For years we have been told to make lists and obsessively monitor when we're angry, what we eat, how much we worry, and how often we go to the gym. So why isn't everyone healthy? Now based on the most extensive study of long life ever conducted The Longevity Project reveals what really matters across the long run—the personality traits, relationships, experiences, and career paths that naturally keep you vital.Gathering key new information and using modern research methods to study 1,500 Californians across eight decades, health scientists Dr. Howard S. Friedman and Dr. Leslie R. Martin bust many old dead-end myths. For instance,

  • People do not die from working long hours at a challenging job—many who worked hardest lived the longest
  • Getting and staying married is not the magic ticket to long life, especially if you're a woman
  • It's not the happy-go-lucky who thrive—it's the prudent and persistent who flourish through the years. See why.

    With self-tests that illuminate your own best paths to longer life, and a deeper scientific understanding than we have seen before of the true causes of long-term health, this audio book will change the conversation about what it really takes to optimize your chances for a long, healthy life.
