From Michael Crichton, the #1 bestselling author of Jurassic Park and The Andromeda Strain, comes an astounding, eye-opening look at the world of genetics: Next.

Is a loved one missing some body parts? Are blondes becoming extinct? Is everyone at your dinner table of the same species? Humans and chimpanzees differ in only 400 genes; is that why a chimp fetus resembles a human being? And should that worry us? There's a new genetic cure for drug addiction--is it worse than the disease?

Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and genetic ownership shatters our assumptions.

From the Publisher:

Devishly clever, NEXT blends fact and fiction into a
breathless tale of a new world where nothing is as it seems and a set of
new possibilities can open at every turn.
NEXT challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing
the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, NEXT
shatters our assumptions and revels shocking new choices where we least
expect.
The future is Closer Than You Think.
