WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report today unveiled its first ebook, a guide on how to live to 100, featuring chapters on health, happiness, and personal finance. The ebook can be purchased at money.usnews.com/liveto100.
Interest in living a long and healthy life has grown as Americans have added an average of three decades to their lifespans since 1900; the average American can now expect to live to age 78. What's less clear is how to maximize the chances of doing so. In How to Live to 100, U.S. News draws on the latest research from top experts throughout the country to help readers understand what they can do to increase their own chances of living a long, healthy, and happy life.
Featuring chapters on the latest scientific advances, the best exercises for every age, longevity diets, happiness secrets, and how to save enough money, How to Live to 100 gives readers a personalized guide to their own longevity. Three checklists, on Health, Happiness, and Money, also provide an overview of action items, featuring suggestions such as flossing daily, eating no more than 18 ounces of red meat a week, cultivating a vigorous savings plan, and building close relationships.
"Planning for a long life has never been more important," says U.S. News Editor Brian Kelly. "Our goal is to help people make the best choices for themselves when it comes to their health, happiness, and money."
