Overview

The Longevity Strategy: How to Live to 100 Using the Brain-Body Connection by David Mahoney

A wise and compelling guide . . . the true fountain of youth.--Dr. Stephen R. Covey author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The acclaimed life plan for good health, fulfilling relationships, and financial security

The brain-body connection is the interaction among three factors: the health of your brain, your attitude, and your physical health. In this breakthrough guide to a longer, better life, authors David Mahoney and Richard Restak, M.D., draw on state-of-the-art brain-body research to demonstrate the vital importance of handling stress properly, lifelong education and mental activity (use it or lose it!), the social connection, physical exercise, and rearranging your brain's hardwiring toward optimism. Featuring 31 practical, essential tactics, The Longevity Strategy is a user's manual for the best years of your life.

"This book brings us good news: the more we use our brains, the more likely we need not retire." -- James Watson, Ph.D., winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine

"I learned the hard way about the validity of the brain-body connection. The Longevity Strategy will make it a great deal easier for you to learn just what it means, too."--Mike Wallace

"Superb . . . chock full of practical scientific knowledge that can help one become and stay healthy, wealthy, and wise."--Bart Kosko, Ph.D., author of Fuzzy Thinking

"Intelligent, witty, and informative."--Leon Cooper, Ph.D., winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics
