    Bloomsbury presents Ageless by Andrew Steele, read by Andrew Steele.

    Ageless is a guide to the science driving biology’s biggest story: why we get old and how we can stop it.

    Ageing - not cancer, not heart disease - is the world’s leading cause of death and suffering. We accept as inevitable that as we get older our bodies and minds begin to deteriorate, and we are increasingly likely to be struck by dementia or disease. Ageing is so deeply ingrained in human experience that we never think to ask: is it necessary?

    Biologists, on the other hand, have been investigating that question for years.

    Ageless introduces us to the cutting-edge research that is paving the way for a revolution in medicine. It takes us inside the laboratories where scientists are studying every aspect of the body - DNA, mitochondria, stem cells, our immune systems, even longevity genes that have helped animals to a tenfold increase in lifespan - all in an effort to forestall or reverse our decline.

    Computational biologist Andrew Steele explains what is happening as we age and practical ways we can help slow down the process. He reveals how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest discovery in the history of medicine - one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars and transform the human condition.

    The best book on longevity yet.

    In the small sample size of books on longevity, this is the one I'd recommend everyone to start with.
    Will be changing careers after this, which is quite a feat for any book to pull off.

    An important read or in this case hear

    One of the most important topics in our current state of the world, where most people (90%) die due to the consequences of the aging process, is, what are the possiblities to change this ever growing tragedy of old age illnesses.
    Therefore this book gives a good overview of the currently 10 known hallmarks of aging and how they work, and how in the not to far future we can hopefully change it to the better for our species and for ourselves. Because the chance that you and i will suffer from cancer, alzheimers or something else age related is overwhelmingly high.
    I would suggest to read about it and then talk to friends who never considered the possiblities of slowing or even reversing the aging process.
