Lifespan: Why we age – and why we don’t have to by Dr David Sinclair, €28

David Sinclair believes that a child born today could live to the age of 150. It may seem an outlandish claim, but then he knows more than most people on this planet about the science of ageing.

The acclaimed Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School has received over 150 awards for his medical research and, in 2014, he was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 more influential people on earth.

In his latest book, Lifespan, Dr Sinclair reveals that everything we think we know about ageing is wrong and he shares surprising, scientifically proven methods to help readers live younger for longer.

He believes that ageing is not inevitable, that it is actually a disease and, as such, it’s curable.The key is activating newly discovered vitality genes, the descendants of an ancient genetic survival circuit that is both the cause of ageing and the key to reversing it.
