I did not finish the book, even though I had only about 50 pages to go. I found it somewhat irritating to read- Stipp seemed to be constantly going off topic providing extensive researchers’ bios every time he discussed a research attempt, and then some more bio and anecdotes so that I was frequently losing sight of the issues at hand.He did discuss interesting research, and I wish he did it in a more linear fashion. Here are the main ideas: We all age, but animals age at different rates, some [...]

David Stipp, unfortunately, does not write very clearly. I know this is an instance of the pot calling the kettle black, but come on. You're a professional science writer.

It was interesting to hear about aging based on other animals and chemicals that help us live longer. It was also interesting to hear the personal stories of all the scientists who have been working on isolating the chemicals and proteins that help us live longer.

Interesting in the beginning; but then it turns dense and boring. I could hardly get to the 60% without falling asleep.

Interesting book, which I read with an open mind (just by reading the title I was thinking "overpopulation"), but I don't agree with the author's premise; we humans shouldn't be laboriously looking for a "cure" for old age or "The Fountain of Youth". Death is not only inexorable, but is also essential for the stability of our species and Earth. One of the main purposes of death is to prevent a species from overpopulating. Unfortunately, as I am righting this review, there are 7,401,994,033 human [...]

An excellent and detailed account of the latest research on longevity. Stipp does a great job of interpreting complex science for the lay person without over-simplifying. Especially fascinating is his coverage of drugs being developed that mimic the beneficial effects of CR (calorie restriction). There are no "quick fixes" presented in this book - instead, solid science and analysis of both past and present trends in gerontology research.

Don't let the huckster come-on title put you off this book; I speculate that it was slapped on by the publisher's marketing department. The book itself is actually a well-written tour of the biology and the business of aging.

Simply the best pop-science book about aging!

It turns out that the subject is actually quite boring.

looks like an interesting account of the history and modern search for the Fountain of Youth

Excellent, highly readable discussion of the science of aging.
