Book Review: My Reaction To Peter Attia Md’s New Book, “Outlive” &Raquo;

Title: Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity Author:  Peter Attia, MD (author, audiobook narrator) with Bill Gifford (author) Reviewed for BabyBoomer.org by Gregory Damian   I started listening to Peter Attia MD’s “The Drive” podcast in December of 2021. At first I was skeptical of some of Dr Attia’s thoughts and positions. I assumed he was a standard medicine 2.0 doctor.

Book Review: Brent Green’s ‘Noble Chaos: A Novel’ Offers Rare Opportunity To Relive The Collegiate Experience Of The Turbulent Sixties And Seventies &Raquo; 51Jhweo4N6L. Sl500

Title: Noble Chaos: A Novel Author Brent Green Audiobook narrated by Jack de Golia Reviewed for the NABBW by Anne Holmes Let me begin my review with this disclaimer: Brent Green’s Noble Chaos, is a book that powerfully resonates in my heart. It speaks deeply to me, as not only was I a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the early 1970s, but Madison is my hometown. Which means I was there during the 1960’s, when that campus became a hotbed of student activism, with student protests mostly focused on the highly unpopular Viet Nam war. In high school, I had a part-time... Continue Reading

Title: Boomers, Zoomers, and Other Oomers: A Boomer-biased Irreverent Perspective on Aging  Author: Marcel Strigberger ISBN-10#:0995950121 Reviewed for the NABBW by Anne Holmes Canadian author Marcel Strigberger says he is a humorist trapped inside the body of a former litigation lawyer. You might think that is a unique resume starter, and you’d be correct.
