"[A] searching and surprisingly witty look at the scientific odds against tomorrow."
--Timothy Ferris

Jonathan Weiner--winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and one of the most distinguished popular science writers in America--examines "the strange science of immortality" in Long for This World. A fast-paced, sure-to-astonish scientific adventure from "one of our finest science journalists" (Jonah Lehrer), Weiner's Long for This World addresses the ageless question, "Is there a secret to eternal youth?" And has it, at long last, been found?

Long for this World-The Strange Science of Immortality
by Jonathan Weiner

Good information on the biology of aging and gerontology! Also how old age and the science behind prolonguing it affects our society as whole. Interesting read.

Interesting subject matter, but the author gets in the way with his opinions that are rarely based on facts. Better to directly read Aubrey de Grey's book and make up your own mind.
