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 anti-aging 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 anti-aging movement, and what do they expect from the vast and growing anti-aging 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dorothy | 1/23/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alexandre Couto de Andrade | 9/14/2012

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Katie Christian | 10/22/2011

    " 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 by 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. "
