Excellent- His better-mousetrap idea was to compare the [3] longest- lived populations on earth for social and diet similarities, then present results.
What results? Hint: it ain't Atkins, or individualism. It's more Mediterranean diet and valuing the social.
Yes, mostly just common-sense, which isn't common, but i've never seen it all marshaled so engagingly and succinctly.
Here's a quote by an ancient Okinawan: "You have two doctors- your left and right legs."! :)

Just read it. Try "The Okinawa Diet Plan" and "The Brain Diet" too.

Engagingly written book about the emotional and cultural barriers that prevent Westerners from living to their full health potential, while providing hope for change.
