From Cameron Diaz, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Body Book, comes a fresh, personal and authoritative examination of the art and science of growing older and a road map for abundant health and resilience as we age.
When Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book, she was on a mission to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health instead of heeding the advice of the latest headline or trend. So she interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists and a host of other experts and then shared what she'd learned with young women everywhere in a comprehensive volume hailed as 'smart', 'brimming with science' and 'the real deal'.
Once again Cameron Diaz is on a mission. But this time she's starting a conversation with her peers on a topic that is virtually taboo in our society: the ageing female body.
In The Longevity Book, she will share everything she's learned about the ageing process from top medical experts and researchers as well as her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences on a topic that is as essential to our health as it is emotionally charged and culturally neglected. The Longevity Book will explore what history, biology, neuroscience and the women's health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our 30s to midlife, from how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the ways ageing effects men and women, from the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline to how meditation heals us and why love, friendship and laughter matter for health.
The Longevity Book will offer an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages - and what we can all do to age better. Cameron offers women a compassionate, informative and intimate tour through the next volume of life.

A great read backed my modern research. This book simplifies the craziness that goes on in our bodies, making it easier to understand and more interesting to read. This book really reinforces the message to love and understand your own body.
"Must read for every woman!"
I loved it! It's informative, but not overwhelming. It's a positive outtake on ageing, on how our bodies change and what can we do to stay strong and healthy. None of that how to look young nonsense. I've recommended it to all my female friends, colleagues and family members.
Informative book. Have docked a star because as with her previous book there are a lot of subtitles. This is fine when reading a hard copy but very annoying listening. There were also a lot of names & their jobs & where they worked accreditations throughout the book. Again fine for reading yourself but very tedious listening to. They should have all been saved to the end of the book as a The author would like to thank. . But niggles aside an educational well narrated book.
"Nothing said that has not been said before"
Might be expectation is too high or read too much about the subject in general, but nothing new was said. I picked this book as had great reviews and i was offered for free. I wish i picked the Chimp Paradox now. The audible itself cant be faulted, nicely articulated and easily understood. For me the downside was the content.
A great book filled with scientific information, I'm 27 and throughly enjoyed listening to the book.
"Great, quick, listen"
I listened to this in a few days with a delay at an airport. The information is technical enough, but not overly so and the information inside is very helpful. I am hurtling towards being 40 in a few years and this has provided a really nice reminder that I am lucky to be here, strong, healthy and happy. I would recommend this book for a reminder to get rest, eat well and love dearly.
"Great read for those of us finding grey hairs!"
I have both & I've loved listening to it ... I'm not sure whether I would have found the time to read it!
Cameron's Body Book - which I read before this one - makes a great starting point for this follow.
I'm not sure it compares to anything else I've read - so much info to take in!
Yes - it made me smile a lot and it has made me re-think my lifestyle!!
Highly recommended for all women - regardless of age - I will be giving it to my daughter so that she can start preparing & nurturing her body for all the stages of her life!
extremely well written and life changing, best book I have read this year with out a doubt!!!
