Date: June 2010
Duration: 8 hours 31 minutes
"[A] searching and surprisingly witty look at the scientific odds against tomorrow."
Jonathan Weiner-winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and one of the most distinguished popular science writers in America-examines "the strange science of immortality" in Long for This World. A fast-paced, sure-to-astonish scientific adventure from "one of our finest science journalists" (Jonah Lehrer), Weiner's Long for This World addresses the ageless question, "Is there a secret to eternal youth?" And has it, at long last, been found?
