Format: Hardcover
I got this book because I used to do work on the author's lab and I was amazed by the work they were pursuing there.
I have read other bio textbooks, but what strikes me most about this one is that if you really just want to read one, this one has got it all. It is a complete survey, of all that is known and being studied currently on the topic of aging. From how to study aging to the goals of society in aging to everything inbetween. From the stuff that works, to might works, to absolutely does not, this is an excellent overview of the field.
