The Intent: provide a great summary of well documented findings across a variety of fields. I think the title makes that clear, and I really enjoyed it.
Unlike most health, and self-help books, this isn't filled with pages of the writer's own opinions, the latest fad that you'll quickly forget by next year, or in some cases outright quackery as most texts are.
This is a collection of methodically researched findings, by 1000s of other scientists and studies, compiled in to an easy to digest, short book, that can be read quickly by anyone.
It's like Cliff's Notes for a healthy life. It's a wonderful book.
Dr Agus, is an ivy league trained cancer doc that saves peoples lives everyday.
This book is small in size and in writing, however, I like that because it is almost like a quick guide to extending your life.
It is a quick read and there were some concepts I had not considered and have now implemented.
The good thing about Dr Agus, is he does not give you his opinion. He only gives you facts based on real studies, and another thing I like he does not dig into the scientific details that make your eyes water with bordeom.
Overall good buy.
There may be things you disagree with, but he backs up everything he says with empirical studies, so while you may believe whole heartedly in vitamin supplements (and a huge industry depends on that) you may be throwing your money away and harming your health. (Confession: I still take some supplements since blood tests show I am not getting what I need from my diet, that may change as my diet has now changed )
