Publisher's Summary

The prospect of living to 200 years old isn’t science fiction anymore. A leader in the emerging field of longevity offers his perspective on what cutting-edge breakthroughs are on the horizon, as well as the practical steps we can take now to live healthily to 100 and beyond.

In The Science and Technology of Growing Young, industry investor and insider Sergey Young demystifies the longevity landscape, cutting through the hype and showing listeners what they can do now to live better for longer, and offering a look into the exciting possibilities that await us. By viewing aging as a condition that can be cured, we can dramatically revolutionize the field of longevity and make it accessible for everyone.

Join Sergey as he gathers insights from world-leading health entrepreneurs, scientists, doctors, and inventors, providing a comprehensive look into the future of longevity in two horizons:  

  • "The Near Horizon of Longevity" identifies the technological developments that will allow us to live to 150 - some of which are already in use - from AI-based diagnostics to gene editing and organ regeneration.
  • "The Far Horizon of Longevity" offers a tour of the future of age reversal and the exciting technologies that will allow us to live healthily to 200, from internet of bodies to digital avatars to AI-brain integration.

In a bonus chapter, Sergey also showcases 10 longevity choices that we already know and can easily implement to live to 100, distilling the science behind diet, exercise, sleep, mental health, and our environments into attainable habits and lifestyle hacks that anyone can adopt to vastly improve their lives and workplaces.

Combining practical advice with an incredible overview of the brave new world to come, The Science and Technology of Growing Young redefines what it means to be human and to grow young.

Beyond My Wildest Expectations

I am somewhat familiar with Mr. Young’s critical role in the fast-paced advancements in the field of aging. I follow the topic pretty closely, listening to podcasts and new audiobooks during my daily workouts, so I was expecting a rehash of things I already knew. Boy was I wrong. This book is a fascinating, detailed survey of recent advancements in aging which doesn’t get lost in the weeds. I learned a lot. I highly recommend this book.

exactly what I was hoping it would be! All right t

I wanted to get a book that was a really good introduction to this topic. I've been meeting with a life extension doctor for one year now and have done plenty of my own research here and there, but I wanted a great overview. and this was exactly that- thank you for writing!

Great book

What a great book and so easy to listen in. Sergey Young laying out all options and possibilities to extend life span for everyone to follow. I love his approach that most of the things he talks about are not just expensive treatments available for the richest but most of his approaches are available already now with a zero or low cost impact.

An awesome and interesting full spectrum story about longevity

Sergey has put together a full spectrum story on longevity in a way that is captivating and able to get you hooked on the subject. After finishing this book for the second time, I truly agree that the first person to age to 150 years old has already been born. I loved how Sergey also mentions the idea of how we as a society will be able to take care of and afford more and more people living well past 100.
Longevity is an interesting subject. One that I myself has already made many changes in my own life that Sergey proposes in this book.

Is this a window into the future?

The author makes some audacious statements of what the future might be like where we are 200 years old but look and feel like we are 25. However, he explains why he thinks that such things could be possible in our live times. Some of the information is common sense, some is cutting edge science, some is science fiction that might become reality someday. Overall, I was skeptical at first and now I am believe that there will be massive advancements in longevity.

not enough emphasis on the most important thing

I think this book did not tell the full story if the most important thing to longevity- a healthy diet

MBA in the field of Longevity

The book provides a comprehensive review of all verticals of the longevity space - from recent academic researches to common diet and wellbeing practices. Good start to increase your life span and level of happiness by any of the available and/or forthcomming tools. Nevertheless, the author is very carefully in advising on usage of any of the longevity tools/practices. Also like the depth of the author's thinking - from straight logic to philosophical considerations of ethical matrers. Highly recommend!
