Reviews and Comments

  • "If I live another 200 years, I don't think I'll read a better or more enjoyable book on the longevity movement. David EwingDuncan explains the massive impacts age-delay will have — whether sociological, philosophical, financial, medical, you name it — and he does so with his usual clear-eyed balance of open-mindedness and skepticism." —AJ Jacobs, author of Drop Dead Healthy
  • "Duncan, a science journalist and author, looks at some of the latest technological developments that could help humans live well past 100, and also discusses the ethical questions of a planet full ofgracefully aging "super-centenarians." SF Chronicle
  • "David Duncan makes it clear that immortality may not be all it is hyped up to be. Don't read this unless youwant your mind changed." —Kevin Kelly, Maverick Editor, Wired
  • "The question can be posed: 'how long do you want to live? 120 years? 150 years?' David Ewing Duncan asked this question to over 30,000 people... what an interesting inquiry!" —John Hockenberry, "The Takeaway"
  • "Well, on the subject of the book, it's a nice overview of the mountains and canyons there. I'm a bit concerned about your core survey question, though — 'who wants to live forever?' I think you're prejudicing your responses by bringing in a nebulous term like 'forever,' which is basically metaphysical." Read more —Bruce Sterling
