I am not a scientist nor qualified to make an accurate evaluation of the ideas presented in this book. However, de Grey's ideas on ending aging are very interesting and make logical sense when thinking about the big picture of aging. He makes a very compelling argument throughout this book on the different ways to eliminate "junk" in our bodies and restore our body's systems to a youthful state. I am concerned, however, with some of his ideas. As stated in the previous review, I am also concerned with his ideas for treating cancer. Eliminating male fertility to me would be a grave concern for most males needing cancer treatment and would be met with great resistance. However, he did state in an earlier part of his book that he would rather wait for others to come up with a solution for cancer. I think that is his best option in that matter. Another concern of mine is that he approaches some of his ideas too scientifically and doesn't account for the "human" factor. In the end, I think most of his ideas will lead to a revolution in the way the world thinks about aging. His work, along with the work of his colleagues in other fields, will help lead us into the age of agelessness.

This book reviews ways to reverse the aging damage in our bodies. I am not an expert and so cannot comment on whether this book is accurate or authoritative. However, I really hope that someone finds ways to do what de Grey suggests. The book's science is extremely interesting, and, at least to a layman, the book is well worth reading for that alone. I have a couple of regrets about this book, however. One is that the method de Grey suggests for ending the threat of cancer, would also end male fertility forever. De Grey doesn't seem to mind this. I sure would, however. My second regret is that throughout the book, de Grey comes across as a con artist or snake oil salesman. I know that the journal Nature bothered to review this book; I believe de Grey is telling the truth when he says he has been a scientist. But I don't know what to think about his fundamental honesty and reliability. I would hesitate greatly before sending money to his Methuselah foundation, even though I dearly want aging cured as soon as possible.

Dr. de Grey's book is a compelling call to research and implementation of medical techniques that can potentially lengthen life and improve quality through those years. Although he considers the aspects of aging he addresses comprehensive (and they are each important), he neglects the grosser aspects of aging: arthritic deformities, loss of teeth, skin changes, organ distortion and enlargement and hormonal changes. It is nevertheless an important and exciting treatment of the frontier of age management medicine.
