Cameron Diaz follows up her #1 New York Times bestseller,
The Body Book, with a personal, practical, and authoritative
guide that examines the art and science of growing older and
offers concrete steps women can take to create abundant
health and resilience as they age.
Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book to help educate young women
about how their bodies function, empowering them to make
better-informed choices about their health and encouraging
them to look beyond the latest health trends to understand
their bodies at the cellular level. She interviewed doctors,
scientists, nutritionists, and a host of other experts, and
shared what she’d learned—and what she wished she’d known
twenty years earlier.
Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a
conversation with her peers on an essential topic that that
for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female
body. In The Longevity Book, she shares the latest
scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing
insights from top medical experts and with her own thoughts,
opinions, and experiences.
The Longevity Book explores what history, biology,
neuroscience, and the women’s health movement can teach us
about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our
thirties to midlife. From understanding how growing older
impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences
in the way aging effects men and women; the latest science
on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline to
how meditation heals us and why love, friendship, and
laughter matter for health, The Longevity Book offers an
all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body
ages—and what we can all do to age better.
