Recent advances in medicine and technology have expanded our understanding of aging across the animal kingdom and accelerated our timeless quest for the fountain of youth. Yet, despite modern humans living longer today than ever before, the public's understanding of what is possible has been limited to our own species--until now. In this exploration, immortality is revealed to be a superpower within reach. With mind-bending stories from the natural world and the human one, Jellyfish Age Backwards reveals life spans we cannot imagine and physiological gifts that feel closer to magic than reality.
Level-headed ... his advice... is delivered with good humor and realism. Short chapters built from short, declarative sentences combine with familiar material to give Jellyfish Age Backwards the feel of an introductory survey rather than a novel argument. Perhaps its piecewise construction is only a reflection of the disjointed state of the subject.
