Cheat death—or at least delay it—with this accessible look into the quest for immortality, and what it means for human civilization.
Are humans close to living forever? With advances in medicine and new therapies that prolong life expectancy, we are on track to make aging ever more manageable. This first book in the exciting newAlice in Futureland series explores both the science and cultural impulse behind extending life, and the numerous ways the quest for eternity forces us to reevaluate what it means to be human. Some experts believe that we haven’t fully realized our true human potential, and we are about to embark on an extraordinary evolutionary shift.
Hacking Immortality answers all your burning questions, including: –Can humans cheat death? –What is your grim age? –Will 100 be the new 40? –Will we become software?
As reality suddenly catches up to science fiction, Hacking Immortality gives the truth on the state of humanity—and all its possible futures.
