Overview

There have been at least 25 prototype humans. We are but one more model, and there is no evidence evolution has stopped. Juan Enriquez and Steve Gullans, two of the world's most eminent science authors, researchers, and entrepreneurs, take you into a world where humans increasingly shape their environment, their own selves, and other species. By the end you will see a broad, and sometimes scary, map of life science-driven change. Not just our bodies will be altered but our core religious, government, and social structures as humankind makes the transition to a new species, a Homo Evolutis, which directly and deliberately controls its own evolution and that of many other species.

"Homo Evolutis," is part of the TED Books series. Each volume is a powerful idea that can be read in a single sitting.
