"Smith deserves exceptionally high marks for providing an eminently readable, profoundly
insightful and thoughtful conversation on the impact of biotechnology."American Conservative
What is embryonic stem cell research? Why is it so controversial? What is its relationship to human
cloning? Events are moving so fastand biotechnology seems so complicatedthat many of us don't
have an informed opinion about issues that are remaking the human future before our very eyes.
Now Wesley J. Smith provides us with a guide to the new world that is no longer a figment of our imagination
but right around the corner of our lives. This highly readable and carefully researched book reports on the
gargantuan "big biotech" industry and its supporters in science and in the universities. Smith reveals how this
lobby works and how the ideology of "scientism," mixed with the lure of riches, threatens to dismantle ethical
norms and compromise the uniqueness and importance of all human life.
Wesley J. Smith is the author of Forced Exit and Culture of Death. He is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute and a special consultant to the Center for Bioethics and Culture. He lives with his wife, the syndicated columnist Debra J. Saunders, in Castro Valley, California.
