Inspiring books

December 1, 2017

I am often asked where I get all my informations from. The answer I often give (most of the time to the disappointment of my dialogue partner) is: There are so many I really can't list them all.

However, because I got this asked repeatedly, I already made some promises to write a post about at least the books I read - and today I am going to fulfil these promises.

 

Below you will find a list of my favourite books, along with a link to a store and a very short description of what it is about.

Enjoy browsing...

    {Nexus, Crux, Apex}

    The Nexus Trilogy is about the development of a "techno-drug" that can act as an operating

[This is probably the book that got me hooked up with transhumanism the most.]
