Podcast: NPR Fresh Air on longetivity -- listen while you are training

I just listened to an interview of Bill Gifford, author of Spring Chicken, a book on longetivity on NPR's Fresh Air.

The title of the book sounds a bit frivolous, but the book is well researched -- based on interviews of scientists and exceptional old athletes. Some of his advice, backed up with data: exercise, stay thin and avoid human growth hormone.

I'm not sure if there is enough actionable information to justify reading the book, but it has a 4.5 average rating on Amazon.
