Evolving Ourselves : How Un-Natural Selection is Changing Life on Earth Paperback
Why are rates of conditions like autism, asthma, obesity and allergies exploding at an unprecedented pace?
Why are humans living longer, getting smarter and having far fewer children?
If Darwin were alive today, how would he explain this new world?
Could our children eventually become a different species - or several?
In Evolving Ourselves, futurist Juan Enriquez and scientist Steve Gullans take us on a sweeping tour of how humans are changing the course of evolution - sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.
It is a chronicle of where our remarkable new capabilities for altering our bodies, other living creatures, and our environment are taking us in the near term, and introduces the possibility that we might cause our own extinction in the long run.
