Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Provocative…A double-edged vision of the post-human.” Wall Street Journal
“Good. Scary good.” Wired
“An incredibly imaginative, action-packed intellectual romp! Ramez Naam has turned the notion of human liberty and freedom on its head by forcing the question: Technology permitting, should we be free to radically alter our physiological and mental states?” Dani Kollin, Prometheus Award–winning author of The Unincorporated Man
“A rich cast of characters…The action scenes are crisp, the glimpses of future tech and culture are mesmerizing.” Publishers Weekly
“Any old writer can take you on a roller-coaster ride, but it takes a wizard like Ramez Naam to take you on the same ride while he builds the roller coaster a few feet in front of your plummeting car…You’ll want to read it before everyone’s talking about it.” John Barnes, author of the Timeline Wars and Daybreak series
