9780615932040: Death is Wrong

If you have ever asked, “Why do people have to die?” then this book is for you. The answer is that no, death is not necessary, inevitable, or good. In fact, death is wrong. Death is the enemy of us all, to be fought with medicine, science, and technology. This book introduces you to the greatest, most challenging, most revolutionary movement to radically extend human lifespans so that you might not have to die at all. You will learn about some amazingly long-lived plants and animals, recent scientific discoveries that point the way toward lengthening lifespans in humans, and simple, powerful arguments that can overcome the common excuses for death. If you have ever thought that death is unjust and should be defeated, you are not alone. Read this book, and become part of the most important quest in human history. This book was written by the philosopher and futurist Gennady Stolyarov II and illustrated by the artist Wendy Stolyarov. It is here to show you that, no matter who you are and what you can do, there is always a way for you to help in humanity’s struggle against death. "I thought the book was fun to read and important in what it tries to accomplish." - Zoltan Istvan, Psychology Today

Review:

  • "I thought the book was fun to read and important in what it tries to accomplish." - Psychology Today
  • "As a transhumanist, I was pleased to discover the nonfiction children's book Gennady Stolyarov II and his wife Wendy Stolyarov recently created and published." - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET)
  • "Not too grammatically complex, and not too excruciatingly simplistic, Death is Wrong is a blunt dose of reality, quick to the punch and holding nothing back. This is the book I wish I'd have read as a young child." - The Proactionary Transhumanist


  • "The language is just saccharine enough for children to dig into, but the portentous themes will strike deep, philosophical chords in adults. The overall message is positive: The way technology is headed, we should be able to continue discovering and doing the things we love indefinitely." - Fast Company


  • "The book makes a philosophical case for why death is the enemy. [...] Stolyarov also bucks the idea that aging inevitably means inching closer to death. He and other life-extension advocates make a point to differentiate between 'aging,' the passage of time, and 'senescence,' the biological breakdown of the body." - Motherboard


  • "Gennady Stolyarov II and his wife Wendy Stolyarov do not believe in death. They think science and technology can solve it and, until it does, we need to begin thinking that our end is not a foregone conclusion. [...] First, they think, the cultural perception of mortality has to be changed, and the best method to achieve that goal is to begin with teaching children." - Huffington Post


  • "The book, written for children ages eight and above, is filled with more text - not to mention more philosophic and scientific reasoning - than the average Dr. Seuss. [...] Its final message is a call to action: Dying is wrong, children, but through scientific progress you can make it right." - Mashable
