Modern science is leading us into vast uncharted territory--far beyond the invention of nuclear weapons or taking us to the moon. Today, in labs all over the world, scientists are performing experiments that threaten to fundamentally alter the practical character and ethical color of our everyday lives.
In The End of Life as We Know It, bestselling author Michael Guillen takes a penetrating look at how the scientific community is pushing the boundaries of morality.
