ARNOLD KLING LOOKS AT AUBREY DE GREY’S NEW BOOK, ENDING AGING: “Too often, academics use their credentials to spit out biased polemics dressed up as science. Ending Aging is the opposite. It is a crash course in state-of-the-art science dressed up as a polemic. De Grey wears his passion for undertaking a war on aging on his sleeve, yet most of the book consists of scientific analysis that, although simplified to enable a layman to follow, is conscientious in reporting doubts and objections to the author’s point of view.”

Kling is more optimistic about a scientific revolution, though, than about a paradigm-shift in government institutions, which seems right to me.
