HALL OF FAMEon April 24, 2001
The science of longevity & anti-ageing medicine are making such rapid strides that this book, published in 1996, might not be on the cutting edge as far as the latest nutrient research is concerned. However it still deserves 5 stars for its in-depth treatment of all the major issues and nutrient discoveries up to 1996 and for its readable style.
Klatz and Goldman deal with theories of aging, the natural hormones (melatonin, DHEA, hGH etc.), the miracle minerals and vital anti-oxidants, exercise, nutrition and how to handle stress. It's important to note that an anti-aging lifestyle is not only designed to extend one's life, but also to ensure a healthy, happy and quality existence at any age.
The chapter on the pioneers of anti-aging medicine and their personal secrets of longevity are particularly interesting and informative. The exercise section is very well illustrated and there are a couple of other graphs and figures to illumine the text.
The book contains a glossary, appendices on anti-aging specialists, institutes, research and educational organizations, an extensive bibliography and a thorough index.
I would also like to recommend "The Superhormone Promise" by William Regelson and "Renewal" by Timothy J. Smith. These three books together will make you an anti-aging expert. Just remember to apply this good advice!

While simplistic and less then scientific at times, this book gives a good coverage to the new rising anti aging supplements. The book is a good start up point for the reader to extend their personal research from.

The text as said is less then scientific but then again what percentage of the readership would be able to follow it if it was. As common ground text goes this is quite a good one, giving you food for thought and some general understanding.

I read "Grow Young with HGH" along with "Stopping the Clock". Stopping the Clock gives you the information about HGH and its other ant-aging associates which can make it synergistic. I reviewed the different HGH products out there and came up with what I thought was the best HGH product on the line and I was NOT dissapointed! I lost fat and gained muscle along with better concentration and energy. Thank you Dr. Klatz for the information!

After hearing friends and associates getting more energy and also sexual resurection from HGH / DHEA, I read this book and found out you do not have to age at a pre-determined rate. This book gives you the knowledge to make a choice. OK! I'll give it a try.

I haven't read the whole book - but it is very informative so far and offers the reader great ideas on staying healthy. This book is for all age groups.

This book focuses on anti-aging more from a scientific and external viewpoint as opposed to a more spiritual and internal outlook. To achieve immortality, one needs a holistic approach, with focus primarily on the spiritual thereby having the opportunity to study, experience and learn from all possible areas since all of life is interconnected.

The authors discuss 4 main theories of aging - the wear and tear theory, the neuroendocrine theory, the genetic control theory and the free radical theory, while making mention of various other theories as well. The middle part of the book focuses on various drugs & supplements like melatonin, DHEA, hGH, thyroid, estrogen and progesterone, testosterone, minerals like chromium, selenium and magnesium, and anti-oxidants like vitamin C, E & A, beta-carotene and CoQ-10. They discuss their effects on the body, various studies performed, and how it effects aging. They also discuss exercises, a long-life diet and how the mind is the most important factor in aging - including information on meditation, relaxation, breath control, massage and control of thinking. They finish the book with a longevity test, and focus on various individuals over the age of 60, their lifestyles and the extra-ordinary feats they performed. This book with regards to nutrition and mind-over-matter is slowly but surely proving that science is only validating the ancients. Finally this book is missing one of the most important ingredients in longevity - fasting!

Books I would recommend to actually achieve immortality are Linda Goodman's Star Signs and the list of books in the appendix, (she actually instructs on immortality) Game of Life and How to Play It, Secrets of the Soil, The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ, books by Dr Paul Brunton, books by Vera Stanley Alder, Your Body's Many Cries for Water, Alkalize or Die, the Secret Teachings of all Ages (numerous immortals listed), Bikram's Beginning Yoga Class, and finally books by Steve Meyerowitz.
