Publisher's Summary

Why do some people age in failing health and sadness, while others grow old with vitality and joy? In this revolutionary audiobook, best-selling author John Robbins presents us with a bold new paradigm of aging, showing us how we can increase not only our lifespan but also our health span. Through the example of four very different cultures that have the distinction of producing some of the world's healthiest, oldest people, Robbins reveals the secrets for living an extended and fulfilling life in which our later years become a period of wisdom, vitality, and happiness. Bringing the traditions of these cultures together with the latest breakthroughs in medical science, Robbins reveals that, remarkably, they both point in the same direction.

Changed my life

If you could sum up Healthy at 100 in three words, what would they be?

Live like an Okinawan. This book shows you how to live like the healthiest people in the world (and shocker it's not Americans). It's a great look at different cultures and how our health is tied to what we eat and how we live.

What other book might you compare Healthy at 100 to and why?

The China study and The Food Revolution are two other great books to read with a similar theme.

Any additional comments?

This is the best book I have ever read. It has changed the way I eat, exercise, and live. I am stronger, faster, and healthier than I have ever been. It may not have that dramatic of an impact on everyone but it should make you rethink everything you put in your mouth from now on.

Changed my Life

I recommend this book often. I've listened to it twice and it really did help change my habits. I was a vegetarian of 20 years who lived on Mac & Cheese. I keep a lot of the wisdom from this book with me. I think Robbins makes this advice practical and accessible to everyone. My favorite thing though is the background research he did and the examples of people from other cultures.
