Product Description

This will be the seminal book on the science of ageing, and will do for ageing what Matthew Walker's Why We Sleep (nearly 250,000 TCM) did for sleep.Dr Andrew Steele is a computational biologist with a PhD in physics. A Research Fellow at the Francis Crick Institute in London, he also has extensive experience communicating science to the public and has featured in or on the Guardian, Sky News, BBC Radio 4's Inside Science and The One Show, among others.Packed with cutting-edge science and medical breakthroughs that haven't yet been widely communicated to the public, Ageless will ask serious questions about the future of medicine and humanity, while also serving as a primer on human biology.Andrew Steele is a scientist, writer and campaigner. After a PhD in physics from the University of Oxford, he decided that ageing was the single most important scientific challenge of our time and switched fields to computational biology. He has worked at the Francis Crick Institute, using machine learning to decode our DNA. He lives in London.

'A stunner ... If you haven't got this book in your house, I don't know why' Chris Evans

'A startling wake-up call . . . Writing with the vim of a Bill Bryson and the technical knowledge of a scientist, Steele gives us a chance to grasp what's at stake' Independent 'An exhilarating journey . . . Steele is a superb guide' Telegraph 'A fascinating read with almost every page bursting with extraordinary facts . . . Read it now' Mail on Sunday Ageless is a guide to the biggest issue we all face. Ageing - not cancer, not heart disease - is the world's leading cause of death and suffering. What would the world be like if we could cure it? Living disease-free until the age of 100 is achievable within our lifetimes. In prose that is lucid and full of fascinating facts, Ageless introduces us to the cutting-edge research that is paving the way for this revolution. Computational biologist Andrew Steele explains what occurs biologically as we age, as well as practical ways we can slow down the process. He reveals how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest discovery in the history of civilisation - one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars, and transform the human condition.What if we could slow down the process of ageing - or even stop it?A tour de force of anti-ageing scienceSteele is a superb guide to the wilder fringes of real medicine . . . He understands that ageing is an experience to be lived meaningfully and fully, as well as a fascinating medical problem to be solved. His vision is very tightly controlled . . . I heartily recommend Ageless. It's modest in scope, and generous in detail. It's an honest and optimistic contributionAmbitious and energetic . . . Give[s] a startling round-up of the biological factors that make us age and the emerging techniques to tackle them . . . Writing with the vim of a Bill Bryson and the technical knowledge of a scientist, Steele gives us a chance to grasp what's at stake in this dazzling, daunting age where big data meets human biologyAgeless employs a scientific vocabulary - autophagy, amyloids, adducts and countless other specialised terms abound. But the book is nevertheless accessible, its style chatty and engaging . . . This is an enthralling book . . . Ageless is a rich and exciting exploration of that surprisingly intriguing topic we'd rather not talk about: old ageA fascinating read with almost every page bursting with extraordinary facts . . . Steele is not a crank or a snake-oil salesman. He's not a 'wellness' YouTuber. He doesn't work for Goop. He's a biologist . . . We can take what he says seriouslyThere are some incredible revelations in this book. The science is fascinating . . . What Steele says is both revolutionary and important - life-changing in the true sense of the word. His thinking is bold, visionary, utopianA fascinating book delivering an education into the ageing process and an insight into the possibilities of the futureAn immensely important book. Steele surveys the biology of human ageing, as well as the cutting-edge research on how to prevent it. The first person to achieve immortality may already have been born. Is it you?!This is an essential book for anyone interested in the fast-developing science of longevityAgeless is a fascinating, stimulating and pleasingly practical guide to the science of ageing and how we might be able to bend the arrow of biological time to improve our healthFew issues can be more important for our future than ensuring we age as well as possible. Ageless explains the extraordinary achievements and promise of current scientific research around longevity. Read it and prepare to think differently about your futureIn his book Ageless, Andrew Steele describes how the field of ageing biology moved from hope to promise. This is a masterful roadmap for interested lay people, scientists at large and also geroscientists like myself - I was surprised how much I learnedA fascinating look at how scientists are working to help doctors treat not just one disease at a time, but the ageing process itself, helping us all to lead longer, healthier livesA rigorous yet enjoyably readable, spellbinding tale
