Maybe "figures" would be better, or something else. I had difficulty when
wanting to include Raquel Welch and the "thinkers" didn't apply. However,
she is very bright (she often acts as her own attorney), but this is not
why I wanted to include her. It is because she has defied the myth about
beauty and age as has several other pioneering sex symbols. And, her book
on Yoga is excellent - we worked out together in Yoga, so I know she walks
her walk. I definitely don't want only scientists and technologists!!
This is most important. I'm trying to wake up the mainstream about
superlongevity and the best way to do it is to combine scientific advocates
with cultural communicators.

Good catch Damien. Max just suggested the "figures." I'll toss it around
and see how it comes together. Maybe the best (working) title subtitle for
it is just to use "Cracking Myths of Mortality."
