About the author

An Audience for Einstein was written out of concern about the astonishing medical breakthroughs being made that raise a whole host of difficult ethical issues. Cloning, genetic engineering, stem cell research and other experiments are beginning to push the boundaries of what it means to be human, for better or for worse. While our ability to create "designer humans" is still in its infancy and not an immediate concern, when the younger generations mature they'll have to struggle with whether or not to implement these medical techniques and to what degree. An Audience for Einstein gives those generations the opportunity to begin discussing these important issues at an early age and understand those decisions won't always be easy.
