There is a theme to this book. How to review, identify, note and action -your- health. How your health "metrics", once discovered, can help plot your strengths and weaknesses for your body. How taking these steps, with advancements in medicine, may just keep you going a few more years in the long-term.
This is a main theme. However, this is heavily complimented with pioneering research in Proteomics and Genomics. These areas being implemented to clinical practice is still many years off; but the progress made already highlights how far we've come, and how amazing it will be when/if it's reached.
The concepts presented in this book are both basic and advanced. If Agus wanted to present this as a heavy science, it'd be sent off to a Medical Journal and be impenetrable to certain populations. The discourse gives everyone a level playing field to understand the concepts.
At times it reads like a basic eye-opener, then Malcolm Gladwell type stories, and an oncologist trying to make progress in the field of cancer and illness.
If you're reading to find out what "health" is, this will be a poor book. If you're reading to see how trends in medicine could revolutionise your health care one day, this will be an amazing book.
Typical American healthlit, full of 'personal insights', 'great discoveries', 'demistifications' and confused lifestories ( to increase number of pages?)
It may well be that Dr. Agus presents some good suggestions at the end of the book, hence the two stars instead of just one. I don't know, but have given him the benefit of the doubt.
Also, I did not find what I read of the book particularly exciting in other respects.
I absolutely cannot recommend this book.

An interesting book with a grotesque title. Reviews many recent research studies, but like most of these type of books it ends up recommending that you seek professional advice.Published 23 months ago by D. R. Judd
Great insight into how the body works as a whole. Also how doctors aren't always the ones to trust with you health.Published on 22 Feb. 2014 by Kate Jackson
