"One of the world's leading doctors and bestselling author presents the simple rules everyone should follow in order to live a long, healthy, and productive life.In his #1 New York Times bestselling book, The End of Illness, Dr. David B. Agus shared what he had learned from his work as one of today's most prominent cancer doctors and researchers, revealing the risks he takes in a field begging for innovations that can prolong not only the lives of cancer patients but anyone hoping to live long and robustly. Now Dr. Agus has turned his analysis into a practical and fun illustrated health guide for everyday living. Hailed by Vice President Al Gore as having developed "a dramatic new way that could lead to greatly improving the quality of life for millions, starting right now," Dr. Agus believes that our foundation for optimal health begins with the daily habits we keep--and that we can build upon that bedrock with inexpensive, widely accessible drugs that have been proven to work while ditching false promises, such as vitamins and supplements. A Short Guide to a Long Life is divided into three sections (What to Do, What to Avoid, and Doctor's Orders) that provide the definitive answers to many common and not-so-common questions: Who should take a baby aspirin daily? Are flu shots safe? Are vitamins bad for you? What is truly "fresh" produce? Why is it important to protect your senses? Are airport scanners hazardous? Dr. Agus' eye-opening responses will help you develop new, effective patterns of personal health care so you can maintain your health using the latest and most reliable science.

Yes, I liked it. I pulled the Short Guide from the best seller shelf at the library for both the information and the format. Organizing advice in short chapters really works and I want to use this structure for a book project of my own. While little of the information was new, I appreciate the accessible reminder Agus provides.

You'll know you have the copy I read if page 87 is already folded. I marked it for reference as the one example that made me snort aloud. Agus establishes the credibility of his data with preliminary reference to medical studies and proceeds in a matter-of-fact, common-sense tone. Then comes page 87 in the "Be Positive" chapter.

"There are many ways you can boost your positive outlook. ...All you need is a system that helps you to put even indescribable suffering into a wider context and tap into awareness of yourself." Yes, in a paragraph, that is all you need!

As I work on writing a short book myself, I will remember this passage with fondness. I'm prone to over think and over explain as I write. Thank you Dr. Agus. Your example helps me relax and realize that occasionally, summary statements are all you need. ( )

As advertised a short but info packed book on a wide range of health topics that everyone can use to enhance their well being. Dr. Agus shares his knowledge and insight to avoid the bad influences on your health; and there are many. He likewise offers tips and approaches to do much good and the shoulds and shouldn'ts when it comes to everything healthy. A worthwhile read that is concise and to the point. ( )

A short beginners guide to healthy living and longevity and anti aging. This is done with hundreds of tips and ideas one on each page. Many are just common sense and this is a beginner level. Having read hundreds of health books I disagree on the Doctors take on not using vitamins. ( )

Well-written and brief, but the advice is all mainstream, conventional, and ignoring of the complexities of health. An easy read, but not worth the trouble unless you're a smoking, overweight, alcoholic to whom almost any change would improve your health. ( )

This short book attempts to answer some of the most common health questions.

What should I eat? Real food (that does not come with a label). Understand basic bio-vocabulary; know the difference between vitamin and supplement, or define inflammation. Consider getting a dog; it will force you to get some exercise, along with leaving your desk and forgetting about multi-tasking. There seem to be a million different diets available. Find the diet that works for you, and stick with it. Grow a garden (or, at least, a window box). Practice good hygiene. Maintain a healthy weight. Caffeine is OK in sensible amounts. Consider getting a DNA test.

Get in the habit of taking a baby aspirin daily. Be smart about being sick. Maintain good posture and strengthen your core. Adopt a positive attitude. Smile. Try an activity that is out of your comfort zone. Eat at least three servings of cold-water fish per week. Never skip breakfast. It's a good idea to be a little obsessive-compulsive about washing your hands. There is no such thing as doing it too often. There is no shame in asking for help.

The book also includes things that should be avoided. They include: fad diets, detoxes, dangerous sports and risky behavior, sunburns, airport x-ray scanners, insomnia, juicing, smoking and vitamins and supplements (!)

No one is expected to immediately do (or not do) everything in this book. Pick just one thing, incorporate it into your daily life so that it becomes a habit, then pick another. Anyone who cannot find just one health aid here needs more help than this book can provide. For everyone else, this book is short, very easy to understand, and very much worth reading. ( )
