9781617230080: The Youth Pill: Scientists at the Brink of an Anti-Aging Revolution

Living longer is closer than we think.

Even before the first person set off to find the Fountain of Youth, we were searching for a way to live longer. But promises of life extension have long reeked of snake oil, and despite our wishful thinking—not to mention the number of vitamins we pop—few of us believe we’ll live to see one hundred, much less set a longevity record.

But now scientists are closing in on true breakthroughs in anti-aging. Compounds that dramatically extend the health spans of animals, including mammals, have recently been demonstrated in the lab, and gerontologists now generally agree that drugs that slow human aging and greatly boost health in later life are no longer a distant dream.

David Stipp, a veteran science journalist, tells the story of these momen­tous developments and the scientists behind them, providing a definitive, engaging account of some of the most exciting (and sometimes controversial) advances that promise to change the way we live forever.

About the Author :

David Stipp is a former senior writer for Fortune and a former staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal, where he covered science, medicine, and technology.

Sean Runnette, a multiple AudioFile Earphones Award winner, has also produced several Audie Award-winning audiobooks. His film and television appearances include Two If by Sea, Copland, Sex and the City, Law & Order, Third Watch, and lots and lots of commercials.

From AudioFile :

Using data on animals ranging in size from dwarf mice to elephants, the author looks at what we know about the mystery of aging, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. He focuses on experiments and researchers studying free radicals, antioxidants, calorie restriction, and resveratrol. Not written for the scientifically timid, the book contains plenty of the language of genetics, biochemistry, and zoology. Narrator Sean Runnette takes it all in stride. His ability with the extensive technical vocabulary makes it sound like he must have written the book. He reads briskly, which matters little, as no listener will ever remember all the rapidly fired statistics. Of special merit is Runnette's delivery of the author's delightful scientific sense of humor. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
