This is a must read as we enter into the future of Genetic engineering. The information age is pushing the envelope on all the we hold sacred. This book shows how the information age in medicine is making more extreme studies available and gives cause for one to consider if some things should just be stopped. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521478073, Paperback)

This book is a philosophically sophisticated and scientifically well-informed discussion of the moral and social issues raised by genetically engineering animals, a powerful technology that has major implications for society. Unlike other books on this emotionally charged subject, the author attempts to inform, not inflame, the reader about the real problems society must address in order to manage this technology. Nontechnical and anecdotal in nature, written by a professor of philosophy, physiology and biophysics, this book will appeal to both specialists and general readers with an interest in genetic engineering.
