Description: In Long for This World, Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Weiner takes the reader on an intellectual quest to find out whether there is any validity to the belief-held by many highly intelligent individuals-that human immortality is not only possible, but attainable in our own time. From Berkeley to the Bronx, from Cambridge University to Dante's Tomb in Ravenna, Weiner meets the leading minds in the field and he tells the dramatic story of how aging could once and for all be conquered by the latest scientific advances. Long for This World displays Weiner's abilities as a natural storyteller and an intrepid reporter, demonstrating his gift for making cutting-edge science understandable. "I love this book. It is a mesmerizing blend of vivid (sometimes hilarious) reporting, wide-ranging scholarship, and the thoughtful probing of a great mystery. Like everything Jonathan Weiner does, it is far more than the sum of its parts."-James Gleick
