Publisher's Summary

We moderns take for granted many traits that were those of gods. Like flying through the air. We fill dark rooms with sudden lavish light, with the twitch of a finger. Average folks send messages or observe events across the globe through crystal tubes we command like genies. And yet the one trait of mortality that clings to us is...mortality.

Today, a fresh crop of true believers, including brilliant scientists, view death itself as a problem to be solved. Are they fantasizing? What are the prospects and problems and unforeseen side effects of longer life spans?
