I'm bittersweet about this series' ending. Not every story should have a happy ending, and I'm glad that this one ended the series with closure, despite the loss.
The epilogue made up for the sadness though.

Not my favorite book in the series, but has a lot of closure. I’m a little disappointed it wasn’t the last one though. Looking forward to the finale, but I sure hope it’s not dragged out to 8 books.
This book should pass the test of time, even if some of the specific treatments, routines and advice will likely be outdated in 5-20 years. The goal to live (and the methods to achieve) a rich and active life that you can enjoy in your 80s and 90s is something that most health books don't even consider.
The chapter about Peter's mental health made the book stand out amongst similar "here's how to be healthy" books.
I really enjoyed reading how animals “see” and “feel” things that aren’t vision or touch. The author did a great job of trying to convey what it’s like to be an electric fish who can sense the electric fields around them and “see” omni directionally, to the experience of being a bat adjusting frequencies of sonar to adjust for the doppler effect, so that its brain perceives the same ultrasound “picture”.
