Aging is a disease, physician Klatz and science writer Kahn maintain, as becomes more obvious every time medical science discovers another way to reverse the effects of such severe age-associated afflictions as stroke and heart attack. They stress the benefits of human growth hormone--HGH. Aging typically begins when the body's production of HGH starts falling off, and it has been shown clinically and experimentally that injections of HGH have helped aging people lose weight and increase muscle mass, regain lost strength and endurance, resharpen memory and visual acuity, restore sexual function, and even bring hair back where it had fled. Thus, the first half of their book. The second consists of advice on finding an antiaging doctor, hormone therapy, and boosting natural hormone production through diet and exercise. In the epilogue, Klatz and Kahn predict that in 55 years, "physical immortality will be a reality." Many may scoff at that conclusion, but HarperCollins is betting a 150,000-copy first printing that those bent on getting better, not older, will find what precedes it irresistible. Ray Olson
