Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

""David Ewing Duncan takes us on a deep, exhilarating dive into the hidden worlds of being human; both an erudite guide and an amazingly willing lab rat, Duncan has written a book that looks inward and outward at the same time: inward to the mysteries of the self, and outward to the horizon of our species' extraordinary, and sometimes alarming, future."" -- Steven Johnson author of The Invention of Air

""Experimental is one of those rare books that, as soon as you pick it up, you say to yourself, why didn't I think of that? David Ewing Duncan has come up with a simple but elegant conceit that yields a rich trove of information and insight about how we live now."" -- Michael Pollan author of The Omnivore's Dilemma

""Twenty years from now, David Duncan's pioneering grand experiment will become commonplace. Duncan is measuring how both genes and environmental chemicals affect our health by testing his own body. His self-experiment will inform, guide, and inspire the millions who will follow him in the great quest for truly personalized medicine. It's not often you get to read a book mailed back from the future, but the one you hold is just that: news from the year 2029."" -- Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick at Wired and author of New Rules for the New Economy

""David Ewing Duncan may be the most thoroughly tested healthy human on the planet. He hits the mark with this bold journey into the emerging era of high-tech genomics and medicine for healthy people. After having his body poked and probed in every way, he pulls no punches in separating hype from reality, describing what this new knowledge has (and has not) meant for him, and conveying how these developments will reshape the way we see ourselves. Experimental Man is brilliant, provocative, timely . . . and a wonderful read."" -- Gregory Stock, PhD, author of Redesigning Humans

""Experimental Man dares to ask 'Who am I?' in a way it's never been asked before. In that sense, it will change the way we construct the story of our self, blending biological diagnostics in with the now-familiar prisms of personal history and psychology. Through this new lens, we are all a Frankenstein."" -- Po Bronson, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller What Should I Do with My Life?
