Product description

Live long enough to live for ever! Immortality is within our grasp. We are in the early stages of multiple profound revolutions spawned by the intersection of biology, information science and nanotechnology. With the decoding of the genome and our efforts to decode its expression in proteins, many new life-extending methodologies are emerging. This fascinating book brings it all together for the layman. Accessible and clear, Fantastic Voyage charts the progress that has been made and points the way to what is to come. From the self-evidently sensible (take plenty of exercise) to the truly mind-boggling (reduce biological ageing by the injection of nanobots), it lays out our paths into the future with plenty of practical recommendations for age-deferring in the present.

Author information

Ray Kurzweil was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at 35 and subsequently learned to control it through nutrition, exercise and stress management. He is the author of the bestselling 10 per cent Solution for a Healthy Life. Dr Terry Grossman was a conventional GP-type doctor until a knee injury that didn't heal properly caused him to investigate alternative therapies. Both baby boomers, in their mid-50s now, they hope that by following the advice they present in this book they will live long enough to take advantage of the era when extreme longevity will have become commonplace.
