Talk: Eternal Sonata

Jamie Metzl's new novel, Eternal Sonata, imagines a future global struggle to control the science of extreme human life extension. The near-term sci-fi thriller raises fundamental questions about our millennial quest for immortality and what we might be willing to do to attain it. Metzl has written extensively about the genetics revolution and other technology issues, and the novel is infused with insights about the implications of exponential life science technologies. Google's Ray Kurzweil says, "’Eternal Sonata’ is a brilliant exploration of the many challenges and opportunities our species will face as the exponential growth of real-world technology moves us toward immortality.”
