Best. Book. EVER. However . . .

I absolutely LOVE this book. I've been recommending it to everyone. I would've loved it even more if it came with a supplementary PDF. There's so much great information that I found myself taking a lot of notes. Therein lies the dilemma. After finishing the book I ended up buying the electronic version so I could have it for reference material. I'm also listening a second time because there's so much valuable information and I want to absorb it ALL! This book should be required reading for everyone. It can change your life!! #Audible1

So good I didn’t want it to end!

It was so good, so much information to easily digest and simple enough that you walk away knowing what action to take in your own life. Thank you for such a great read! It’s going to change my life.

Encouraging and Useful Information

I really enjoyed this audio version of the book. Good narration, Buettner summarizes a bit of the information from the Blue Zones book regarding nutrition, then presents different paths of happiness - Pleasure, Purpose and Pride. He goes to several different regions including Denmark, Singapore and Costa Rica.

It was a good read overall, enjoyable. One thing is the Happiness Test in the beginning - it's pretty tough to do the multiple choice quiz via audio. I would have like a pdf companion.
