My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this a lot more then I thought it would.

Recommended to me by a friend interested in personal self improvement activities–most of which I personally consider selfish–I thought this would be a how to live to 100 diet book; but instead it is a curious overview of weird research technics, solid interviews, and playful observations.

The author reviews and makes science claims in a very interesting way–mostly using science the way it was intended which is refreshing.

The characters are amazing, the other researchers fascinating, and the findings largely common sensical and irrelevant.

Like Chatwin’s Patagonia this is a very good book on people.
