Talking to researchers and entrepreneurs in the field, Greg Critser takes a look at the ways people are trying to slow down the aging process, including calorie restriction, hormone replacement, organ replacement, and nano materials. Erik Synnestvedt gives a lively reading, mixing excitement over the new developments with amusement at the absurd excesses of the anti-aging industry. He also brings home the personal angle for Critser, who used anti-aging medicine to fight the effects of a concussion. This is an entertaining and informative look at the latest in science—and at human foibles. Even listeners who aren't particularly worried about approaching old age will be drawn into Critser's engaging book. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
