Description
Written by two psychologists who specialize in the relationship between psychology and health, this landmark study upends the advice we have been given about how to live to a healthy old age. For example, they reveal that people do not die from working long hours at a challenging job—many who worked the hardest lived the longest. Getting and staying married is not the magic ticket to long life, especially if you're a woman. And it's not the happy-go-lucky ones who thrive—it's the prudent and persistent who flourish through the years. Based on the most extensive study of longevity ever conducted, The Longevity Project exposes what really impacts our lifespan—including friends, family, personality, and work.

"In this illuminating addition to the burgeoning bookshelf on longevity, University of California, Riverside, health researchers [Howard] Friedman and [Leslie] Martin draw on an eight-decade-long Stanford University study of 1,500 people to find surprising lessons about who lives a long, healthy life and why.... If there's a secret to old age, the authors find, it's living conscientiously and bringing forethought, planning, and perseverance to one's professional and personal life. Individual life stories show how different people find the right balance in different ways, depending on their personalities and social situations. Lively despite the huge volume of material from 80 years of study, and packed with eye-opening self-assessment tests, this book says there's no magic pill, but does offer a generous dose of hope: even if life deals you a less than perfect hand, you're not doomed to an early demise if you live with purpose and make connections with the people around you."—Publishers Weekly
