In an attempt to engineer the most popular science book ever, Nelson and Hollingham try to make our everyday fantasies come true using the very latest in scientific theory: the dating game simplified with human cloning, righting everyday mistakes with time travel, avoiding the dreaded commute using teleportation and flying cars, plus living forever, always winning, becoming a permanent size 12 or making your home townor place of work disappear forever. While th humour of the fantasy is always kept in view and addressed, the book takes a detailed look at the cutting edge science that just could make it possible. Topics touched on include: biotechnology, quantum mechanics, gene therapy, time travel, parallel universes, block holes, genetic modification, bionics, cybernetics, crygenics, nanotechnology, teleportation and antigravity.

A valiant attempt to turn young people and other nonscientists on to reality. Uses as its hook a number of common fantasies such as teleportation and living forever. Read full review
