9780091897475: How to Clone the Perfect Blonde: Making Fantasies Come True with Cutting-Edge Science

In an attempt to create the most popular science book ever, Nelson & Hollingham use cutting-edge science and technology to bring a little more happiness into our lives: cloning a faithful pet so that an old friend will forever be there to fetch your slippers, recreating a Grand National winner in a petri dish, avoiding arguments by actually being in two places at once, boosting your intelligence with an extra brain, or simply making sure you don't get too cold with heat-sensitive underpants that tell your boiler what to do. Topics include: biotechnology, quantum mechanics, gene therapy, time travel, parallel universes, black holes, GM, bionics, cybernetics, cryogenics, nanotechnology, teleportation and antigravity.
