What to Read to Be Well and Happy

People who read books live longer. People who read books about aging well and happy may live longer, feel better, and have more fun. We don’t have the science to back that up — but we think it’s a good guess.

Mindful Aging Cover

Mindful Aging, by Andrea Brandt

Don’t let the feeling of irrelevance take hold. Control how you grow older with good advice from psychotherapist and aging expert Andrea Brandt.

Younger Cover

Younger, by Dr. Sara Gottfried

You are not your genes. The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices. Make better choices, live a better life. Dr. Sara Gottfried explains.

Choosing the StrongPath Cover

Choosing the StrongPath, by Fred Bartlit, Steven Droullard, and Marni Boppart

The expert authors want you to know: You don’t have to fall apart as you get older. Pick up this book and then pick up some weights and you’ll live a stronger, healthier life.

The Aging Brain Cover

The Aging Brain, by Dr. Timothy Jennings

Solid science is the basis of the interventions explained in Dr. Timothy Jennings’ book on keeping the brain sharp, the body healthy, and the wolf of dementia away from the door. It’s good for caregivers of those at risk, too.

Longevity Book Cover

Cameron Diaz’s Longevity Book is beautifully illustrated and thoroughly engaging. It explores how and why we age, including information on the history, biology, and neuroscience of maintaining optimal health while transitioning into middle age.

Healthy Aging Cover

No, you can’t turn back the clock, says Dr. Andrew Weil in his practical and uplifting book. But you can use his timeless best-seller as a guide to keeping your mind and body strong and healthy through a combination of diet, activity, and attitude.

Aging With Grace Cover

Aging With Grace, by David Snowdon

So much about aging with grace is found in the fascinating “Nun Study” conducted by author David Snowdon. In 1986, he conducted revolutionary research that resulted in groundbreaking findings about Alzheimer’s, genetics, attitude, faith, and the role of community in our later years.

Secrets of Longevity Cover

Goddesses Never Age Cover

Goddesses Never Age, by Dr. Christiane Northrup

In her book, Northrup disrupts the notion of an inevitable decline in health, looks, and sexual relationships, and lays out the principles of ageless living. She guides you through rejecting processed foods and releasing stuck emotions, aiming to help you embrace well-being and sensuality.

French Women Don't Get Facelifts Cover

French Women Don’t Get Facelifts, by Mireille Guiliano

Telomere Effect cover

The Telomere Effect, by Elizabeth Blackburn and Elissa Epel

Sleep quality, exercise, diet, and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres. Chronic stress, negative thoughts, strained relationships, and even living in the wrong neighborhood can eat away at them. What are telomeres? We didn’t know either until we read this book.

Anatomy of the Spirit cover

Anatomy of the Spirit, by Caroline Myss

Caroline Myss is a “medical intuitive,” which mean she uses powers of intuition to determine the causes of physical and mental disturbances. Her book explains human energy, including physical energy and emotional energy, and how everything is connected.

Life Reimagined by Barbara Bradley Hagerty

Life Reimagined, by Barbara Bradley Hagerty

Barbara Bradley Hagerty pauses “to evaluate how to move forward in life.” Letting neurology, psychology, biology, genetics, and sociology — as well as her own experiences — inform her, she redraws the map and plots a new course of midlife renewal and refocus.
