Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity by Peter Attia MD

May 29, 2023


In this New York Times best seller Peter Attia MD uses science to give us insight on how to take control of your health and longevity, through personalized approaches and tools for optimization of nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Outlive is a working manual for extending a life of quality.

“For all its successes, mainstream medicine has failed to make much progress against the diseases of aging that kill most people: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and type 2 diabetes. Too often, it intervenes with treatments too late to help, prolonging lifespan at the expense of healthspan, or quality of life. Dr. Attia believes we must replace this outdated framework with a personalized, proactive strategy for longevity, one where we take action now, rather than waiting.

This is not “biohacking,” it’s science: a well-founded strategic and tactical approach to extending lifespan while also improving our physical, cognitive, and emotional health. Dr. Attia’s aim is less to tell you what to do and more to help you learn how to think about long-term health, in order to create the best plan for you as an individual.” – Peter Attia MD
