There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Reading it however, goes well into a third or half of the book at most, as the author narrates a long thought with short side stories, to give you a summary of conclusions based on his research, studies, and those of others, as he pieces them together. After that, I slowly started loosing it (the thread, not like A.), and then, really lost, to the point I had to lay it aside, and there is no way of getting help from an index (absent), headings (absent), titles of chapters (no chapters; no titles), etc., as the book starts pasting copies of medical reports one after another, without indications of who or what they mean.
This is aside from the fact that, even though the author made an effort to bring the message in 'common people's language', medical knowledge and terms/abbreviations tend to blindside one still, in reading, without 'help' being available (i.e. what about short abbreviation lists at the start of a chapter/paragraph ?).
On the redeeming side (hence the title of the review) then; the effort to make this unique insight available to a large audience (the 'world') alone, is something to be grateful for. In short, the author has had a lifelong interest in the process of aging, and made a connection to the A. disease approximately 20 years ago, with certain hormones being the connection between the two. He then stumbled upon connections between agents/hormones that counteract those same hormones that are responsible for both aging and the disease, especially so in (small-scale) studies with real humans, and confirmed by finding in studies with animals; hence, the real potential for a cure.
It is obvious that the author has a certain amount of grudge and contempt in regards to established medical science, scientists, etc., and the pharmaceutical industries that employ those, as he is also pointing out why a finding like the one he did (and others) never made/makes it to mainstream medical world, with the take-way being that; there is no money in it, because the potential curing agents/hormones, are already readily available to everyone, both in 'over-the-counter' format, as well as by doctor prescription (good luck though, getting that doctor on board); personally I would put my hopes in the 'over-the-counter' hormone, Melatonine in this case, which as we know is active in sleep cycles in humans (i.e. we take it to get over a jet lag), for more than one reason; less (severe) side-effects, easily available. What's there to loose, why not start today ?
Concluding; if this were properly edited, it would be a five+ stars; hence, four stars mainly for content/ideas, and would recommend it.
