I’ve recorded more than 1,000 videos for NutritionFacts.org, each offering snapshots of some of the most interesting cutting-edge science, but I wanted to created a more coherent whole. How Not to Die has enabled me to wrap up decades of groundbreaking discoveries in one place. The book represents my life’s work—work I’ve distilled into about 600 pages. And instead of just reviewing the latest science, this book has also allowed me the opportunity to lay out all my personal recommendations (based on the preponderance of available evidence).
What has the response been like so far?
So far, it's been beyond my wildest dreams, ranking in the top 10 for Amazon.com for presales, and then was an instant New York Times best seller.
What are your future plans?
I plan to continue recording new videos for my website, NutritionFacts.org. In addition, I'm on tour most of next year - more than 50 cities and 5 countries! I hope I can make it to Australia sometime soon!
How long did the book take to make from creation of recipes to release?
Over a year!
