Here are the big questions: How can you lead a fulfilled life? What can we influence in life – and how? What are people who grow very old proud of at the end of the day? And what regrets do they have? How do relationships shape our lives, what influence do culture and diet, exercise, genes, and education and affluence have? Klaus Brinkbäumer and Samiha Shafy travelled to Sardinia, Okinawa (Japan), and Loma Linda (California), to find out why many more people in these places live a whole lot longer than people elsewhere. Their journey then took them to Russia, China, Thailand, Hawaii, African islands and the East Coast of America – and, closer to home, to Austria, Switzerland, Denmark and the length and breadth of Germany. How do you lead a successful life? Scientists and centenarians can answer all these big questions.
