Imagine if it was possible to have the perfect sexual relationship without compromise, eat meat without killing animals, have babies without the need to bear them, and choose the time of our painless death. Life would be better, right?

All over the globe, people are trying to make this a reality. They want to use technology to solve the thorniest problems of humanity. But what if these ‘problems’ are the very things that make us human?

Join Jenny Kleeman on an entertaining, thought-provoking adventure to a place where sex robots and vegan meat are no longer science fiction – right here, right now.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A tour of the lurid fringes of the tech world . . . Kleeman is an acerbic guide, whose understated common sense contrasts with the grandiosity of her interviewees. - The Times

Kleeman’s entertaining survey of the latest advances in life sciences . . . a little like Louis Therouxchannelling Margaret Atwood. She is an accomplished storyteller - Johanna Thomas-Corr, New Statesman

A moreish page-turner of a book that will leave you feeling informed and ready for the next dinner party. - Herald

A pleasingly sceptical investigation into the innovations that could change the way we eat, have sexand die . . . compelling and thoughtful - Fiona Sturges, Guardian

A fascinating book . . . It was so absolutely absorbing. I really, really loved this book. - Jane Garvey, BBC Radio 4

Mesmerising - Daily Mail

Thoughtful and diverting . . . Even if it doesn’t have the answers, this elegantly written and eye-opening book poses the right questions - Ed Cumming, inews.co.uk

A fascinating examination of what the future holds . . . you will never look at a chickennugget in quite the same way again - Elizabeth Day, author How to Fail

The future is a fairly scary place, but there is no better guide to it than Jenny Kleeman. By turns alarming, funny, thought-provoking and fascinating, this is a book that brilliantly shows us where much of our life (and death) is heading. - Stig Abell

Fascinating . . . an epic exercise in concision – all four of these sprawling chapters could have run to books on their own, and at times I wish they had - Eleanor Halls, Daily Telegraph

Thoughtful scepticism makes Kleeman a savvy guide, and her fresh insights into, for example, disruptive technology’s gender dimension, underpin provocative takes on progress and human nature itself. Thoroughly absorbing - Observer
