Long for this World-The Strange Science of Immortality
by Jonathan Weiner

Good information on the biology of aging and gerontology! Also how old age and the science behind prolonguing it affects our society as whole. Interesting read.

Interesting subject matter, but the author gets in the way with his opinions that are rarely based on facts. Better to directly read Aubrey de Grey's book and make up your own mind.
