Curator Reviews

Deepak Chopra

This book offers the best scientific guide to anti-aging and the perplexing question of why we age in the first place; in the future, Blackburn's work on how DNA degrades over time could stand up as the key breakthrough in the field. The fact that Blackburn won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009 testifies to her important findings, but it is also a symbolic victory for all the women who did major historic work on DNA, brain chemistry, space exploration, and other fields without receiving their due.
