In Ageless, Andrew Steele, a computational biologist and science writer, takes us on a journey through the laboratories where scientists are studying every bodily system that declines with age — DNA, mitochondria, stem cells, our immune systems — and developing therapies to reverse the trend. With bell-clear writing and intellectual passion, Steele shines a spotlight on a little-known revolution already underway.


Customer Reviews

“An optimistic exploration of aging . . . A diligent scientist, Steele does not ignore flops and fads . . . Good science in service of a convincing case that vast life extension is inevitable.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Steele succeeds in bringing some of the ethical and policy issues surrounding the field of biogerontology [into] this thorough, yet accessible narrative . . . A solid read for those interested in biological sciences research, and anyone looking to learn more about aging in general.”

— Library Journal
