The Age of Living Machines: How Biology Will Build the Next Technology Revolution

By Susan Hockfield
As our global population surges, climate change and new extremes loom, and healthcare costs rise, countries and communities worldwide face unprecedented challenges. World-renowned neuroscientist Susan Hockfield asserts that the next generation of technological advances to address these issues will be rooted heavily in biology. From bionic limbs to computer-engineered agriculture, new biology-rich innovations offer an exciting glimpse at our future.

Susan Hockfield's lively and authoritative book brings to life the bio-revolution that is coming and that will dwarf the computer revolution in causing disruption--for better and worse.--Ashton B. Carter, former U.S. secretary of defense, director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School, and MIT Innovation Fellow
