Ending Aging

If you are looking for an accessible description of SENS research, our Chief Science Officer, Dr Aubrey de Grey, together with co-author Michael Rae, has written a book entitled Ending Aging. The book speaks to a broad audience, but it does so without 'dumbing down' the science at all. It is the ideal resource for either the biologist or the non-biologist, whether encountering SENS for the first time or wishing to absorb more of its details. Copies are available from your local bookstore or from Amazon.com. The details are: de Grey ADNJ, Rae M. Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime. New York, NY: St. Martin's Press, 2007, 416pp, hardcover, ISBN 0-312-36706-6; or there is a paperback edition with an additional chapter covering more recent developments, ISBN 0-312-36707-4.
