Features bestselling and popular nonfiction titles that are highly engaging and have a broad appeal to many readers. Titles cover a wide spectrum of nonfiction sub-genres — including: armchair travel, popular science, pets and animals, popular culture, humor, history, current events, and biographies and memoirs, and other standouts in narrative nonfiction.



Founder of the Institute for Aging Research and one of the leading pioneers of longevity research, Dr. Nir Barzilai’s life’s work is tackling the challenges of aging to delay and prevent the onset of all age-related diseases. One of Dr. Barzilai’s studies features volunteers that include 750 SuperAgers — individuals who maintain active lives well into their nineties and even beyond. In Age Later, Dr. Barzilai reveals the secrets his team has unlocked about SuperAgers and the scientific discoveries that show we can mimic some of their natural resistance to the aging process.
