NOLA’S RATING: *****
How can we live longer and better? Veteran reporter, Bill Clifford leads readers on a personal investigation into the latest research and popular mythology about mankind’s oldest obsession: the science of aging. His funny, unique voice makes Spring Chicken, a great, informative but nonacademic read. He tells us what works and what doesn’t work. He reveals why some people live to be 100 without even trying and how our fat cells are killing us.
