Title

Senescence is an Option: The Quest for Immortality

Description

Since the earliest beginnings of civilization, the rich and powerful have sought the Holy Grail—the secret to immortality. The quest continues today on both the fringes and in the mainstream (think PayPal founder Peter Theil). Join author Barbara Barnett on a journey through the sometimes-bloody history of this immortal quest.
