Product description

Review

"During medical school we were taught that aging is a natural process and that people can simply die of old age. The thinking was that age wasn't just a turning of the clock but an accumulation of mutations, cancer, arthritis, heart disease and dementia. Have you ever wondered, however, if it was possible to address those diseases not just individually, but collectively, by addressing the underlying process of aging itself. Sound far fetched? Well, It's this audacious way of thinking that propelled Andrew Steele to write Ageless. In this new book, Steele highlights therapies being developed to stymie aging, from rebooting the immune system to repairing DNA to removing senescent cells. This is a fascinating look at how scientists are working to help doctors treat not just one disease at a time, but the aging process itself, helping us all to lead longer, healthier lives."
-Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN

"Rejuvenation biotechnology is coming, but not rapidly enough. Ageless is an outstanding, totally accessible exposition of why aging can and should be understood as a medical problem, and of how the world's leading medical researchers are solving it. An absolute tour de force, it will surely save many lives by inspiring new recruits to join this crusade."
--Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer and co-founder of the SENS Research Foundation

"In his book Ageless, Andrew Steele describes how the field of aging biology moved from hope to promise. This is a masterful road map for interested lay people, scientists at large and also geroscientists like myself-- I was surprised how much I learned."
-Nir Barzilai, M.D., founding director of the Institute for Aging Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and author of Age Later: Health Span, Life Span and the New Science of Longevity

"An essential book for anyone interested in the fast-developing science of longevity."
-Jim Mellon, Chairman of Juvenescence

"Ageless is a fascinating, stimulating and pleasingly practical guide to the science of aging and how we might be able to bend the arrow of biological time to improve our health."
-Kat Arney, author of Rebel Cell: Cancer, Evolution and the Science of Life

"Few issues can be more important for our future than ensuring we age as well as possible. Ageless explains the extraordinary achievements and promise of current scientific research around longevity. Read it and prepare to think differently about your future."
-Andrew Scott, Professor of Economics, London Business School and co-author of The 100 Year Life --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
