KEN SILBER gives a thumbs-up to Ron Bailey's new book:

Liberation Biology makes a strong case for the likelihood of better living through biotechnology in the coming decades. The book adds some balance to a debate that has been dominated in recent times by exaggerated risks and overblown fears.

I haven't finished Bailey's book -- got sidetracked with Ray Kurzweil's -- but I'm about halfway through and I think it's first-rate.
