If it's true that we're only as young as we feel, then it's time to start feeling, looking, and acting younger today.

Only a hundred years ago, people were lucky to live beyond age forty. Now, modern medicine is striving to keep us alive well into our nineties and beyond. But who wants to live a long life without health, vitality, and faculties intact? Quality longevity -- that's what we're striving for. According to Dr. Gary Small, director of the UCLA Center on Aging, it's well within our reach.

Based on his latest scientific discoveries, Dr. Small's Longevity Bible shows us how we can all live longer, stronger, better lives by following simple guidelines, such as cross-training our diets, maintaining a positive attitude, promoting stress-free living, and exercising our bodies and our minds. With his Eight Essential Strategies to help us keep our brains, bodies, and attitudes together, this invaluable book shows us how to live longer, empower ourselves, and remain healthy and fulfilled throughout our lives.

The Longevity Bible provides a comprehensive look at healthy aging and offers practical advice on memory fitness, healthful diet, physical conditioning, satisfying relationships, and stress reduction. It follows the stories of typical readers in different stages of their lives and demonstrates how those lives are improved by following the Essential Strategies. Dr. Small shows us how to:

  • Sharpen our minds
  • Build strength and stamina
  • Safeguard our health with exercise and supplements
  • Create a balanced diet to satisfy hunger and consume fewer calories
  • Master our environments

Scientific evidence indicates that the lifestyle strategies contained in The Longevity Bible can actually increase life expectancy -- making us live longer -- while adding to the quality of those years. So whether we are approaching our forties, fifties, sixties, or beyond, The Longevity Bible can help us face the challenges of aging and reap its rewards.
