Can we push the human life span past 100? 150? Even further?

We live in an age when billionaires are betting their fortunes on laboratory advances to prove aging unnecessary and death a disease that can be cured. Researchers are delving into stem cells and sequencing genomes, determining what it means to grow old and how to keep those processes from happening. This isn't science fiction -- it's real, it's serious, and it's on track to revolutionize our definitions of life and mortality.

In Immortality, Inc., veteran science journalist Chip Walter gains exclusive access to the champions of this radical cause, resulting in a book that brings together for the first time the visions of Google CEO Arthur Levinson, genomics entrepreneur Craig Venter, futurist Ray Kurzweil, and rejuvenation engineer Aubrey de Grey. Along the way, Walter weaves in fascinating conversations about life, death, aging, and the future of the human race.
