What they say about Live Well Live Long


“An extraordinary masterpiece … There has never been a book  that so clearly, comprehensively and entertainingly tells you how to get to be 100 years old and still be happy and healthy. Get this book and keep it by your bedside. Give a copy to anyone you love and who you would like to share the rest of your life with in good health and humour.” Craig Sams, co-founder Green & Black’s chocolate, past chair of the Soil Association

“Peter Deadman has achieved something wonderful, something gorgeous in creating this book. He has managed to write with great simplicity, eloquence and gracefulness about a subject which is deep and rich; yangsheng, the Chinese tradition of nourishing life … I am certain that the book will appeal to anyone who has no knowledge of the Chinese philosophy (it would be a wonderful introduction for our patients) of how to look after ourselves in body, mind and spirit through diet, exercise, sleep, deepening our relationship with nature,v‘affairs of the bedroom’ and even music and dance, amongst other gifts.”
Emma Farrant, The Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine Journal


“This is an authoritative, scholarly, thorough and compassionate book about being alive in its broadest and highest sense. It has much to offer practitioners, educators and the general public. ”           Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine


“A fabulous new book on cultivating health and longevity from the Chinese ‘nourishment of life’ tradition. Supported by the Chinese medical classics and modern research, the author, a senior practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, teaches us ways of being in the world which can sustain good health and at the same time support the environment we live in. From discussions on the benefits of proper diet and exercise, tea drinking and dancing, through to caring for mothers in pregnancy and the postpartum and how to face the challenges of old age, this is a beautiful book written with charm, wit and a deep understanding of what is important in life.”

“Elegant and accessible, informative but undogmatic, comprehensive yet not boastful. It is a magnificent achievement, especially in the way in which it incorporates knowledge and wisdom from many cultures with no conspicuous friction. Deadman recognises and acknowledges many uncertainties and gaps in our knowledge, yet articulates an illuminating and authoritative narrative.”
Erik Millstone, Professor of Science Policy at the University of Sussex


“Elegantly written and diligently referenced; this book is an ultimate guide for wellbeing. The uncompromising relevance of this book makes it a must for all TCM practitioners and a first recommendation to all our patients.”
Yanan Kim, Teamor Tea Tailors, Australia


“This is a beautiful book. It is written in a way that would make it accessible to anyone, while at the same time conveying important, well researched and useful items of knowledge. A great book to have on the shelf, for the chapters are very clear so it’s easy to dip into if you want advice on a particular subject. A rich array of wisdomous tips to live a long and healthy life which have their conception in Chinese medicine, however they are all backed up with western/modern research. I highly recommend.”
