Publisher's Summary

In Transcend, famed futurist Ray Kurzweil and his coauthor, Terry Grossman, MD, present a cutting-edge, accessible program based on the vanguard in nutrition and science. They've distilled thousands of scientific studies to make the case that new developments in medicine and technology will allow us to radically extend our life expectancies and slow the aging process.

Transcend gives you the practical tools you need to live long enough (and remain healthy long enough) to take full advantage of the biotech and nanotech advances that have already begun and will continue to occur at an accelerating pace during the years ahead. To help you remember the nine key components of the program, Ray and Terry have arranged them into a mnemonic: Talk with Your Doctor, Relaxation, Assessment, Nutrition, Supplements, Calorie Reduction, Exercise, New Technologies, Detoxification.

This easy-to-follow program will help you transcend the boundaries of your genetic legacy and live long enough to live forever.

No supplemental materials means useless

This audiobook is largely useless because it does not include any of the charts or tables. If the subject matter of this book is of genuine interest to you, this audiobook might as well be even more worthless than a paperweight (bc it can't even hold down paper). Shameful. If you're gonna spend the money on this, get a version that is actually useful. I regret wasting my money on this.

The WORST

This was easily one of the worst listening experiences I’ve had with this app. No accompanying pdf for TONS of references to it. Multiple perspectives used in the book were confusing which made a bad situation even worse. I’ll admit the actual info was fascinating but literally everything else was terrible. Just not good.

Must read

I think it's a must read for everyone, doesn't matter the age. In fact the younger the better.

Buy the book instead

Not great in the audible version. Many recipes and tables are mentioned. I suspect the book would be more useful.
