A summation of the first three books, this title talks of healthy eating, hydration, exercise and fitness, self-esteem and a positive mental attitude, sound sleeping practices, coping with financial and relationship stresses and embracing a positive attitude towards life. Stating that there is no quick fix for looking younger and long life, the writer aims to inspire readers to adopt a holistic approach to better health and happiness.
