“World-renowned explorer Dan Buettner and his team of researchers have traveled across the globe to investigate five hot spots of human health and vitality known as “blue zones.” Along the way, they’ve met locals teeming with vigor at age 100 and beyond who have shared their secrets to a long life. By studying the diets, lifestyles, and cultures of these elders, Buettner and his crew of top demographers, scientists, and physicians created a cross-cultural blueprint for living longer. “We know there’s a recipe for longevity and that 75% is related to lifestyle,” Buettner says. “And we’re figuring it out.” He’ll transport you to these zones with dynamic National Geographic images and inspiring stories, and he’ll leave you with a simple formula that reveals how you can add up to eight good years to your life!"
