Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity: R.U. Sirius, Jay Cornell: 9781938875090:
I don't remember to pointed to this

"RU Sirius and Jay Cornell present us with their own psychedelic guide to the galaxy in this adventurous idea-rich book, bootstrapping on emerging technologies that beckon us to take control of our evolutionary destiny and lead humanity towards radical new landscapes of mind, of dream, of cosmos, of possibility. Metaphors for self-transcendence are 'literalized' as we 'timelapse' our capacity to artfully remake the world and ourselves." --Jason Silva

"Sure-footed guides through the treacherous landscapes of infinite possibility, RU Sirius and Jay Cornell are lucid, witty, and stealthily profound. Transcendence is a refreshingly pro-human report on transhumanism and the 'Rapture of the Nerds.'" --Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now

"This is without doubt the most delightful guide to the radical future." -Walter Isaacson

"A wild tour of our possible future… friendly, fun, and extremely interesting, even hard to put down... creatives, circuitheads, and fans of science fiction will find plenty here to stimulate the mind." --Anna Call, Foreword Reviews

"Being of the same energy field as myself, I now throw a sack full of gold dust into the arena and dare anyone to be either funnier or smarter than this R. U. Sirius." -Andrei Codrescu
