Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author David Agus unveils the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before, and doctors can fine-tune strategies and weapons to prevent illness.
In his first best seller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In this book he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive, giving you the keys to the new kingdom of wellness.
Medicine is undergoing rapid change. In the old world, you followed general principles, and doctors treated you based on broad, one-size-fits-all solutions. In this new golden age, you'll be able to take full advantage of the latest scientific findings and leverage the power of technology to customize your care. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs - without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine - will benefit. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs to take to optimize health with zero side effects.
That's the picture of the future that you can enter starting today. Welcome to The Lucky Years.

Just ok

This book talks a lot about the "future" starting many statements with "In the future..." The thing is it really does not provide much practical advice! Here's the summary then you can skip the whole book. Exercise, touching, sleep are good. Baby aspirin and statins are maybe good. Sitting around all day, smoking, and not getting enough sleep are bad....nothing life changing presented in this material.
