Inhaltsangabe

Audio bonus! Includes exclusive conversations with the authors!

From an acclaimed Harvard professor and one of Time’s most influential people, this paradigm-shifting audiobook shows how almost everything we think we know about aging is wrong, offers a front-row seat to the amazing global effort to slow, stop, and reverse aging, and calls listeners to consider a future where aging can be treated.

For decades, experts have believed that we are at the mercy of our genes and that natural damage to our genes - the kind that inevitably happens as we get older - makes us become sick and grow old.

But what if everything you think you know about aging is wrong? What if aging is a disease - and that disease is treatable?

In Lifespan, one of the world’s foremost experts on aging and genetics reveals a groundbreaking new theory that will forever change the way we think about why we age and what we can do about it. Aging isn’t immutable; we can have far more control over it than we realize. This eye-opening and provocative work takes us to the front lines of research that is pushing the boundaries on our perceived scientific limitations, revealing incredible breakthroughs - many from Dr. David Sinclair’s own lab - that demonstrate how we can slow down, or even reverse, the genetic clock. The key is activating newly discovered vitality genes - the decedents of an ancient survival circuit that is both the cause of aging and the key to reversing it. Dr. Sinclair shares the emerging technologies and simple lifestyle changes - such as intermittent fasting, cold exposure, and exercising with the right intensity - that have been shown to help lead to longer lives.

Lifespan provides a road map for taking charge of our own health destiny and a bold new vision for the future when humankind is able to live to be 100 years young.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Boring, non actionable, I am disappointed

This is one of the most boring and less actionable book I read over the last 5 years. The speaker’s voice sounds very boring to me. Sometimes even sad. 80% of the content is provided at a very detailed technical / scientific level. 18% of the remaining content are citations of “the best PhD researcher of the world”. Both are fully irrelevant for a normal reader like me (although I have a PhD also) who looks for actionable knowledge to improve his health. My recommendation: save your time and money, walk away from this book. Instead, download a random 10 min. YouTube video about aging and health just for free. It probably contains the same well known actionable hints like reducing calorie intake, fasting, sport and all this stuff. I truly do not understand who are the 189 people that rated this book so good. It would not impress me if they are the PhD researcher that are continuously cited by the author and the students of the author himself. Before writing this review I wanted to prove myself wrong. So I continued and persisted, listening as much as possible. Bu, finally, I gave up and returned this title to audible.

Brilliant biologist and interesting topic

loved it, so mich going on in the bio science world! so many interesting things but also very detailed. 1..2 shortcuts would be possible and the book still great. but listening to David is easy and he has a very nice way to put issues and is very diplomatic about hot topics

Interesting and insightful

Interesting but simetimes too much politics. The science is a lot clearer and more well defined then the politics.

Great primer on the modern health science

Easy to listen to (1.5x speed) and rich in information on the background of the studies of aging, as well as insights into the near and distant future. Minus 1 star because I felt the second half of the book became a little repetitive and less dense with information. Being a renowned professor, we can assume Sinclair is intelligent and a great scientist. This book adds "trustworthy" and "realistic" to his traits, which is important for someone making the case that we could double the human lifespan in the next few decades. He is exactly the right kind of person to be leading these efforts.

Great Audiobook!

Really a great audiobook. Explains scientific terms and background in an easy to follow way without loosing professionalism. The ideas and scientific findings in this book are really interesting, eye-opening and make you think about medicine, the future and everyday life in a very inspirational kind of way. I truly recommend this book.

Inspiring and uplifting

I was amazed by how far science has come already. As I have trouble to stay on top of current research, this book was eye-opening. Many things that I remember discussing/thinking about/hearing a few years back suddenly seem way less distant. I look forward to seeing what the future brings

A tribute to modern science.

It is simply eye opening. I will start to live my longer life just tomorrow.
