The list author says: "Ted Williams. And the woman whose head was just granted to Alcor. Cryonics could be a crackpot money-making scheme, or a realistic medical procedure to cure death until nanotechnology can repair your mind and put your brain in an artificial body -- like an iron lung, but better..."
"Mary Shelley gets kudos for writing the first sci-fi novel. Frankenstein's monster wasn't frozen, so not technically cryonics, but the good doctor did bring dead tissue back to life. Brilliant concept and human insight. An immortal classic."
"Ray Kurzweil is the non-fiction king of life-extension technologies. Well, some of it may waver over the fictional line, but most of it is at least possible, whether near-future or not-so-near future..."
"An inside look into the world of cryonics, or a disgruntled employee sticking it to the man? It definitely reads much more like the latter, way over the top in his bitterness and probably just trying to make a buck, but still manages some interesting insights into the behind-the-scenes."
"From a scientific and realistic standpoint, this novel about the first people to have extended life through cryonics works pretty well. Unfortunately, it lacks good characters and drama. Not a page turner."
