Bestselling author Buettner (The Blue Zones) is back with a well-organized game plan for a long and well-lived life. Taking what he’s learned from over a decade of studying the so-called Blue Zones—five hot spots across the globe where people enjoy optimal health and vitality well into their 80s, 90s, and as centenarians—Buettner and his colleagues tested whether Blue Zones could be willfully created, targeting communities in California, Iowa, and Minnesota. The results, as reported here, are both impressive and persuasive. Buettner neatly distills the enriching lifestyles, environments, and diets found in each area into small changes anyone can adopt. He also offers intriguing glimpses into other projects in progress and shares more than 80 pages of life-extending recipes designed to be cooked in the average American kitchen. This is a thoughtfully presented and well-written guide from which anyone—no matter where he or she is in the journey to better health—can benefit. Agent: Laurie Liss, Sterling Lord Literistic. (Apr.)
