From the Author
My main goal was to inspire readers with a powerful artistic statement that would challenge their ideas of life and death. The rapid advancement of life extension science and technology will drastically change everything in our society far sooner than most people realize.
Your novel is quite controversial. Why is that?
The primary reason is that the novel's subject matter challenges virtually everyone. And since The Transhumanist Wager is an indie book, neither publisher nor editor was able to temper its content in the name of political correctness, religiosity, or commercialism.
Did your journalism career influence the writing of the novel?
Yes, definitely. Many of the central characters and scenes in the book are directly taken from places I've visited and stories I've covered, especially for the National Geographic Channel.

Mr. Istvan provides, via this excellent fictional tome, an outline of a blueprint to that very end.
I recommend it to open minded individuals interested in futurism and the possibility of hope for our species becoming the best version of ourselves as a global society & as individuals.
Be warned however, one could easily skip into the skeptics seat & over emphasize the seemingly freakish control & coldly narcissistic aspects of the transhumanist & the final result of the successful fruition Transhumanism, for that is simply your preconceived notions & biases pulling your open mind shut.
