Our DNA is becoming as readable, writable, and hackable as our information technology in a genetic revolution that will transform our healthcare, the way we make babies, the nature of the babies we make, and our evolution as a species.

But although the choices we make today will be the difference between realizing breathtaking advances in human well-being and descending into a dangerous genetic arms race, we aren’t at all ready for this fast-approaching future.

Jamie Metzl’s Hacking Darwin is your guide to what’s happening, what’s at stake, and what we each and all must do now to prepare.
