Beyond Human is an informative and accessible guide for all those interested in the developing sciences of genetic engineering, bio printing and human cloning. Illustrating the ideas with reference to well-known science fiction films and novels, the author provides a unique insight into and understanding of how genetic manipulation, cloning, and other novel bio-technologies will one day allow us to redesign our species. It also addresses the legitimate concerns about "playing God", while at the same time embracing the positive aspects of the scientific trajectory that will lead to our transhuman future.

From the book reviews: "The book is well-written and fully illustrated in color. ... this is an excellent volume that reads like the best science fact articles in Analog. SF writers in particular will want to read Beyond Human as a reference, but it's also a rewarding read for anyone who enjoys speculating on the frontiers of current science." (Don Sakers, Analog Science Fiction & Fact, April, 2015)
