One hears all manner of rationalizations and just plain misconceptions to accept the status quo. More than 40 years ago (!!) Dr. Ettinger made, still to this day, the most eloquent and passionate appeal to assure a practically immortal future for every commoner who wants one.
For my complete review of this book and for other book and movie
reviews, please visit my site [...]
Also, I just began reading Ettinger's newest work, Youniverse, and he mentions in one of the introductions that this book, as well as another earlier work of his, Man Into Superman, is available for FREE from w w w . cryonics . o r g (minus the spaces - Amazon usually removes links, which is the reason for the spaces). You can find all of Ettinger's books other than Youniverse, as well as some essays by Ettinger, under Resources on the website (when you click on Resources, there are links on the right, and indented under Cryonics Reading List is Works by Robert Ettinger, where you can find the books and essays).
Hope this review helps you save some money, and enjoy the book!!

Any serious student of cryonics needs this book. It is not nearly as readable or as "slick" as other modern books on the subject , as it was written at a time before there we any signposts to go by in this field.
I rate this book 5 stars for its significance rather than its "readability". In terms of being a cryonics primer, this is not the book you want, all you need for a primer is 2-3 hours on the alcor.com website. (the most prominent of the cryopreservation firms)
The fact that this book does not have more visibility than it does is a crime.
