"Paul Bracken mixes ancient myth, modern science, and science fiction futurism on an intellectual quest to explore the meaning of human existence by confronting and challenging the inevitability of mortality. This is both a highly personal inquiry into the uniquely human knowledge of personal finitude . . . and a scientifically motivated investigation into the dreams and schemes to extend life."
