New York Times bestseller

Cameron Diaz follows up her #1 New York Times bestseller, The Body Book, with a personal, practical, and authoritative guide that examines the art and science of growing older and offers concrete steps women can take to create abundant health and resilience as they age.

Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health and encouraging them to look beyond the latest health trends to understand their bodies at the cellular level. She interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists, and a host of other experts, and shared what she’d learned—and what she wished she’d known twenty years earlier.

Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a conversation with her peers on an essential topic that that for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female body. In The Longevity Book, she shares the latest scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing insights from top medical experts and with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences.

The Longevity Book explores what history, biology, neuroscience, and the women’s health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our thirties to midlife. From understanding how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the way aging effects men and women; the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline to how meditation heals us and why love, friendship, and laughter matter for health, The Longevity Book offers an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages—and what we can all do to age better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from did not enjoy as much as first book felt this book was too much history, not enough helpful hints and information I could put into practise. Really enjoyed her first book - this one not as much :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked it This book was a little different. I was hoping it would talk more about Cameron's struggles than what it did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starting The Discussion I had read her "Body Book" and found this one more informative. This book felt like it was targeted to women closer to my age. I enjoy books about the body and found most of it easy to understand but there might be a few people who find it complicated. I did like that the discussion about the transition of menopause has been started and that more people are talking about it. The more we talk and learn the better it will be for women in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Textbook The first half of the book was great, it was a similar writing style and language to The Body Book, but about half way through it becomes extremely research heavy with words that non-medical professionals would struggle to understand. It felt like I was reading a textbook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than her first Her first book read like a pamphlet for a teenager. But a friend picked this up for me and I was pleasantly surprised. A great way to learn that it is never too late to change your lifestyle for the better

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good read! After reading, The Body Book by Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bark, I knew I wanted to read this book. I really enjoyed reading The Body Book but I feel like the focus in that novel was largely on nutrition and fitness. With this novel, as much of both of those do have a huge component on longevity in life, I found the information provided was expanded to a more holistic outlook of the whole body. This book was very informative, scientific, and I believe well-researched (I'm not a researcher so I can't be sure how well researched). The content was serious but I did not find it overly intimidating or scary which can be a possibility at looking at the discourse that can come with aging. Overall, I really liked this book and I would recommend it to others who are aware and try to look after their health. Even others who are making that first step in trying to now make better changes. I really liked the fact that this book wasn't about "anti-aging". Society as a whole can sometimes focus on youth and superficial beauty and look down at the aging process when in reality, aging is gift. You have been given the gift to live more. Some do not have that gift so it seems silly to me that we can become so obsessed on superficial beauty and get upset about wrinkles or the visual changes to show your age. This was a good book to read to encourage others to accept and embrace their age and look at the beauty in the experiences that they have had. I'm hoping that this dynamic duo (Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bark) have more books in the works because I certainly will read them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Surprising I thought it was going to be another celebrity book that was made quickly and for profit, but this book is actually very nice to read and makes you think about a lot of things.

“Brilliant... What I love about The Longevity Book is that it is not an anti-aging book.... It’s about not being afraid of it and owning your age.”
