Secrets of the Superyoung: The Scientific Reasons Some People Look Ten Years Younger Than They Really Are--and how You Can, Too
From the authors of Eccentric, comes a study of age-defying people the world over with lessons on ways to look and feel younger than your years.
You attend your twenty-fifth class reunion and almost everyone looks a bit older, rounder, and more wrinkled. But then there are a few enviable exceptions who are smooth-skinned, lithe, and bright-eyed. Who are they and what makes them look so much younger than their chronological age? According to Dr. David Weeks, who is drawing on eighteen years of scientific research, they are the "superyoung" -- men and women who, on average, appear to be ten years younger than their actual age. In addition to looking youthful, these phenomenons share a host of similarities, including: enjoying better sex lives, traveling more, and watching less television than the rest of us. More than just a thorough examination of this desirable group, Secrets of the Superyoung offers a prescriptive lesson -- with tips on improving memory, fitness, and diet.
With case studies, quizzes, and exclusive interviews with celebrity superyoung like Ben Bradlee, Angela Lansbury, and Jack LaLanne, Dr. David Weeks provides a fully documented study that paves a visible footpath to staying younger in body and mind.
