Although they obviously failed in their ultimate quest, Lindbergh and Carrel's experiments established them as two of the most ambitious thinkers in modern history, as well as unacknowledged pioneers of biotechnology.
"A captivating study of medical innovation, the fallibility of science and two adventurous minds." (Kirkus Reviews)

Fascinating and sobering
A fascinating and cautionary tale of scientific and engineering hubris. I thought I knew about Lindbergh but was surprised and saddened by his anti-Semitism and belief in eugenics. I whiled away many long hours on planes with the well-written story. The reader captures the mood of the times and presents the narrative well. This is worth your time.

Surprisingly interesting and relevant
The remarkable stories of the two larger-than-life personalities that feature in this audiobook have a great deal to say to all thoughtful modern-day technoprogressives, transhumanists, futurists, and life-extensionists. Frequently surprising. Highly recommended.
