Reader Review
"Longevity research usually is buried deep in scientific journals inaccessible to lay readers, but in A Guide to the Fountain of Youth, Dr. Leo Marcus presents a slim but important synthesis of longevity research selected from the published findings of noted scientists whose work was funded by organizations and individuals seeking longevity. These are books used by physicians, so authority lends to listings on major causes of ill health and decreased life span, from arthritis to common diseases."
