Product description

Review

"Lifespan gives us hope for an extraordinary life. As the brilliant Dr. David Sinclair explains, aging is a disease, and that disease is treatable. This eye-opening book takes you to frontlines of incredible breakthroughs. What could be more valuable than an extended health lifespan? Enjoy this must read masterpiece!"--Peter H. Diamandis, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Abundance and Bold "Sydney Morning Herald"

"Lifespan is entertaining and fast-paced--a whirlwind tour of the recent past and a near future that will see 90 become the new 70. In a succession of colorfully titled chapters ('The Demented Pianist', 'A Better Pill to Swallow'), Sinclair and LaPlante weave a masterful narrative of how we arrived at this crucial inflection point."-- "Nature Journal"

"Lifespan is the book we have been waiting for. It transcends everything we know about aging and longevity--a combination of brilliant scientific work, a pioneering mind, and the dream for a longer, healthier and happier life. Lifespan provides a vision for our future and the roadmap on how to get there, merging scientific breakthroughs and simple lifestyle changes to not only help us feel younger, but actually become younger."--Naomi Whittel, New York Times bestselling author of Glow15 "Sydney Morning Herald"

"A tour de force. Sinclair's book, and his life's work ranks with humanity's greatest contributions to helping enhance the joy and happiness of life, ranking with the works of Jenner, Pasteur, Salk, Locke, Gandhi, and Edison. Lifespan is a groundbreaking literary triptych that expertly combines the science of living longer, a practical checklist to unleash our inner potential for healthy longevity, and a brilliant philosophical, policy and ethical synthesis. A masterpiece."--Martine Rothblatt, founder, Chairwoman of the Board, and CEO of United Therapeutics and creator of SiriusXM Satellite Radio "Sydney Morning Herald"

"A visionary book from one of the most masterful longevity scientists of our time. Lifespan empowers us to change our health today while revealing a potential future when we live younger for longer."--Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure "Sydney Morning Herald"

"An intellectually fascinating book with tantalizing insights on the most important issue about yours and everyone's future."--Andrew Scott, PhD, professor of economics at London Business School and author of The 100-Year Life "Sydney Morning Herald"

"David is a pioneer poised to change how we think about and understand aging."--Stephanie Lederman, CEO of the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), New York "Sydney Morning Herald"

"David Sinclair masterfully presents a bold vision of the future in which humanity is able to slow or reverse the aging process and live younger, healthier lives for longer. He engages the reader in a thorough examination of the science and emerging technologies that will enable humanity to achieve this vision."--Victor J. Dzau, MD, president of the US National Academy of Medicine and CEO of Duke University Medical Center "Sydney Morning Herald"

"For years, the aging field has been about vitamins, juicebars, and snake oil. Now, in a seminal book, Harvard Professor David Sinclair has changed the landscape: he has combined precise science, practical translation, and autobiography to produce a rare book that is insightful, inspiring, and informative. He has translated a wealth of molecular detail into a program that we can all use to live longer and healthier. This is part of the ongoing revolution in aging and chronic disease, and there is no one who is better suited to write such an authoritative book than David Sinclair. For anyone interested in understanding the aging process, living longer, and avoiding the diseases of aging, this is the book to read."--Dale Bredesen, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Alzheimer's "Sydney Morning Herald"

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. David Sinclair and following his groundbreaking research into the causes and reversal of aging for many years. In Lifespan, David takes us on an entertainingly wild ride into both the author's fascinating personal journey of discovery and his seminal research into why we age. But more importantly, he provides us with the everyday tools that we can all use to stop what he now calls 'the disease of aging.'. . . You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to read and follow his advice, as I have for the last 15 years!"--Steven R Gundry, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Longevity Paradox and medical director of the International Heart and Lung Institute "Sydney Morning Herald" --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
