    1. What a crazy read. Very few nonfiction books I grab randomly at the library end up grabbing me back. But this one blew my mind. It's so poorly written. It's filled with so many exclamation points and misguided logic. But CRYONICS! Hello‽ To see such passion lead down so many shaky slopes. To learn a bit about something I didn't know. Remember the saying about how some people get so caught up thinking about whether they COULD do something that that never stopped to think about whether they SHO [...]

    2. Focuses more on the business side of cryonics and what happens when you don't get people to pay up front.

    3. I've always had mixed feeling about cryonics: on the one hand they're the oldest and most established Transhumanist branch; on the other, I can't believe that the unfreezing process will ever work, and that if it does the post-Singularity 25th century (or whenever) will be a friendly place for 21st century primates. That said, Nelson's book gave me a lot more sympathy for the movement.It was not science, it was bunch of 1960s lunatics and optimists who had read a book (The Prespect of Immortalit [...]

    4. Bob Nelson had a fairly sad life, IMHO. And, if he were just a little less sentimental, maybe it wouldn't have been so. But at least the book ended on a good note: “we should not dampen our optimism about the great benefits that futurediscoveries can deliver. Two hundred years ago, flying the clouds would have been among miraculous, an astonishing gift of the gods. Now it is ordinary, even boring. With each new invention and discovery, our perception shifts. If you could talk to a caveman toda [...]

    5. Interesting history lessonThis book is an interesting first person account of the sacrifices made when you believe truly in something and have the intention to help people. I enjoyed learning the historical aspects of cryogenic and about how the first man was frozen as well as the struggles and losses. It really was and can still be a science experiment that is being worked out. Who knows, someday they may really make it happen.

    6. This is a really interesting story that you rarely hear about. Definitely worth reading to get the back story on an important part of LA history.
