From the Publisher:

Note: The following Library Journal review compared Longevity Made Simple: How to Add 20 Good Years to Your Life to the book You: Staying Young by Mehmet Oz, MD, and Michael F. Roizen, MD

"These two titles...examine the current thinking in the field and outline plans for maintaining vigor well into the eighties and even beyond....Flanigan (cardiology, Univ. of Colorado Health Sciences Ctr.) and Sawyer (codirector, Heart and Health Prevention Ctr.) are more straightforward and economical in style, zeroing in on the ten most deadly diseases (e.g., heart disease) and how to elude them. Flanigan and Sawyer's title [Longevity Made Simple] is the more accessible of the two..."
