Publisher's Summary

Dan Buettner, the New York Times best-selling author of The Blue Zones, lays out a proven plan to maximize your health based on the practices of the world's healthiest people. For the first time, Buettner reveals how to transform your health using smart eating and lifestyle habits gleaned from new research on the diets, eating habits, and lifestyle practices of the communities he's identified as "Blue Zones" - those places with the world's longest-lived and thus healthiest people.

With this audiobook's audacious belief that the lifestyles of the world's Blue Zones could be adapted and replicated in towns across North America, you'll be inspired by the specific stories of the people, foods, and routines of our healthy elders; understand the role community, family, and naturally healthy habits can play to improve our diet and health; and learn the exact foods - including the fifty superfoods of longevity and dozens of recipes adapted for Western tastes and markets - that offer delicious ways to eat your way to optimum health.

Filled with moving personal stories, delicious recipes, checklists, and useful tips that will transform any home into a miniature blue zone, The Blue Zones Solution is the ultimate blueprint for a healthy, happy life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Good Info, Well Presented"
    What made the experience of listening to The Blue Zones Solution the most enjoyable?

    Though this is a non-fiction book, it is presented as a series of stories that made it enjoyable to listen with good actionable information, not just a bunch of statistics.


    Any additional comments?

    Some people are giving bad reviews because they can't find the attached reference material and recipes. They should consider reading the description and downloading the companion PDF before giving a bad review because they apparently would rather complain than read actual words to see that the PDF is in their library.

    "Average"

    Good book for someone starting to think about diet. Mainly for the American society. Nice little details about combinations of different ingredients, mainly vegetables.

    Story
    "Super insightful!!"

    Enjoyed the narrator, really believed that he actually really knew what he was talking about. My family and I will be incorporating a number of the rules associated with this book. I have already recommended this book to a number of people. A book like this should Inspire Americans to realize what's wrong with our diet. Obesity and cancer rates have grown so high something must be done.

    Story
    "Eat well, stay active, belong"

    In short, the blue zones presents evidence and examples of things we already knew. Eat real food from the earth and avoiding overly processed goods. Stay active in your day to day life. Office jobs probably take 10 years off a man's life. Belong to community that is positive and supports you. A community that reinforces these positive habits and you'll live a long and healthy life.

    Story
    "A keeper"
    What did you love best about The Blue Zones Solution?

    I was impressed that the author went to the source-the people who have made it to be centenarians and beyond, and combined their first-hand accounts with the science of longevity.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ideas for putting the information into action in your own personal life.


    What about Joe Barrett’s performance did you like?

    Very easy to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No

    "The book is great and eye opening."

    This is a must read for people seeking to improve their lives. Since I read this book I want to eat beans, think of chores as a good thing, and retire in a blue zone area.

    Story
    "Love the Premise, Mediocre Excution."

    The premise of this book - the exploration of health and longevity in blue zones- is fascinating to me. But I find the author's writing style pokey and uninspired, and the narration reminds me of watching a film in a high school biology class - In the 80s! I enjoy researching health and wellness topics and I really wanted to like this book, but I just did not find that spark I was expecting. I also share the opinion that others have had here about the author's picture on the cover. A strange choice that somehow rounds out the mediocrity of the whole enterprise for me. I will look to other sources for information on Blue Zones.
