Author and narrator Andrew Steele is a specialist in the "new science of getting older without getting old." No one dies of old age, Dr. Steele argues, and as we reduce the underlying causes of death, we increase average longevity. Putting aside the question of where we'll put all these additional old folks, Steele offers a fascinating survey of contemporary medicine and the research on longevity in animals and humans. Although Steele is a television personality in Britain, as the audiobook's narrator, his delivery strikes the American ear as too rapid, and he runs words together. While his voice may lack charm and accessibility, the topic of longevity is fascinating. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
