How to Live Forever tackles the phenomenon of today’s shift in age demographics through the lens of generativity.

Dr. Dobos shares with us the same techniques he shares with his patients in order to make life more liveable.
The Longevity Diet outlines a healthy, easy to follow, eating plan combined with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet (FMD). Dr. Longo, a biogerontologist and cell biologist, explains how specific diets can dramatically activate stem cells and promote regeneration & rejuvenation in multiple organs - thus reducing the risk of age-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.
Laura Carstensen, longevity and aging expert from Stanford University focuses on a long, bright future and the positive dimension of the fact that we are going to live longer then our previous generations. It’s time to redefine aging and retirement models that embrace this new reality.
This book tackles the question of chronological age versus biological age while giving readers the means to calculate and change the rate at which their cardiovascular and immune systems decline. In RealAge, Dr. Michael Roizen, an anesthesiologist and chief wellness officer at Cleveland Clinic, combined research from over 25,000 studies to evaluate what factors determine aging and its prevention. Throughout the book, the reader is given ways to calculate their biological age and over 100 different techniques (including vitamin supplements, exercise, diets) to improve the chances of reducing the effects of aging. It is backed up by research outlined with charts, fact sheets, and the personal benefits to be found within the data.
With laser-like focus targeted on heart disease, this book is the result of a 20-year study carried out by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic.

Not only are we given an understanding of how to avoid these issues, but also we are treated to over 150 recipes with which to apply the knowledge clearly laid out.
Alex Zhavoronkov is a leading expert in aging research and biogerontology. His book presents a great introduction to the progress science has already made in aging research. It also paints an interesting picture of how the world might evolve if we live longer, allowing people to continue working and contribute to the economy. He emphasizes the importance of scientific progress, while stressing the importance of prioritizing health and knowledge assets over material assets and maintaining a youthful social network as ways of preparing for a longer life.
