Blue Zones to meet these remarkable people, observe their lifestyles, and understand what makes them thrive. Following their example, The Blue Zone shows you how to make simple adjustments to your lifestyle that may add years to your life. These easily followed lessons are no longer the secrets of people a world away. In The Blue Zone, they become yours to follow for life!

The author/journalist comes off as extremely rude to me in how he goes about his investigation/interviewing. I did find the book to give a lot of inspiration though. I looked up the Author's TED talk and it was awful and nothing like the points I got out of the book.

I may not always follow what I learn but I love reading and studying nutrition and health topics. And I have a mother who is very nearly a centenarian. So this book is of particular interest.

The author and his researcher cohorts set out to study the secrets of people who live the longest. "Blue Zones" were identified, which are areas of the world that have the greatest concentration of centenarians, people who have reached 100. This book focuses on these Blue Zone locations: Sardinia, Italy, Okinawa, Japan, Loma Linda, California, Ikaria, Greece, and Nicoya, Costa Rica.

Written in a breezy, conversational tone, and filled with stories and anecdotes from the centenarians themselves, some common threads appeared:

1. Eat simple local foods and in the words of Michael Pollan, "Eat mostly plants, not too much". Not strictly vegetarian. Drink alcohol, but, again, not too much.

2. Move a lot, but do it naturally without having to think about it (I.e. no gym rats or marathon runners in the group!). Activity is built into their daily routines.

3. Have a strong sense of purpose, a reason to get up in the morning and contribute to their families and/or communities.

4. Slow down: less stress means less inflammation that can lead to disease. There is a natural rhythm of work, rest, and play (socializing) to their days. And don't worry, be content. The author points out that none of the centenarians are grumps.

5. Participate in a supportive community with strong social connections. Along the same lines, family is a priority. Multiple generations lived together or were close by. The elderly were revered.

There's more to the book than this, there's much more depth and the words of the centarians themselves. For the most part, it's a way of life that is foreign to us in the U.S. and I loved reading about it. There are no guarantees that if you do x, y and z you will live to a healthy ripe old age. But , if nothing else, these principles can certainly add life to your years. The author ends the book with tips and ideas to put the principles in place.

The first time I met Sayoko Ogata, she was wearing the sort of fashionable gear one might expect a young Tokyo executive to take on a safari: hiking boots and cuffed socks, khaki shorts and shirt, and a pith helmet.
