Living Longer: The heart-mind connection is written for all those who strive for optimal long-term health and the maximal functioning of their hearts and minds. Today's problem for the health-conscious individual is information overload - new health studies pour out almost daily from newspapers, radio stations and television networks. Many of the reports are contradictory and often misleading. In this book, Professor Opie sifts through the available information on the vast number of possible health promotion changes, varying from increased exercise to aspirin to green tea, and diets from Atkins to the vegetarian, with the aim of grading the validity of the evidence, asking questions such as, "Just how true are the studies" and "Just how compelling are the facts they claim"? Living Longer guides the reader through this morass of information with the message that just five key steps taken now will promote long-term health benefits for heart and mind and give protection from future heart disease and brain deterioration.

Living Longer, Living Better is worthy reading for cardiologists and general practitioners to recommend to their patients. * The Lancet *
This book is well written and easy to read. It sets out to dispel the myths or contradictory messages that have previously been given. * British Journal of Cardiac Nursing *
An Amazon search in this category yields over 4,000 titles in this area in the GBP10 to GBP20 price bracket of Opie's living longer, living better . I have not read even a fraction of these, but now feel confident I will not need to as the passion, wisdom and clarity of his view make for excellent reading. Buy this book! * Cardiology News *
With a primary focus on cardiovascular health plus information on fads and supplements, it offers valuable information in a concise, understandable manner. Both practitioners and lay people are the intended audience and both can benefit from an exciting blend of evidence and common sense. It is a credible and understandable review of the often confusing research available on health promotion. People from all walks of life and education can benefit from reading this book. Readers will find themselves unable to argue with the facts, resulting in a growing commitment to change their lifestyles. Better yet, readers may find themselves more confident and determined to take action to improve their own health as well as the health of their clients. 5 stars! * Doody's Reviews *
