The New York Times bestselling book of simple rules everyone should follow in order to live a long, healthy life, featuring illustrations throughout, from the author of The End of Illness.

In his international bestseller, The End of Illness, Dr. David B. Agus shared what he has learned from his work as a pioneering cancer doctor, revealing the innovative steps he takes to prolong the lives of not only cancer patients, but all those who want to enjoy a vigorous, lengthy life. Now Dr. Agus has turned his research into a practical and concise illustrated handbook for everyday living.

A Short Guide to a Long Life is divided into three sections (What to Do, What to Avoid, and Doctor’s Orders) that provide the definitive answers to many common and not-so-common questions: Who should take a baby aspirin daily? Are flu shots safe? What constitutes “healthy” foods? Are airport scanners hazardous? Dr. Agus believes optimal health begins with our daily routines. His book will help you develop new patterns of personal health care, using inexpensive and widely available tools that are based on the latest and most reliable science.

An accessible and essential handbook for preparing for visits to the doctor and maintaining control of your future, “A Short Guide to a Long Life explores the simple idea that a healthy tomorrow starts with good habits today” (Fortune).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unremarkable little handbook Read his first book "The End of Illness" which I truly enjoyed and continue to refer back to.  This new book is entirely different!  A simple little pocket manual with tidbits of health and life tips (ie. get the flu shot; throw away your vitamins, etc).  Somewhat unremarkable content and general advice that you can probably find on a reasonable website.  Most of the tips run a couple of pages so you can open the book at any page and pick up some info.  Is it worth $21.00?? Not so sure.  Could be one of those titles that end up in the Chapters discount bin.
