Promising but over promises
This is an interesting book and a nice overview of modern health science and medicine. But it's promise to provide useable knowledge about how to extend life and health in "the lucky years" isn't really borne out. It's aspirational and points to coming developments in stem cell treatments and personalized medicine. But those parts of the book are a small fraction of the total. In short, I expected a lot more detailed manual on how personal habits and knowledge combined with recent medical breakthroughs would allow me to reasonably expect to dramatically increase my life span and my quality of life. And this the book doesn't do.

Waste
I was so looking forward to getting the most up to date information and using it to create a plan for good health. Instead I got the same old ideas wrapped up in lots of boring research. Eat well, sleep well, take aspirin, take a station and live a long time. Heard this information for years.

More of textbook on studies and the future of medicine...Reread A Short Guide to a Long Life Instead
I bought this hoping for an update or additional information on healthy living. That's not really what this book is about. I would say this is more textbook than anything. It talks about studies and the direction and future of medicine, not really anything new about healthy living. if you read "A Short Guide to a Long Life" there is really no new information from this book. The book is fine from an education standpoint, but not a stand alone book about personal health.

Great information!
An excellent, in-depth,optimistic book on health, disease, and healthy lifestyle habits. What I especially enjoyed was that Dr. Agus explained why things are healthy or not, and how things interact in the body. For me, it's not enough to know that something is healthy or not; I need to know the whys. Fascinating and inspiring. A good read with lots of healthy tips and inspiring information on the strides medicine is making and the potential cures in the works.

Book starts off really well - and references a number of recent findings that are relevant. References are well documented etc. However, it gets quite preachy and unfocused towards the end. Might have been better for the author to end on a more practical note than "know thyself".

The Luck Years book by Dr. David Agus
I have recently been diagnosed with cancer, and I saw Dr. Agus on a talk show, and he was so interesting that I wanted to buy his book. This book is so full of information, and I have learned so much about cancer that I never knew, and that information is going to help me when discussing my treatment with my Doctor. I would advise everyone, whether healthy or sick, yo read this book. It is so informative, and I'm passing it down to my daughter to read, in order to help with prevention in her generation.

Lucky Years a potential life changing read
Dr Agus shares with us scientific discoveries relative to aging, causation of cancer and heart disease among other maladies which affect us as we grow older. The emphasis is on prevention and what can be accomplished with exercise, proper sleep, and diet to mention a few. One can be assured that the information is based on rigorous carefully controlled studies. This is an important book for those in mid life and beyond .

Great book -- review from an MD
i am a physician and i find dr agus's books informative and easy to read. he applies the concepts of research to actual day to day living. I'm a huge fan. I refer to his book multiple times a day when speaking with patients in my practice and I also try to follow his advice personally. Great book.
