Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer

Barbara Ehrenreich

Who knew that the author of the bestselling classic Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America (2001) has a PhD in cellular immunology from Rockefeller University? It comes in handy here as she follows her tough, contrarian bent to challenge our obsession with living longer by practicing mindfulness, following fitness gurus, and shunning French fries. In fact, a quick look at the cellular basis of aging shows that we're pretty powerless as time marches on and the body makes up its own mind. (Library Journal)
