Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity

Updated: Apr 16, 2023

Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity is a new book by Dr. Peter Attia, a physician and longevity expert, and Bill Gifford, a journalist and author. The book is a comprehensive guide to living longer and better, based on the latest scientific evidence and Dr. Attia's personal experience. The book challenges the conventional medical thinking on aging and proposes a new approach to preventing and treating the diseases that kill most people: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and type 2 diabetes.

The book argues that mainstream medicine has failed to make much progress against these diseases because it intervenes too late, when the damage is already done. Instead of focusing on extending lifespan at the expense of healthspan, or quality of life, Dr. Attia advocates for a personalized, proactive strategy for longevity, where we take action now to optimize our physical, cognitive, and emotional health. He calls this strategy "the science and art of longevity", because it combines rigorous scientific data with individual preferences and values.

The book covers a wide range of topics related to longevity, such as:

- The biology of aging and how it affects our cells, organs, and systems

- The four pillars of longevity: nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management

- The role of hormones, supplements, fasting, and other interventions in modulating aging

- The importance of mental health, emotional resilience, and social connection in aging well

- The ethical and philosophical implications of living longer and better

The book is not a one-size-fits-all prescription, but rather a framework for helping readers learn how to think about their own long-term health and create the best plan for themselves. Dr. Attia shares his own journey of transforming his health and lifestyle, as well as stories of his patients and colleagues who have achieved remarkable results. He also addresses common myths and misconceptions about aging and longevity, and provides practical tips and tools for implementing his recommendations.

Outlive is a groundbreaking manifesto that will inspire and empower readers to take charge of their own longevity and live better longer.
