'Extraordinary' ALICE ROBERTS

Welcome to a revolution in the science of you - this is the landmark new book from award-winning scientist Daniel M. Davis.

Imagine taking drugs to help you acquire new skills, or knowing years in advance the precise likelihood of developing specific cancers, or following a diet and health regime tailored to your microbiome, or even having continuous monitoring of your body's workings and well-being.

Written by an award-winning scientist, this landmark book shows how these radical and disconcerting possibilities have been made real. It is at once a gripping drama of scientific ingenuity, discovery and collaboration, and a vision of the human body of dizzying complexity and wonder.

'The startling new discoveries...are radically altering our understanding of how we function and what our future holds' BRIAN COX

'A big-picture forecast of how medicine stands on the threshold of a revolution that will radically change all of our lives' The Times
