The Immortalists David M. Friedman
The Immortalists is the remarkable story of how two men of prodigious achievements, and equally large character flaws, challenged nature's oldest rule - with personal, professional and political consequences that neither man had anticipated.
David M. Friedman has done what no previous observer of Charles Lindbergh has ever done: he has cast a piercing light into the murky depths that have surrounded the story of the extraordinary collaboration between Lindbergh and Dr. Alexis Carrel.
For a book that ranges over such challenging subjects as bioengineering, medical research and offensive theories of racial superiority, The Immortalists is - amazingly- an exciting read. Friedman is, simply put, a great storyteller.'
