Description

In this text, Thomas Kirkwood examines closely why we age, how human ageing compares to that of other animal species, what the menopause is for, why our memories fail as we get older and whether cancer is inevitable. Looking at the subject from a variety of perspectives, the book also projects us hundreds of years into a future where most of the symptoms of ageing have been conquered - and shows us what society could be like.show more
