Our body is the greatest asset, but it is often poorly maintained. Implementation of geroscience diagnostics and interventions is revolutionizing health(care) and will optimize healthspan. How long this span of health should last is rigorously discussed in The Death of Death. Life or health extension?
Director of Centre for Healthy Longevity and professor of Biochemistry and Physiology, National University of Singapore
Aging research has become mainstream and, while most of the current focus is understandably on extending healthy longevity and offsetting the emerging demographic, global crisis of age-related chronic disease, the future impact of longevity research is an equally important and fascinating issue. No one is a bigger advocate of the future of this field than José and his coauthor David. Here, they thoughtfully explore whether age-associated mortality is truly inevitable. For the first time in history, this is a legitimate question with which scientific endeavour must grapple.
Founder of OneShared.World and author of Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity
Death may not yet be dead, but we humans are fast-developing the tools to put up, quite literally, the fight of our lives. The Death of Death thoughtfully explores a future of human mortality that could be radically different from our past. It should be required reading for anyone interested in the promising new science of human life extension.
Host of Generation Bold Podcasts, fellow of The New York Times Age Boom and co-founder of National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys
The Death of Death gives us a vision of a world where death needs not be a given. No one should dismiss the importance of this book or the logic with which co-authors José and David construct it. They are two of the world’s leading futurists on aging. Open your mind and heart and leap into a future that may already be at the tipping point of human change and destiny. What would extreme longevity or The Death of Death mean to government policies and culture? Would you live your life differently? As the book grapples with these issues, the authors provide answers not just for immortalists but for all of us.
Editor-in-chief of Longevity.Technology
There are so many questions about our relationship with death, many of them unspoken; there is a dissonance in our group think – from individuals, to politicians, to scientists. The Death of Death not only deals with these questions head-on, it sets-out the technical and moral roadmap for humankind to embrace longevity and for individuals to plan to live as long as they wish. Longevity is the next megatrend and this book makes a huge contribution to its foundation.
Tina Woods, founder & CEO of Collider Health, Healthy Longevity Champion, National Innovation Centre for Aging
The Death of Death is a masterful exploration of the exponential developments in science and technology enabling us to unravel the intricacies of the aging process and imagine the tools to delay and maybe even stop death. We need brilliant minds and provocateurs like José and David to challenge pervasive thinking that constrains progress to live longer healthier. The next frontier in longevity is how we can harness and share collective intelligence across all of society to create a world where all people can flourish – since hope, passion and curiosity and all the unique magical ingredients of the human spirit that drive us are critical to give people the longing to live, and not just survive.
James R. Strole, director for the Coalition for Radical Life Extension and RAAD (Revolution Against Aging and Death) Fest
I am deeply grateful to both José and David writing this powerful book. It not only covers the rapidly expanding science of curing aging and death, but reminds us that we as human beings have historically always sought out immortality, because it’s innate in our bodies to ultimately conquer death.
Nicklas Brendborg, associate of Futures Institute AG and author of Jellyfish Age Backwards
The fight against aging should be something uniting us all. The Death of Death delivers an important, thorough and enjoyable deep dive into how we could win this fight and what will come next.
Director of Aging Research, King’s College London
The fear of death has fuelled the quest by humans to extend their lives life since time immemorial. Although spiritual lives may last for eternity, recent advances in science and technology brings mankind a step closer towards realistically extending their mortal life through increasing health-span. This provides a foundation for many of the concepts persuasively covered in The Death of Death to inspire the next generation of scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, and policymakers to collectively endeavour to realise some of them over the next few decades.
Founder of Viome and Moon Express, vice chair of Singularity University, author of Moonshots
The Death of Death is a revolutionary book that considers the new possibilities of “moonshot” thinking applied to longevity and rejuvenation technologies. Indeed, immortality is impossible until it becomes possible, this is disruptive thinking!
Managing general partner of LongevityTech.Fund
We see an acceleration of scientific discoveries and clinical trials, clearly showing that we can slow down and reverse the aging process. The major problem now is the general perception of this effort as something “unnatural” or “impossible”. The Death of Death is an excellent elaboration and argumentation to support our vision and general awareness. It will not leave anyone in doubt after reading.
CEO and co-founder of Asher Longevity Institute
The Death of Death sets a new standard for living well for as long as we want. This book presents a logical roadmap for eternal life. Thrilling! Inspiring!! Logical!! Backed by very credible data from the top experts in the field.
