Jamie Metzl - Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity
After 3.8 billion years humankind is about to evolve...through a new set of rules.
Hacking Darwin is the first book to both fully and commercially explore the fascinating and controversial effect genetic engineering will have on the future of the world. Geopolitics and biotechnology expert Jamie Metzl reveals how society is on the brink of incredible new science where the power to 'upgrade' our children, eliminate diseases, and resurrect extinct species will shake the core foundations we’ve embraced since the dawn of time.
"Jamie Metzl's book - ranging through genetics, human destiny and the future -- is an incredible trove of information for scientists, futurists, technologists, entrepreneurs, and virtually every intrigued, interested reader. A gifted and thoughtful writer, Metzl brings us to the frontiers of biology and technology, and reveals a world full of promise and peril. This is a must-read book."
