What happens when you mix modern medical entrepreneurship with one of the most ancient of human desires—the desire to live forever? The answer is today's multibillion-dollar antiaging industry, which promises everything from restoring lost vitality to actually turning back the hands of time for aging boomers. But who, exactly, makes up the antiaging movement, and what do they expect from the vast and growing antiaging apothecary? Who is simply manufacturing money from spurious claims and dubious products, and who is performing legitimate scientific research? One thing is clear: by the mid-twenty-first century, America will have one million centenarians. How much older, then, can (and should) we get?

Sharp, funny, fast-paced, and deeply informed, Eternity Soup is a full-course meal about our quest for immortality, spiced with human vanity, chicanery, and cutting-edge science. Download and start listening now!

    " A good overview. Lacking much thought on environmental and philosophical effect. "

    " A very good book that tells scientific knowledge apart from myth and pseudoscience. "

    " Interesting - but not in-depth. The author didn't seem to do much research of his own, and his mocking attitude toward the A4M wasn't warranted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 6/28/2011

    " Overall this is a very well-researched book. There are parts, like the section on lab animals in Book Three, that I feel drag on a bit too long out of the interest of the author rather than necessity. But it's an educational and enlightening read. "
