ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Standing on the shoulders of giants…

By Marcus Santer


Here’s my favourite quote of the week:

My first overlook is outstanding.
I think that your breezy yet authoritative style is grand.
More detailed reaction to follow.”
Dr Walter Bortz

Now I hesitated to share this with you.


Because it still makes me feel a little squiggly inside when I read it.

You see, I’ll let you into a little secret…

…Even though the Healthy Ageing Pyramid is my 8th book…

…Even though I’ve written 43 issues of the monthly ZEN+ Journal…

…And even though I’ve written well over 2,000 posts on my various blogs…

…My default setting is to think my writing is crap.

I know, self esteem issues right?

Now I reached out to Walter in September and was delighted when he not only agreed to review a chapter of the Healthy Ageing Pyramid book, he agreed to review everything I’d written so far!

Now in case you’re not aware…

I consider Walter Bortz to be The Daddy when it comes to evidenced based ways to reach your maximum years with full health and vigour.

And as you can imagine, when he agreed to help…

I felt like I’d won the lottery.

So I sent him the rough draft.

But after having waited nearly 3 weeks to hear back from Walter, I’d kinda convinced myself that my writing was so appalling bad, that he didn’t want to reply.

LOL, I know, I know.

Hey, I’ve never said I was perfect.


Earlier this week I put my big boy pants on, picked up the telephone (I hate the telephone) and called Walter.

Long story short, he’s been busy.

The kinda busy that would finish off most 86 year olds, but not Walter.

He asked me to send it again, and the next day I got the reply above.


So I guess my writing doesn’t suck after all.

And yesterday I was on the phone again (I know, right!), this time to Dr Eric Thomas discussing the Social Connection chapter I’d sent to him.

He gave me some real gold nuggets that I’ll be adding to the 2nd draft.

I’ve also had feedback on chapters from:

All of which means when The Healthy Ageing Pyramid book is finished…

You can be certain it will be the best book on what is currently known (and proven) to help you stack the odds of a longer, healthier and more robust life in your favour.

How can I make such a bold statement?

Because even though it’ll be my name on the cover, even though I’ve spent the last 5 years neck deep in the research, the contents will have been picked over and improved by these experts.

I will literally be standing on the shoulders of giants.

And I can’t wait to get it into your hands

Bye for now


P.S. The schedule for release of The Healthy Ageing Pyramid book is January 2017.

But because I want to gain the full benefit of Dr Walter Bortz’s input – and because he’s so busy – that might get pushed back a little bit.

You see I want to make certain that when it comes to living and ageing well, you get the very best advice currently available.

But if you don’t want to wait…
