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.

Not useful

There doesn't seem to be a lot of useful information. There's some advise on keeping track of your health but it's the old fashioned way of writing it down. I expected to see specifics about apps to use, specific websites, but everything was very general. There was a lot of "in the future this will happen" and "in the future that will happen". There are a lot of great things happening right now and I expected to get a more in depth review of current technologies. I just didn't think it was useful.
