Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well - one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies.

Dr. Gundry himself narrates his words. The science behind this plan is comes and he explains it so regular non-scientists can understand it. it just all makes sense.

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life - until the unthinkable happens.

In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman steps into the path of an oncoming bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide? At the center of this puzzle is Adrian Wolfe, a successful architect and grief-stricken widower, who, a year after his third wife's death, begins to investigate the cause. As Adrian looks back on their brief but seemingly happy marriage, disturbing secrets begin to surface. The divorces from his two previous wives had been amicable, or so it seemed; his children, all five of them, were resilient as ever, or so he thought.

Yes, there's a who-done-it story line. The male main character is an anti-hero. The whole book is a little depressing, and kind of drawn out. The reader gets the point long before it ends. But there is a very good message, and it is worth reading.

This was a great story with realistic characters. Unpredictable storyline makes sense. Narration by the author is an added bonus.

I could not finish this book. The narrator trailed off at the end of his sentences and was very difficult to hear. The story itself was repetitive to the point of being very annoying, as the author told us the same things several times over. I finally gave up on hoping that this book was going to get better.
