In 2004, Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman, MD, published Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever. Their groundbreaking book marshaled 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 down the aging process. Soon, our notion of what it means to be a 55-year-old will be as outdated as an eight-track tape player.

TRANSCEND: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever presents a practical, enjoyable program so that readers can live long enough (and remain healthy long enough) to take full advantage of the biotech and nanotech advances that have already begun and will be occurring at an accelerating pace during the years ahead. To help readers remember the nine key components of the program, Ray and Terry have arranged them into a mnemonic:

T alk with your doctor
R elaxation
A ssessment
N utrition
S upplementation
C alorie reduction
E xercise
N ew technologies
D etoxification

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

Excellent book full of health information and advice. Ray takes a lot of supplements every day, although some of the advice in his Fantastic Voyage book have been toned down for this updated version. Ray's optimism is wonderful and I wouldn't bet against his predictions for human longevity although they certainly sound incredible compared to where we are today.
