Reviews

"[An] eruption of tomorrow's topics…" -- Andrei Yuri Lubomudrov, Willamette Week

"…insightful and well formulated." -- Andrei Yuri Lubomudrov, Willamette Week

"An intriguing social survey perfect for discussion groups." -- Reviewer's Bookwatch

"…a supremely readable book, enlivened by weird science and slap-shot one-liners." -- Wired, Mark Dery

"…Cyborg Citizen is a ripping good yarn-just the thing for Dr. Moreau's waiting room." -- Wired, Mark Dery

"In Cyborg Citizen, Gray manages to bridge the understanding gap between technology and politics. He uses a wealth of historical perspective to look intot he future of a cyber-augmented culture, and show us with depth and clarity what the changes will mean to our lives as individuals and as a society. The book is readable by people with all different levels of technological sophistication, and has much new to offer no matter how much you have already thought about the issues." -- Terry Winograd

"Cyborg Citizen is an accessible, comprehensive, and intelligent guide to the complexities of citizenship in the posthuman world. Sprinkled with first-person accounts, Cyborg Citizen is no dry academic treatise but an invaluable and useful guide to the ethical challenges of a future that is already upon us." -- Katherine Hayles, UCLA
