Overview

We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps; a time when it's possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars and test our spouses for genetic maladies. We live in a time when one-fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes.

We live in a new world where nothing is what it seems. The future is closer than you think.

The enhanced e-book for Next, the first ever enhanced e-book from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Michael Crichton, includes five exclusive videos with leading experts on genetics and law. These videos examine Crichton’s opinions on the implications of policy issues like applying patents to genes, giving people control over what is done with their tissue and passing laws that give genetic information to the public. Experts include Lori Andrews, Kathy Giusti, Harry Ostrer, MD., and Stuart Newman, MD. Also included is a feature called “Who Owns Your Body”, an interactive map of the human body, with information about genes that are owned by different companies, as well as videos of Michael Crichton discussing his insights and one on the important legacy he has left us.
