“If you are teaching or you intend to teach an undergraduate or even a graduate course on biogerontology, then this is the one to use as the text book. Unlike numerous multi-author compilations on various aspects of ageing, this single author book is perhaps the best one to come out with a great potential for becoming a highly useful and popular book....[Biology of Aging] is highly readable and the use of drawings and pictures is extensive and appropriate….I recommend it highly for its value as an introductory textbook in biogerontology.”--Biogerontology
"It is clear that modulating aging and longevity in the upcoming years will be an important area of scientific research, and this textbook offers a sufficient framework that would be a significant resource for anyone interested in these new directions for the future." -- Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
