David B. Agus, M.D.

Cancer specialist Dr. David Agus distills advice from his previous bestseller, The End of Illness (2012), into a simple set of rules for living wisely through healthy habits. Agus stresses the importance of those "easier-said-than-done" self-care measures, like eating a balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep. He also provides a decade-by-decade checklist of routine annual medical exams. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure in Agus’s latest.
