about

From the author of How to Create a Mind comes startling discoveries in the areas of genomics, biotechnology, and nanotechnology occur practically every day.  The rewards of this research, some of it as spectacular as science fiction, are practically in our grasp. Fantastic Voyage shows us how we can use these new technologies to live longer than previously imaginable.
 
The authors take the reader on a journey to undreamed-of vitality with a comprehensive investigation into the cutting-edge science regarding diet, supplementation, genetics, detoxification, and the hormones involved with aging and youth.  By following their program, which includes such simple recommendations as eating a balanced, low-glycemic-index diet, and taking powerful anti-aging nutritional supplements, anyone will be able to add years of healthy, active life.

"This visionary book provides a state-of-the-art synthesis of the latest evidence on aging." (Dean Ornish, M.D., developer of the Opening Your Heart program)

"A concise yet comprehensive journey that accurately recounts the past and present state of our collective knowledge." (Dean Kamen, physicist and inventor of the IBOT Mobility System and Segway Human Transporter, and recipient of the National Medal of Technology)

"Fantastic Voyage boldly challenges conventional wisdom about aging and illness and offers groundbreaking solutions to remain young and healthy indefinitely. (John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus)

"Anyone can find it easy to implement action that will enhance their health. (George King, M.D., professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School)

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authors give evidence rather than asking for blind Far too many books on nutrition simply ask the reader to accept the superior knowledge of the author and take it on faith that the assertions made in their work are true. The result is a seemingly endless stream of books making conflicting claims (for instance, about what fats are good for you or bad for you, or in what quantities dietary supplements are safe) with no way for a non-expert reader to assess these competing visions. This book takes the opposite approach, explaining every assertion, at both the systemic level and at the level of chemical interactions -- invitingthe reader to decide for him or herself whether or not to accept what the authors are saying. This makes it more work to read than other books, but also far more valuable. There is an accompanying web site that supplies updates and related material. Note: apart from dealing with overall health and longevity, Fantastic Voyage also treats the extremes of longevity science, up to and including the potential for human immortality. More conservative readers might want to skip over these sections, but that's easily done since this issue is treated separately from the issue of general health and doesn't detract from it. And before skipping anything you might want to consider the authors' credentials, which are stellar and are easily found on the internet.
