With the audacious belief that the lifestyles of the world's Blue Zones could be adapted and replicated in towns across North America, Buettner launched the largest preventive health care project in the United States, The Blue Zones City Makeovers, which has impacted the health of millions of Americans since 2009.

Throughout the book are lifestyle recommendations, checklists, and stories to help you create your own personal Blue Zones solution.
