Summary

As the human lifespan increases, New York Times best-selling author Michael Roizen, M.D. offers an inspiring look into the future of longevity--and reveals how to prepare for a longer, healthier future.


Believe it or not, living to 100, 120, or even 130 years old will become increasingly common over the next decade--and life past 100 may not be what you think. In this groundbreaking narrative, best-selling author Michael Roizen explains how cutting-edge science and technology will revolutionize your ability to live longer, younger, and better.
As evidenced in the global press, today's breakthroughs in longevity research are unprecedented. This provocative yet practical book will help you prepare for the next major social disruptor by making the best decisions for your brain, your body, and your bank account.
Dr. Roizen, along with acclaimed economists Peter Linneman and Albert Ratner, unpacks a wide swath of medical phenomena--from reengineering aging cells to DNA manipulation to bionic bodies--and shows how increased longevity will change our lives and our culture. They also provide a concrete action plan for good health, a youthful appearance, mental vigor, and strong finances in this brave new world.
The most comprehensive and forward-looking take on aging to date, this indispensable book illuminates the prevention, treatment, and technology that will reshape how we think about old age--and help us plan for an audacious future.
