Product Overview

In Enhancing Me, Pete Moore examines the ways in which technology can change our bodies, our brains, our emotions, and our longevity. He talks to people who claim to have been ''enhanced'' to find out what it''s like and how beneficial it is; and to the experts to find out what the future holds - including a look at some of the more controversial, headline-grabbing claims. The book also looks at what drives us to want to be ''superhuman'', and the consequences for the individual and society alike.

Should we insert chips into our children, so we can track where they are?

If you could live forever, would you want to?

If you could download your mind onto a computer, would it ''become'' you?

Should we force violent criminals to have mood-controlling brain implants?

Would you want technology to improve your memory... or help you forget?

Discover. Question. Provoke.
