Prepare to hear less about genetic research, the science of cryogenics, or the feasibility of living to 1,000, and more about the crazy things he saw at a seance, the costume he wore to an immortality party, Aubre De Grey's biography, and EVERY LAST WORD OF EVERY LAST CONVERSATION he had while researching this book.
Every interview, conversation, or encounter of relevance is not only depicted in excruciating detail, but is also preceded by pages and pages and pages explaining the process of tracking people down, or attending certain events. Gollner writes in editorial fashion, as if he has a loyal following of readers eager to know what it was like for him personally to learn about immortality, what Gollner thought about the people he met, and what his opinion of the information was. I really couldn't care less Gollner, just tell me what you learned. A modest estimate of the fluff:content ratio of this book is 10:1. Only thick books sell I guess.
To Gollner's credit, he put a lot of work into researching this book. He spoke personally with some big names in the field, and traveled all over the place to do so, and there is some good info buried under the mountains of storytelling. I just wish this were more like a book about immortality and less like a "making of" book.
