"Latest thinking concerning health, happiness, and longevity"? Not quite.
This is not a scientific work on longevity, simply a journalistic account, with certain clear biases. For instance, the author maintains that religion is a factor of longevity, but he chooses specifically religious "blue zones", such as a California Adventists town, or peasant populations in religious countries (Italy, Costa Rica) without ever seeking blue zones in non-religious environments.
There are other, much more valid works on the subject.
