In this provocative book on the process of growing old, Michael Rose goes right to the heart of a fundamental "unsolved problem" of biology. Why do we grow old? Rose answers the questions by proposing an evolutionary theory of senescence - that the force of natural selection declines proportionally with age after the onset of reproduction - and elaborates with evidence from cell biology, physiology and gerontology. The strength of the book lies in Rose's unique ability to sunthesize the vast literature of this field into a stimulating and accessible volume.
