This will be recognized in the New Age as one of the most important books of the past century leading to the reformation of human society. Its prophetic vision is comparable to Theodore Sturgeon's much earlier (1960) Venus Plus X, which is fiction. This book is NOT FICTION.
I unflinchingly say that every person on earth should read and contemplate the message of this volume. Here you will find, elaborated in complete social, legal, and engineering detail, how a new, ethical, society of true equality can be built on the bones of our presently decayed one.
Most of the text of this book has been on-line for the past year or two. Simply Google the two words Transgender and Transhuman in the same query. The on-line version contains many graphics and illustrations that, while not required to understand the text, lighten the reading experience. Since the web publication is in the form of an extended blog, the printed book is easier to read and more complete.
This book is a must read for anyone who cares to seriously understand the critical factors driving the future of human social and personally directed evolution.
However, my enjoyment (and my five star rating) of this book are held back by some rather serious issues with formatting. I don't know if they came about during the transition from the paper to digital formats, but throughout the book, there are a number of points where sections of text are randomly moved out of their proper place and to the bottom of the paragraph. Usually, if you're good with words, you can still figure out how to piece it together, but if I were to redo this purchase, I'd probably go for a hard copy. I may still get a hard copy one of these days, but I'll have to see it in person.
