Defying Death: Medicine’s Journey Toward Immortality aging book promotion by Bruno Leone & Michael A. Leone

Defying Death is an exciting exploration of where medicine may be heading in the future.
More specifically, it endeavors to illustrate how advances in modern medical technology often result in increases in human life expectancy.
“A thought-provoking overview on the subject of human longevity. Within the context of history, the authors examine medical science’s ever-growing list of discoveries – from the macroscopic to the microscopic – as though each was woven into a series of pathways leading toward a future of expanding life expectancies. The presentation is penetrating and insightful and dares to consider the question: Will it ever be possible for human beings to live indefinitely?” —Noah Mehr, MD, Department of Pathology, University of Chicago

​​Defying Death is a fascinating mix of history, evidence, and speculation that anyone with an interest in healthy aging, personal wellness, or scientific advancements in general will devour quickly and enthusiastically.
Will every new century or millennium fashion its own singular contribution to the additional number of years each human’s body and mind can expect to survive? And will this continue indefinitely?

Or does the story of humanity reach a chapter (or perhaps, “Grand Finale”) in which the body will no longer be needed?

Could it be that the collective consciousness of humanity will reside and even flourish on the hard drive of a computer (or some other such device), creating an almost endless future—one that a growing number of distinguished scientists, scholars, and transhumanists believe is humanity’s ultimate fate?

​​Defying Death will have both anti-aging true believers and skeptics convinced of our collective potential!
