A classic which should have been converted to e-book long ago, well worth the time to seek out at the library, and barring that, well worth the extra money for anyone who believes in the ultimate potential of the human race to eventually overcome it's own mortality.
On a side note: A perfect supplement to Harrington's Utopia chapter is Asimov's "The Last Question", free for download.
This book reviews the possibility of making people immortal and examines the philosophical and other consequences of doing so. It is a wonderful concept, and turns the book into a model giant essay, providing an excuse for examining the key role that death plays in human civilization. They don't write 'em like this any more.
Someone should start writing The New Immortalist. It's about time.
