How long do you want to live? That's a question that has intrigued humans for eons. Now, advanced science and new levels of high-tech have allowed us to live longer and longer and longer....but at what cost? In 'When I'm 164', journalist David Ewing Duncan examines the opportunities and consequences of radical life extension.
Made me think about what would happen if we could live to 164
There have always been people who wanted to cheat death and to end the diseases and suffering of aging. But what would happen if some modern-day alchemists actually succeeded in allowing people to live far beyond the current "normal" lifespan? This book explains the science that might make this possible in short, entertaining and informative chapters while asking us to give serious thought to the upsides and downsides of life at the age of, say, 164. I love the rewrite of the lyrics to the Beatle's classic song - "If I'd been married 23 times, would that bother you?" Great stuff, highly recommended.
