History has already progressed through an agricultural revolution, an industrial revolution, and an information revolution. The Neuro Revolution foretells a fast approaching fourth epoch, one that will radically transform how we all work, live and play.

Neurotechnology--brain imaging and other new tools for both understanding and influencing our brains--is accelerating the pace of change almost everywhere, from financial markets to law enforcement to politics to advertising and marketing, artistic expression, warfare, and even religious belief.

The Neuro Revolution introduces you to the brilliant people leading this worldwide transformation, taking you into their laboratories, boardrooms and courtrooms for a unique, insider's glimpse into the startling future now appearing at our doorstep. From foolproof lie detectors to sure-fire investment strategies to super-enhanced religious and aesthetic experiences, the insights and revelations within The Neuro Revolution will foster wonder, debate, and in some cases consternation. Above all, though, they need to be understood by those who will be most affected--all of us.

This read reveals the many diverse facets of our lives that are and those that would be affected by studies in the field of neuroscience and neuro-technology
It shows that new fields of studies are being developed - neuro-ethics, neuro-law.
A most worthwhile read, especially for those who want to have some idea of the future and where we are heading.
