Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever is a 2004 book by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman about increasing one's personal longevity. The authors claim that indefinite life extension will be possible for people alive today with future technology. The book focuses on a program of currently-available methods such as diets and supplements that they suggest to increase one's chances of being alive long enough to take advantage of radical life extension technology and live indefinitely.[1][2][3]

Kurzweil and Grossman later wrote a 2009 follow-up book, Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever.

The knowledge exists, if aggressively applied, for you to slow aging and disease processes to such a degree that you can be in good health and good spirits when the more radical life-extending and life-enhancing technologies become available over the next couple of decades."

"The book purports to make the scientific case that immortality is within our grasp thanks to modern technology, and that it can be reached via three so-called "bridges". The first bridge relies on the latest medical research into ageing and how to counteract the process of getting older with "nutritionals" (food and food supplements), meditation and exercise. The second bridge is about bioengineering and how we will soon be able to grow a new heart in situ, or be vaccinated against diseases that kill millions of people, such as cancer."
