This eminently readable and exciting book synthesises the views of the world’s experts on ageing and offers a provocative view that ageing is a disease that can be tamed. The 115 year average ceiling will be breached and Jim and Al offer cogent reasons why this will happen. The benefits to the world will be enormous as are the challenges. Cracking the Code discussed exciting investible prospects in biotechnology; Juvenescence does this same for ageing. A book for the scientist and the layman but most of all the open minded.
