"I’ve written many books on nutrition over the years, including healthy cookbooks that help you create delicious whole food, plant-based meals. Most recently, I’ve been researching and writing the How series. In How Not to Die, which became an instant New York Times best seller, I examined the 15 top causes of death in the United States—heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more—and explained how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives. It was followed by The How Not to Die Cookbook, which is not only its companion but another New York Times best seller. Next came How Not to Diet, my third New York Times best seller. I turned my attention to the latest research on the leading causes—and remedies—of obesity and built the ultimate weight-loss guide from the ground up, presenting actionable advice and groundbreaking dietary research. It, too, had a companion, The How Not to Diet Cookbook. In How to Survive a Pandemic, released in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, I reveal not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a worldwide health crisis, but also dug deeper into the roots of the problem and tackled the fundamental question: How can we stop the emergence of pandemic viruses in the first place? In recent months, I’ve been researching and writing my forthcoming book, How Not to Age. I’ve emerged from the deep dive I took into the top peer-reviewed anti-aging medical research with the understanding that diet can regulate every one of the most promising strategies for combating the effects of aging. Getting older does not have to mean getting sicker. I look forward to sharing with you everything I’ve learned to keep our bodies and minds vibrant and vital."
