So you want to live forever? Do you really? What good is living forever if your body has failed you, or your mind no longer functions? In Chasing Life, Dr. Sanjay Gupta might not tell you how to achieve immortality, but he does offer some sound advice on how to add a few extra years to your life. Most important, he explains how you can do this, while at the same time ensure that your mind stays sharp, and your body healthy.

Gupta is a neurosurgeon at Emory University Hospital and he is the Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN. Making use of his years of medical experience and work as a journalist, Gupta brings to this audiobook a wealth of information garnered from the latest research, new medical breakthroughs, and years of empirical evidence. This audiobook is also filled with the personal stories of people whose actions and experiences give credence to the advice offered in this book. In short, Chasing Life is a guide to functional aging, which means that you maintain an active lifestyle and have a healthy body.

You may have already heard of some of the information in this audiobook (which is read by the author), such as the theory that by eating less you will live longer, or that dietary supplements are really a waste of money and may in fact be causing harm. But, do you know why? Throughout this useful audiobook, Gupta not only offers advice, but he explains the reasoning behind his recommendations.

No matter what your age, Chasing Life is a life changing audiobook! Gupta's advice is clear and practical and even incorporating a few of his suggestions has the possibility of having a dramatic impact on your life. The top three tips that I distilled from this book were: eat less, move more, and exercise your brain - seems quite easy to me, so why not give it a try, after all you have nothing to loose and so much to gain!
