Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The 'Howard Families' were the product of a genetic experiment, sn interbreeding program which had produced one hundred thousand people with an average life expectancy of a century and a half.

Now, at last, their existance was known on Earth, and the entire world demanded to share the "secret" of eternal youth.

'An example of Heinlein's imaginative mind at its best.'

'I enjoyed every light-year of it'

'Throughout its electrifying 200 pages the book shocks, staggers, confounds belief, and mesmerises the senses into a state of complete unreality, but it never fails to fascinate.'
