Nor is it just a book about science. Rather it's a fascinating look at how our emotional needs are bending the reaches of science and technology, as well as a study of this uncharted territory. Are we crossing the boundary of controlling science in the name of science, in the name of love, in the name of merchandising—or a blend of all three?
