Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman, M.D. follow up their hit book Fantastic Voyage, Life Long Enough to Live Forever with TRANSCEND: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever. The official release date is tomorrow, April 28. The book is full of advice on – among other things – taking care of your brain, heart, and metabolic processes. Lots of nutritional (eating) and exercise advice, along with the expected vitamin and nutrient supplement suggestions. Some of you may be old enough to remember Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach Adding Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw from the early ’80s.
The approaches are a bit different. Pearson and Shaw, while they made some lifestyle recommendations, were very much into the idea that you could eat what you like, smoke what you like, and so on and make up for the damage with appropriate nutrients etcetera. They also used to appear on TV and in person in all-leather heavy metal garb, long hair, spikey neck chains… the whole schmeer. Kurzweil and Grossman have lots of recommendations that will require lifestyle changes and discipline. Pearson and Shaw were more fun, and I don’t think we’ll see Ray and Terry trying to look like members of Motorhead anytime soon, but I’m afaid Kurzweil and Dr. Grossman are probably correct.
In any case, the book is well-written and bound to become another classic.
