Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The premise of David Ewing Duncan's When I'm 164 is quite simple: it asks the reader, "how long do you want to live?" The topics he explores to support the reasoning behind each of his possible answers--80 years, 120 years, 150 years, or forever--however, are anything but simple. Duncan, a best-selling author and correspondent for Atlantic.com and NPR, goes beyond simplistic explanations like being able to spend more time with family and meeting great-great-great grandchildren in order to touch on the scientific, cultural and socio-economic impacts of extreme aging. Accessible and engaging explanations of breakthroughs in the fields of medicine and technology help to illustrate how each answer to the question of desired lifespan is actually plausible (yes, even the desire to live forever is plausible--to some degree). From Silicon Valley think-tanks to growing new organs in petri dishes, Duncan explores the science of anti-aging that could make very long lives possible. He also provides a balanced debate between the anti-agers who believe that longer lifespans are better and those who are concerned about what extended lifespans will do to society--not to mention the planet's economies and resources. Based on a TEDx talk given in Brussels, When I'm 164 is a fascinating picture of the anti-aging technology available today, what may be on the horizon tomorrow and what that means for society as a whole. --Malissa Kent
