Description
Combining memoir, popular science, and not a small portion of self-promotion, West (CEO of Advanced Cell Technology, Inc.) describes his companies efforts to using cloning techniques to turn "old" cells into "young" ones, theoretically beating the effects of human aging. He also recounts his part in the stem-cell controversy that erupted into the headlines when President George W. Bush denounced West's work from the Rose Garden of the White House.
