How Not to Die

How to Get Signed, Personalized Copies of HOW NOT TO DIE

To encourage as many pre-orders as possible, I will sign and personalize How Not to Die for anyone pre-ordering five or more copies any time before the launch date on December 8, 2015. If you’ve already pre-ordered five or more, go to and tell me whom you’d like me to sign them for, and if there’s anything special you’d like me to say. If you haven’t reserved five yet, you still have three weeks! Pre-order How Not to Die now at (all my proceeds go to

Then what I’ll do is send you bookplates to the address you specify on the form. Bookplates are decorative labels pasted inside the front covers of books. I’m having special stickers made up that I will sign, personalize, and send to you to stick inside your books when they arrive.  Want me to wish someone a happy holiday or gently remind them to cut down on soda or eat their greens? Just tell me if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to say for each of the books. Be sure to fill out the form before midnight December 7, 2015, since after that, pre-orders turn into actual orders–I can’t wait!

Book Tour

After the December 8th deadline, the only way to get your book signed would be in person. Currently I’m confirmed in about 50 cities in 5 countries and hope to add dozens more dates. If you’d like me to come to speak in your community, hospital, school, or workplace please fill out a Speaking Request. It’s amazing I can affect so many millions of lives online, at home in my jammies, but it’s just not the same. I love traveling around and meeting everyone–I hope to see you soon!

Audiobook Update

After about 40 hours of recording in the studio, the audiobook is done! In fact, they even gave me an audio clip to share. Go to and you can hear me read the very first paragraphs of the book. I’m so glad I ended up doing it!

With thousands of pre-orders already logged, I’m expecting How Not to Die to make a big splash on launch week. You can help by pre-ordering copies for everyone on your gift list and, in appreciation, I’ll personalize, sign, and send you the bookplates that will enable you to transform them into unique, one-of-a-kind presents, just in time to make 2016 your friends’ and family’s healthiest year yet.

Together, let’s save some lives this holiday season.

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D.

  1. “I opened my eyes to the depressing fact that there are other forces at work in medicine besides science.” Boy that says it all. Thank you for the “sneak peak” audio clip, Dr. Greger–I’m looking forward to reading the entire book!

  2. Thanks for everything you’ve done/are doing.
    I’m definitely getting the audiobook. Reading the book in your voice or actually hearing you say it, not a hard choice.

  3. Already got my pre-orders sorted for the kindle and audiobook versions! With the new star wars and this book, December’s going to be GREAT!

  4. The finest nutrition and health site I have reviewed thus far. I have been studying nutrition and health since 1965. This series is wonderful!

  5. I pre-ordered as soon as I heard about your book! Looking forward to reading it and maybe even receiving a signed copy?
    Thanks for the tremendous work you do Dr. Greger.

  6. Hello, I signed up to get autographs. I attached my receipt for the books I had purchased from Amazon. I still have not received the autograph bookmarks to put in the books. I was hoping to get them before Christmas. It was for 2 autographs, 1 for myself and another for a gift. Thanks for any updates.
