Summary
What does the man who has everything - fame, fortune, a new love, and a new baby - want for his fiftieth birthday? The answer is simple: eternal life. Determined to shake off the first intimations of his approaching demise, Frédéric tries every possible procedure to ward off death, examining both legal and illegal research into techniques that could lead to the imminent replacement of man with a post-human species. Accompanied by his ten-year-old daughter and her robot friend, Frédéric crisscrosses the globe to meet the world's foremost researchers on human longevity, who--from cell rejuvenation and telomere lengthening to 3D-printed organs and digitally stored DNA--reveal their latest discoveries. With his blend of deadpan humour and clear-eyed perception, Beigbeder has penned a brutal and brilliant exposé of the enduring issue of our own mortality
