What's coming Next? Get a hint of what Michael Crichton sees on the horizon in this short video clip: high bandwidth or low bandwidth
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 to test our spouses for genetic maladies.

A great page turner! This book makes you consider the implications of science in a real world scenario instead of the abstract.Published 2 months ago by Michelle D. Dusek
This was an engaging read, but at the end I realized there's not much substance to it at all. In fact, I destroyed this book after reading it so it wouldn't end up in another... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ryan
