    1. It's a borderline material between an academic paper and popularization of science book. But it proved to be an interesting book! An impressive research was done to make it and in the end this is outlined by the 12 pages of references. You'll find a lot of comparisons of similar species. So what is the aging gap between species? What is the specific difference? Why some live longer? You have to read it to find out.A recommended read for students or just anybody who want to expand his knowledge a [...]

    2. Fascinating and informative!This is the second book I have read from Anca Ioviţă and I love it. It is very well written, with great examples, case studies and references to validate her positions. Anca sets out to try and bring the process of aging into a bit clearer focus, and though it is not written solely for academia, it is also not something you can read in an hour. She introduces a lot of medical concepts that may take a bit of effort for the average reader to wrap their heads around. T [...]

    3. A fascinating read and proof that you don't have to be a scientist to enjoy academic books on science. The key to the success of the book is in the many, varied examples from the animal kingdom. the author uses an example for each and every fact she presents and that keeps the book interesting and actually lively. Not easy to do with medical nonfiction! I knew nothing about this topic before I read the book but it sounded interesting and ended up going far beyond my expectations. Now I understan [...]

    4. I loved reading about biology and science in high school and college but haven't been able to find the time lately. I've read another of Anca's books and knew that it would be well-written and in language that even the non-researcher could understand.Anca studies aging throughout different species and provides some really interesting examples like in the salmon which dies almost immediately after spawning to some other types of fish that seemingly never age. It really gets you thinking about the [...]

    5. Two important things about this book: Right, any theory about aging must be provide a explanation for the difference in aging between species, but must be do this, first, in a relation of proximity, e.i genders or families. And, after that, try to extend the findings to others groups in the vicinity. The reason for this is : The process of aging is the result of the adaptation of the species, so the "mechanism" underlying, both, aging and anti-aging (firstly, the last one) possibly are different [...]

    6. The author's attempt to write in plain language was admirable, and it was a daunting task they set themselves to do so, given the complexity and technicality of their discussion of the topic, but this book would have benefited from an editor, or perhaps a co-author experienced in technical writing for laypersons. As it stands, reading this was like reading the notes a student would take during an animal gerontology class. The information may well have been correct, but the text was riddled with [...]
