What does it mean to live in a time when medical science can not only cure the human body but also reshape it? How should we as individuals and as a society respond to new drugs and genetic technologies? Sheila and David Rothman address these questions with a singular blend of history and analysis, taking us behind the scenes to explain how scientific research, medical practice, drug company policies, and a quest for peak performance combine to exxagerate potential benefits and minimize risks. Includes an Index. "A fascinating history and analysis of an important medical trend that threatens to overwhelm an already strained system." - Arnold S. Relman, M.D., editor in chief emeritus, The New England Journal of Medicine
