A New Scientist "best book of the year 2012"
"An epic inquiry into the human desire to defy death – and how to overcome it." -- The Financial Times
"Fascinating." -- The Economist
"Immortality is a must-read exploration of what spurs human ingenuity... He presents an extremely compelling case - one that has changed my view of the driving force of civilisation as much as Jared Diamond did years ago with his brilliant book Guns, Germs and Steel." -- The New Scientist
