Following the success of her surprisingly strong literary start in The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body, Cameron Diaz is releasing a tome that’s “an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages—and what we can all do to age better.”

The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time will be released in April; Diaz co-wrote it with Sandra Bark, with whom she worked on The Body Book. The Body Book did, as you may or may not recall, touch on aging; Diaz wrote then that when she was growing up, “It never occurred to me that it was a bad thing to grow older, and now I live in a world and work in a business that is bent on telling people—especially women—that they are no longer vital once they start showing signs of ‘aging.’”

“Getting older is amazing,” she added.

From the press release for the new book:

Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a conversation with her peers on an essential topic that that for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female body. In The Longevity Book, she shares the latest scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing insights from top medical experts and with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences.

Coincidentally or not, Cameron’s maybe-frenemy Kate Hudson also just announced (unsurprisingly) that she’s releasing a new book about “healthy ways to love your body” in February.

As she did with the last one, Diaz continues to emphasis that her book is a communal experience.

This book is for you and about you and that’s why we’d like to see you on the cover. Much like the cover of the Body Book, under the jacket, were we featured women of all different shapes, sizes, builds and ethnicities.

Looks like her social media fast is over.
