Longevity Made Simple: How to Add 20 Good Years to Your Life — Lessons from Decades of Research
by Richard J. Flanigan and Kate Flanigan Sawyer

Book Review by Richard L. Weaver II, PhD.

Flanigan and Flanigan Sawyer (Richard’s daughter) offer not only the health threats but strategies readers can use to lead happier, healthier, longer lives. From these doctors you get both scientific research and professional experience. There are 15 pages of notes, a complete index, and 17 pages of recipes. The thesis of the book is that we are genetically capable of living to about 85 years of age. It is, however, the choices we make in what we eat and how we take care of ourselves that add or subtract years, even decades, from that age. Their basic advice involves: 1) Lower cholesterol, 2) Lower Blood Pressure, 3) Avoid Tobacco, 4) Eat a diet rich in fish, fruit and vegetables, 5) Get exercise, 6) Maintain a healthy weight, 7) Prevent accidents, 8) Drink alcohol (daily in small amounts), 9) Take aspirin, and 10) Take a multivitamin. This book should become your bible for living a long, healthy life. It is a great guide, a wonderful reference book, and makes a terrific gift.


Through our reading, researching, and writing, And Then Some Publishing (and our extended family of readers) mine volumes of books representing a wide variety of tastes. We use the books in our writing, test and try suggested techniques, and we read for enjoyment as well. We wouldn't spend the time reviewing the books if we didn't get something out of it.
