Deagonbear - Good work. Get living
Bloody good work Peter. You should be proud for writing this book. You curated a masterpiece and I loved it. Looking forward to the next one when you have finally outlived.
adrianb75 - Outstanding and mind blowing!
It gave me a new perspective on what needs to be done to improve not only my physical health but most important my emotional health!
Old guitar dude - Good read
Interesting insights from someone I’ve been following since he appeared on TED. I continue to listen and read him regularly because he is evolving and not afraid to adjust his beliefs accordingly. I always loved how Dr Attia communicates ideas, clearly and concisely. This book was no different.
Kalebchristian - The best book I have ever read.
This books ties together so many things and give one a greater understanding on how to live a longer more quality life. Thanks Dr. Peter Attia!
lautedn - Great Book
Loved this book! I have been reading, researching and listening to blogs about nutrition for six years. So much of this book has helped me understand and has made so much information I have accumulated now make sense to me! Thank you, Dr. Attia…loved your informative podcasts in the past, but this book hit a HOME RUN! Truly appreciate your great presentation of the science as I journey my own path in life!
FoodiefromAustin - Changes the way you think about aging
Comprehensive, well researched, and eye-opening!
ces239 - Extraordinary work, blueprint for pursuing health
Dr Attia has applied risk analysis and an extraordinary synthesis of cutting edge science to the current practice of medicine, creating medicine 3.0, a new personalized approach for optimizing our health span and longevity. This is the blue print that every primary care physician and frankly all of us should follow, to live the healthiest life possible. A masterpiece.
Run84Lyfe - Essential
The one book I will read ever year!!

Apperlover - Boring
This book was extremely boring. Nothing new or insightful. I don’t recommend.
nickmarco - Disappointing
This book is painfully long, has not as much practical advice as I was hoping, way too many “let’s talk about me” moments, and oftentimes it feels the author is just using more complicated-sounding names of things to sound disruptive and cool.
Mike Kleven - Textbook for the next generation of physicians
In Outlive, Peter Attia presents, without hyperbole, an ambitious yet actionable and evidence-informed strategy to dramatically minimize the risk and burden of the chronic diseases that rob us of vitality as we age and ultimately end our lives. Amidst a vast wasteland of books on health, is this one any different?
In a word, very. There are two reasons why.
First, Attia’s knowledge base is unparalleled. He graciously attributes this to the all-star line-up of experts in cardiology, lipidology, oncology, neurology, psychiatry, endocrinology, biochemistry, nutrition, exercise physiology, etc. who’ve tutored him over the years, and whose expertise is shared generously on his podcast. The depth of his dives with them and his fluency in each specialty are extraordinary. But Peter’s superpower is not simply the intellect to master the nuances of each niche. It’s that, plus the broad perspective to integrate that knowledge into the grand landscape of human health—to see the forest and the trees. It’s a rare alchemy of assets: the breadth of a primary care physician, the depth of a specialist, the granularity of a laboratory scientist, and the heart of a teacher. That is Peter Attia.
Second, Outlive stands uniquely poised to do what others have not: transform healthcare. Not simply because his tactics for longevity are cutting edge and informed by the best science available—and they surely are. And not because those tactics won’t evolve as science progresses—for they surely will. No, Attia’s contribution will endure because his strategy is as timeless as it is revolutionary, and it will remain relevant as long as our objective is the extension of human health and lifespan.
Medicine 2.0, as he calls it, is the conventional paradigm, the model I learned in medical school. It served us well when infection was our greatest threat, and still does against acute disease or trauma. But today’s top killers are chronic diseases that exploit the one factor current treatment paradigms neglect: time. Heart disease, cancer, dementia, and metabolic disease mock our feeble 9th inning attempts to medicate them away after an eight-inning head start. To put more than a modest dent in their devastation, Attia argues, we must attack from the other end of the timeline, long before these diseases manifest clinically—before the game even begins. This is Medicine 3.0, and it truly is revolutionary.
To be clear, Outlive is not another sensational anti-establishment exposé on the failures, lies, and corruption of mainstream medicine. Rather, it graciously acknowledges Medicine 2.0’s success. But, noting its inadequacy against modern diseases, Attia has cleverly “back-casted” and reverse engineered a new strategy forward—and it is brilliant. If we do achieve significant improvement in human health and longevity, absent some miraculous sci-fi discovery, it will be because we followed the strategies presented in Outlive, even if its tactics are refined over time. This book is important. It’s carefully compiled, meticulously fact-checked, thoughtfully organized, and masterfully presented. It’s cutting edge, yet careful in its claims. Passionate, yet explicitly non-dogmatic. Deeply personal, yet rigorously clinical.
Speaking of personal, I must comment on the final chapter. Those of us who consider Peter superhuman may be surprised—and relieved, perhaps—to learn that he battles the same insecurities and weakness that beset the rest of us mortals. His candid account of recent struggles with emotional health is as inspiring as it is moving and provides precious layers of meaning and perspective to all that comes before it. If chapters 1 through 16 are the how, chapter 17 is the why. Whether serendipitous or providential, that his crisis manifested in time to consummate the finished project is fortuitous for us, as it changes the entire work in a compelling—and beautiful—way.
Since discovering The Drive in 2018, I’ve considered Attia’s podcast the most comprehensive and reliable resource for all things health and longevity. It changed the way I live, and how I practice medicine. Going forward, Outlive will be my primary textbook.
Thank you, Peter.
