"Stealing Time is about how and why we age. Research exploring new frontiers on the cellular and genetic levels is providing astonishing insights into the aging process, with evolution and natural selection explaining why some species age more slowly than others and some not at all. Warshofsky also examines the new paradigm of aging: a long life need not be one of disease and decline. He discusses in detail the recent discoveries that have extended the lives of animals and how this breakthrough information offers soon-to-be-realized methods of extending human life.

The patent wars : the battle to own the world's technology by Fred Warshofsky( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The patent game becomes more complicated with the development of each new product and technology. Nowhere is the phenomenon more evident than in software, semiconductors, and biotechnology. Warshofsky delves into each of these highly sophisticated industries. In the software industry, for instance, Warshofsky dissects patent battles such as Apple v. Microsoft and Borland v. Lotus that have made front-page headlines. The Patent Wars is the first book to take an incisive look at this new business offensive and its consequences, including hackers and piracy in cyberspace. As more and more companies deliberately strive to prohibit competition and innovation, this stimulating and highly informative book will become essential reading for people in business and finance, technology-watchers, and policymakers
The rebuilt man : the story of spare-parts surgery by Fred Warshofsky( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1965 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suppose the vital organs, the irreplaceable mechanisms of life, were replaceable? If a heart wore out, install a new one. If a liver or kidneys deteriorated, discard them for fresh and vigorous substitutes. Diseased or injured parts of the body, including some of its vital organs, can now be replaced. The replacements can be of metal and plastic or natural organs and tissues from animals and human beings. This bold approach to the preservation of life is a brilliant blend of science, mechanics, and art called transplantation. Its eventual applications seem unlimited, it present problems enormous, its current progress encouraging. - p. 1-2
