Discussing "The Science of Radical Life Extension" with TED Books author David Ewing Duncan
Continuing with our series of TED Book Chats.... How long do you want to live, and why?
For the next two weeks, we'll be discussing David Ewing Duncan's new eBook, "When I'm 164", on the science of radical life extension. Duncan surveys the increasingly legitimate science — from genetics and regeneration to machine solutions — and considers the pluses and minuses of living to age 164, or beyond. We'll look at everything from the impact of extended life on cities, services, and the cost of living as well as what happens to love, curiosity, and general health.
The book is available for Kindle, Nook, and iOS devices (which have a great new custom TED Books app):
Kindle copy: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008XB16ME/
iOS app: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ted-books/id511071050?mt=8
The New York Times also published an excerpt this week, you can read it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/26/sunday-review/how-long-do-you-want-to-live.html
Finally, author David Ewing Duncan will be joining us for a live Q&A at 4pm EDT on September 11th!
Looking forward to our discussion!
