Younger: A Breakthrough Program to Reset Your Genes, Reverse Aging, and Turn Back the Clock 10 Years

Sara Gottfried. HarperOne, $27.99 (368p) ISBN 978-0-06-231627-1
Gynecologist Gottfried (The Hormone Reset Diet) emphasizes the role of environment and lifestyle in her new book about how to age well. According to her, a regimen of diet, exercise, and supplements can “maximize what your genes can do.” Her advice boils down to the basics—eat and sleep well, exercise, destress, and live in a healthy environment—which she enumerates in a seven-step protocol. Each step is meant to be adopted over a week, and the protocol for each one combines detailed explanations of the genes related to that step and the supplements, foods, or behaviors that turn each gene on or off. There are three levels for implementing each protocol: the basic rituals, the more involved steps (often including many supplements), and the “advanced projects” readers can try. The book contains a “healthspan” quiz , recipes, and copious notes. Throughout, Dr. Sara (as she calls herself) urges readers to skip the science if it overwhelms them and turn to the steps themselves. Her relatable, energetic delivery adds conviction to her cogent advice. Agent: Celeste Fine, Sterling Lord Literistic. (Feb.)
