What if they weren't real limbs (real as in "human", as in "alive")? What if they turned you from "vegetable" to "freak?" wouldn't you rather be dead?
But Steve Austin wasn't one to accept death, no matter how much he wanted it--no matter the cost of living.
And so the story goes....
How exactly would you do surgery on a limbless man to apppend machine parts? Certainly not all at once. Maybe one limb at a time. How would you keep the patient from bleeding to death in the process? How would he heal? What would keep him from going crazy?
Caidin answers all these questions as if he had lived through it himself (hmmm.....). The science is very real, the psychology even moreso.
Do yourself a favor and find and read this book. You will not regret it.
The book on the other hand plays Steve majors off as a James Bond type of spy with a few extra tricks. It was a good read. Also it was interesting to see what they thought we might be able to do with robotic body parts and how not so far we have come.
Kinda makes you wonder if James Cameron didn't get inspiredfrom this book or the TV series to write his Terminator movie.
This book is simaler to another book the Author wrote called Man-fac. Though in Man-fac, the person wears a robot suite that looks very much like a human.
Who knows maybe in a hundred years we'll be talking about this book and how he predicted a few things like Mary Shelly did in Frankenstein [transplants].
