This book is a sort of biography of a present day micro biologist and study of the aging process. Mr. Weiner is a journalist and he writes in present day language describing the researchers he encounters and work they are doing as well as their opinions. It is quite enlightening and entertaining. I would recommend it to those who have an interest in science and specifically the aging process.

You may love the narrating style but I hated it. The reader changes his voice to mimic the actual speaker. For example, Woody Allen actually has his vocal affect and so on. But the story is another story. The author had a hard time being neutral to his characters. He seemed to dislike the main contributor. The story alternates between unbearable fluff and dense esoterica. To be fair, there are passages that even I could understand. I hoped there would be more focus on the issue of genetic errors over time and what approach science would take to address this. Additionally, the role of telomeres in aging was not addressed to any satisfactory level. On the overall this book left me on the edge of my seat. I am exited to see the breakthroughs that's coming down the pike. We will have to completely re access what it means to be human. These advances will inevitably ask more questions that the questions they answer.
