Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever by Ray Kurzweil

The author has some good reputation, and it got mostly positive reviews in Amazon.com. However, I heard it is too extreme (200 supplement pills a day).

Does anyone have an opinion about this book?

I've heard of Ray Kurzweil, he's a well-known scientist, inventor & futurist who made his name in optical character recognition & related microelectronic technologies.

I'm sure this book makes interesting reading, but I'd take his nutritional ideas with a grain of salt, since that's not exactly his field of expertise.

Here's what Wikipedia says about him:

That's what I thought too, but he is very methodical and does extensive research on every topic he's interested in.
