Forever Young

Longevity and You
Here's a few additions to the growing canon of consumer health and popular science titles about how to achieve good health and a longer life.

Oprah guru Bob Greene's latest, 20 Years Younger, offers plenty of sage advice on how to look better, feel better, and age gracefully.

Also try The Longevity Project : Surprising Discoveries for Health and Long Life from the Landmark Eight-Decade Study by Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin. The authors examine an eight-decade-long study of 1,500 people; surprising conclusions abound.

Fans of scientific adventures will enjoy Long for This World : The Strange Science of Immortality by Pulitzer winner Jonathan Weiner.  Learn about cutting-edge research and explore the questions "Could we live forever? And if we could--would we want to?"
