Praise

“His fascinating account will interest those who want to know more about Silicon Valley’s rainmakers, as well as where science now stands on preventing and curing disease.” –Publishers Weekly

“Chip Walter has written an extraordinary book. What a cast. What a story. What a book.”
–William Shatner
 
“Can we live forever? Maybe, maybe not. But either way, you’ll love the book. More than anything, Walter is a first rate story teller. He walks a fine line, delivering excellent science while mesmerizing you with the nitty gritty details behind the histories and personal stories of the book’s main characters. And at bottom are big and universal questions. You’ll never see the question of our mortality in quite the same way after reading this book. And you’ll never be bored.” - Judy Cameron, Professor and Director of the Healthy Brain Aging Workgroup, University of Pittsburgh

“The quest to conquer aging is one of the most extraordinary developments in science today. We may not live to see the end of it, but we can watch the beginning. Immortality, Inc. is a colorful, entertaining, and up-to-date tour of the frontier.” –Jonathan Weiner, [Pulitzer Prize–winning] author of The Beak of the Finch and Long for This World
 
“If you think everybody talks about immortality but few do anything about it, Chip Walter’s bold examination of those who do is worth the read.”—Herbert Boyer, co-founder of Genentech, Inc., and professor emeritus, University of California–San Francisco
 
When future generations find themselves living in a world where life spans reach hundreds of years, readers can look back at Walter’s book to see how it all started. This book will age well.”
—Anthony Lake, former National Security Advisor and Executive Director of UNICEF
 
“Chip Walter has written a wickedly compelling account of an endeavor that seems ridiculously far-fetched—until you read it. Then it seems enticingly real. The book reads like a thriller, and has some of the clearest explanations of tough science I’ve ever read. I actually now believe these folks can do something like they imagine. Crazy! Or is it…?”
—Grant Oliphant, president of the Heinz Endowments and author of Ring of Years
 
“I don’t know whether I want to live forever, but in his captivating and informative book, Immortality, Inc., Chip Walter tells us how and when it might just happen. Walter’s crisp, clear, colorful prose and his compelling character portraits transform the illusive and unlikely idea of immortality into a vivid and exciting read.”—Lee Gutkind, editor, of Creative Nonfiction
 
“With a reporter’s energy and curiosity, Chip Walter has pursued . . . the scientists, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and others who share a conviction, or a hope, that age is a curable disease.” —Jeffrey Frank, author of Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage
 
“Chip Walter has a unique talent for using humorous figures of speech and insightful factoids to turn the droll subject of death research into something curious and interesting [and] gives the reader a chance to be a ‘fly on the wall’ in the most important board rooms of Silicon Valley.”
—Martine Rothblatt, creator of Sirius XM and CEO, United Therapeutics Corporation
