Promises much, delivers much less
on December 12, 2016
He lost me with endless lists of expensive medical tests he recommends. I don't know about your doctor, but mine wouldn't take kindly to my approaching him the way Kurzweil suggests, with an extremely long list of things I want him to do. Doctors usually order tests they think are necessary, and many of these will not be considered so. Beyond that, I expected this to be a step-by-step ("Nine Steps") guide, telling me what to do to be well and live a long life. Instead, the information is presented in a confusing mini explosion of ideas on pages, with the guidance that individuals will each need individualized plans. Are we expected to get this plan by paying a fortune to become his patients? His fees are extremely high. I was left not really knowing what he intended for me to do, and with a sort of sick feeling that if I don't find a way to pay for his program, I'm likely to die much younger than necessary. I find that I'm left just resenting his half-help. Might have been useful if I had tens of thousands of dollars to spare on his individualized programs.
