MAR 21 / SAT / 7:30 PM
From acclaimed journalist Bill Gifford comes a roaring journey, separating the wheat from the chaff as he exposes hoaxes and scams foisted upon an aging society. Gifford arms readers with the best possible advice on what to do, what “not”to do, and what life-changing treatments may be right around the corner. A mixture of deep reporting, fascinating science, and prescriptive takeaway, this is a brilliant examination of a universal obsession: what can be done about getting old?
“Spring Chicken is an utterly marvelous book – a guided tour of a fantastic, counterintuitive landscape (that happens to be your body), and also a whip-smart guide to living a longer and healthier life. With this book, Bill Gifford joins the ranks of Mary Roach and Bill Bryson as a science writer supreme, illuminating our world in a page-turning style that is as entertaining as it is enlightening.”
