For centuries, adventurers and scientists have believed that not only could we delay death but that "practical immortality" was within our reach. Today, many well-respected researchers would be inclined to agree. In a book that is not about anti-aging, but about functional aging--extending your healthy, active life--Dr. Sanjay Gupta blends together compelling stories of the most up-to-date scientific breakthroughs from around the world, with cutting-edge research and advice on achieving practical immortality in this lifetime. Gupta's advice is often counterintuitive: longevity is not about eating well, but about eating less; nutritional supplements are a waste of your money; eating chocolate and drinking coffee can make you healthier. CHASING LIFE tells the stories behind the breakthroughs while also revealing the practical steps readers can take to help extend youth and life far longer than ever thought possible.

An unborn baby with a fatal heart defect . . . a skier submerged for an hour in a frozen Norwegian lake . . . a comatose brain surgery patient whom doctors have declared a "vegetable." Twenty years ago all of them would have been given up for dead, with no realistic hope for survival. But today, thanks to incredible new medical advances, each of these individuals is alive and well . . .Cheating Death. In this riveting book, Dr. Sanjay Gupta-neurosurgeon, chief medical correspondent for CNN, and bestselling author-chronicles the almost unbelievable science that has made these seemingly miraculous recoveries possible. A bold new breed of doctors has achieved amazing rescues by refusing to accept that any life is irretrievably lost. Extended cardiac arrest, "brain death," not breathing for over an hour-all these conditions used to be considered inevitably fatal, but they no longer are. Today, revolutionary advances are blurring the traditional line between life and death in fascinating ways. Drawing on real-life stories and using his unprecedented access to the latest medical research, Dr. Gupta dramatically presents exciting accounts of how pioneering physicians and researchers are altering our understanding of how the human body functions when it comes to survival-and why more and more patients who once would have died are now alive. From experiments with therapeutic hypothermia to save comatose stroke or heart attack victims to lifesaving operations in utero to the study of animal hibernation to help wounded soldiers on far-off battlefields, these remarkable case histories transform and enrich all our assumptions about the true nature of death and life.

This book is not intended as medical advice or to replace Dr. Gupta's book. If you have health problems, consult with your physician. Keep Sharp is Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s comprehensive guide to cognitive dysfunction disease in its various forms, including dementia, and the prevention, treatment, and strategies to cope. As a White House fellow, he advised Hilary Clinton and earned a nomination in 2009 as Surgeon General by Barack Obama. Dr. Gupta practices not only as an American neurosurgeon but also as an author and medical reporter. Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta is proud to have him as the associate chief of neurosurgery. As a CNN analyst, Dr. Gupta reported on a wide range of subjects such as the medical applications of marijuana, the Coronavirus, and Iraq's invasion in 2003. Keep Sharp hit the printing presses as his fourth non-academic book Gupta bravely initiated a noble and global quest to gather up and analyze how doctors tackle brain function problems and cognitive challenges. He holds an impressive list of characters and anecdotes from his efforts. After contemplating becoming a writer, Gupta gravitated towards medicine when his beloved grandfather suffered a stroke and lost his ability to speak. Gupta then studied the role the brain plays in heart conditions. His mother and father also met with circulatory disease adversity—and worked hard to do what was necessary to survive. Gupta shares with the reader some of his most memorable experiences from his cognitive ailments quest. The Dalai Lama took the time to teach Gupta the basics of meditation. Bill Gates supported his research. Now deceased, Stephen Hawking suffered from debilitating illness but managed to “keep” his brain sharp—one of the sharpest on the planet. Gupta dove into times past to look at dementia. He looked at ancient history, through the Enlightenment, and into the modern era. Keep Sharp appeals to a diversified bevy of readers as a double gem for popular science and medical advice. Although avoiding medical jargon is impossible for cognitive dysfunction, Gupta shows us a simplified, engaging, and compelling story built around one of the most complex objects we know of—the human brain. Defining his terms right out of the gate gives the reader what they need to understand and act upon. The reader begins to learn how our physical and mental activities effect our brains. Boosting one’s brain prowess with medically established methods to help prevent Alzheimer's’ arises as a dominant theme. Dr. Gupta sculpted his narrative's contents with plenty of advice for those who show symptoms of the first stages of dementia. He puts his arm around the reader, tells him or her how to get the help they need, secure a proper diagnosis, and how to come to grips with the most adverse effects. Gupta pieces together valuable resources in the final chapter to guide those who carry a diagnosis of dementia. Though his approach is predictably straightforward and practical, he infuses it with the empathy and understanding of a good doctor. His goal: bring the issue of Alzheimer’s, its significance, its challenges, and possible solutions to a broader audience.
