A Short Guide to a Long Life by David B. Agus, MD [2014]

This is a short book that I read recently whilst in bed with a cold.  

The book is a series of bite-sized rules for better health by a famous US cancer doctor.  It is in a similar format to Michael Pollan's Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, which it references.  

This could be a little preachy, and at times it is (a characteristic it shares with Pollan's book). But the rules do make sense, and the author is refreshingly sceptical of vitamins, juicing, detox and other fads.

I am glad I read it because it may motivate me to start having a regular check-up.
